We uploaded our 1st version of the Katniss Braid several months before the movie came out. Right after the movie premier, Linda Flowers, the lead hairstylist on The Hunger Games movie set, personally reached out to CuteGirlsHairstyles when she saw how popular our tutorial was! Can you believe it... she reached out to US!!!
Linda was so amazed at how iconic the Katniss Braid became, so much that teen girls were wearing the braid to see the movie in theaters! She recognized that CuteGirlsHairstyles helped in teaching thousands of our fans how to do the braid! As such, Linda offered to give me a "personal" tutorial of the many Hunger Games hairstyles over Skype!
During our tutorial, I quickly saw that Katniss' style had a little more to it than what I had originally thought! Linda showed me how she added the texture into Jennifer Lawrence's hair "before" she created the Katniss braid (something I had not figured out). She uses a tool called the TopStyler® (by InStyler®) to add volume and stranded twists into the diagonal Dutch braid. I show you how to do this in the tutorial.
You can find the TopStyler at Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, Ulta, or online at the following link...
I appreciate that the TopStyler uses a slow and uniform transfer heat to curl the hair, rather than the immediate hot heat a curling wand provides that only heats the outside of the strand.
This is the exact look Katniss wore throughout the arena scenes in the movie, taught to CuteGirlsHairstyles personally by the one who created it... Linda Flowers!
