May the odds be ever in your favor -- Get the look! (Hair tutorial): Katniss Everdeen braid from The Hunger Games

So I am a bit late. I know a lot of bloggers and Youtube beauty gurus had already done this tutorial and I didn't jump on the bandwagon when this trend started but I still wanted to share this because I'm obsessed with it lately. This hairstyle is perfect for school, casual or lazy days, romantic dinner or even for an everyday look.


(c) I do not own the first photo. I got it from this site. The second photo is mine.

If you know how to do a dutch or reverse braid, then this will be easy for you. As its name suggests, it's basically the reverse of a french braid. If you don't know how to do it, here's a quick dutch braid tutorial.

How I did it:




The reverse regular braid up close. You may notice that the braid's direction is upwards, unlike the regular braid which is downwards. If you know what I mean. ;)


You can see the reflection of my lights at the door haha


For a more detailed explanation of this tutorial, see this video.

Good luck! You may (or may not) send me photos or messages through email if you ever do this hairstyle. I'd be happy to see/read how it will turn out on you. :)

*Sorry if it's not perfect! I did my braid on the right because it is what I'm used to and I know my braid is a bit low.

(c) I do not own the videos linked on this post. They belong to their respective owners.


P.S. I'm having a blog collaboration with my blogger friends! I'll post it when we're done with the photo shoot. *Hint hint* The theme is about a TV series. Can you guess what it is? ;)

Till the next post! Take care everyone.
Xoxo, Em
