This weekend I stepped out to view the fabulous movie: The Hunger Games. That book is such a favorite of mine. I’ve read the series twice now and, yes…. I really love it. All the characters. The story. All of it.
Before seeing the movie I alway sort of imagined what the delicate reaping day hair style of Katniss really looked liked. So, today I share my version of the Katniss Reaping Day hair. Just a simple twist braid around the head ending in 2 buns on the side (I know… I like side buns. hee).
Step 1: Normally I have straight hair… but, I just happened to do my No Heat Curl the night before. It adds volume. Start the braid at the top of your head where your hair line is. Begin your twist braid. The twist braid is using two sections of hair and twisting it! Just grab bit of hair as you go along to secure it. If that’s still confusing. I made a little braid your bangs video a while back and share how I do the twist braid. Check out the bottom of the post for the video.
Step 2: Continue your twist braid around to the other side of your head (right below your ear). Roll that twist braid hair into a bun and pin it. And, with the remaining hair above the ear…. twist that and roll it into a bun and pin it above the first bun.
Step 3: You are finished. My little version of the reaping hair.
This style took less than 10 minutes to arrange. A bit of hair spray holds it in place. The end.
P.S. If you need a little help with the twist braid… I explain it a bit in this video.
