We got a new Hunger Games picture yesterday that had me very excited–because it’s the best view so far of Katniss’ hair. I’ve been trying to figure our her side-braid for months now. I want to be able to make it look just right on myself when I go to the midnight screening. And I’m aiming for the fancier version of the side-braid that Cinna gives her; the way she styles it herself in District 12 is easier and plainer.
Katniss’ Arena-hair goes sideways across her head more instead of just straight down. And it starts in a smaller braid, which we hadn’t had a clear view of until this new picture:
See how it sort of swoops across the back of her head? You can see it in one of posters, too. The way the braid sits out on the head a bit and the way the strands joining in are still distinct makes me think it’s more of a Dutch-style braid than French.
I hope this new picture helps me perfect the look. (Has anybody else already figured it out? Do you have any tips?) And if I get overly ambitious, I could always try for the Girl on Fire hairstyle.
**update** Here’s another new picture of the back of her side-braid from the back:
