I am a huge fan of The Hunger Games so I am super excited to share with you the ever famous Katniss Braid. Wendy from Latest Hairstyles walks you through the creation process, step by step!
“This is a relatively straightforward hairstyle. But to recreate the Katniss braid, you may want to get some hair extensions,” explains Wendy Rose Gould, beauty expert for hair tutorial and advice site www.Latest-Hairstyles.com. “We’re using Effortless Exensions’ Sip On Hair, which is temporary and easy to work with. If you don’t need to add length, skip to step three.”
Katniss Braid Tutorial
Step 1: Apply Serum
Prep your hair by apply hair serum. This will tame frizz, make your hair easier to manage, and will also help create the same kind of shine that a lot of faux hair pieces have, thereby allowing it to blend a little easier. We’re using Cureology Smoothing Anti-Frizz Hair Serum.
Step 2: Apply Extensions
This step will vary depending on what kind of extensions you’re adding.
Step 3: Move Hair
Shift all your hair to one side of your head.
Step 4: Part Hair
Part your hair down the center.
Step 5: Fishtail Braid
Now for the most arduous part of this hair tutorial: creating your fishtail braid (and it’s not even difficult). To do this, divide your hair into two sections, then drag an outer piece of hair from one section over to the other section. Pull tight, then repeat on the opposite side. Continue pulling tight as your braid the length of your hair, securing with a clear elastic on the end. Make sure all your hair is draped to one side of your head (secure with bobby pins if necessary), and then pull out sections of hair for that “piece-y,” and lived in look. You can use a texturizer or more serum to get those strands. Also twist each of these pieces to keep them separated.
