With the upcoming release of the much anticipated sequel The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, we decided to do an inspired hair tutorial on how to do the braid Primrose Everdeen is wearing in all the trailers.
Step 1: Create a side part and divide the hair into two sections.
Step 2: At the end of the side part, begin an inverted braid (Dutch braid) along the the part line towards the forehead, only grasping additional hair from the side closer to the part.
Step 3: Once you have braided to the forehead line, start moving the braid down and around, grasping additional hair from both sections until you reach behind the ear.
Step 4: Continue the braid across the back of the head, but this time grasping additional from from the side closest to the head until you reach the other side of the ear. Continue the braid down the length of the hair and secure the ends with a hair tie.
Tip: If the braid is laying awkwardly, use bobby pins to pin it behind the ear to hold it in place.
Good luck, or should be say: may the odds be ever in your favor!

As you may or may not have realized by now, I am obsessed with braids – and who can blame me, they are not only fun to create and so versatile, but they are all the rage right now.
So, I came across a picture of someone with this elaborate braid incorporated into a ponytail – braided down the side of her head – and it had FIVE count ‘em FIVE strands.
I was in awe. Have you ever seen something this cool? It reminds me of those friendship bracelets me and my friends used to make each other when we were little! Definitely unique.
I have tried it out, and it does take a little practice to master.
You start your braid wherever you want it in typical braid fashion – with three pieces. Then, you draw in to extra pieces from each side, winding them into your braid. Next, you continue to add in pieces, winding them back and forth down the braid as you add into it. The step-by-step is complicated, so instead of trying to get this by reading, check out this video how to:
