A catnus tutorial: Katniss Everdeen’s braid in the film.
Step 1: Part your hair to the side, taking the side of your part that was left with the lesser amount of hair, take a section of your hair.
Step 2: Section of that piece into three different strands.
Step 3: Begin to “dutch braid’ that section of your hair. A roman braid is essentially a backwards french braid. If you don’t know how to “dutch” braid, here is an easy tutorial. x
Step 4: keep going till you reach the nape of your neck.
Step 5: This was difficult to photograph, but once you reach the bottom, take the remainder of your hair and split it into three strands, as if you were just doing a side braid.
Step 6: Secure the braid at the end with your tie of choice and you’re done! However, to get it to look even more like hers, take little strands of your hair by the ear and take them out of your hair, as pictured above.
Tips: This looks best with wavyish hair or semi-curly hair, just like Jenn’s in the movie. I recommend the use of a texturizer or “wave spray” to achieve the desired look. Try not too be too perfect with it, and let it look a bit messy! It gives it the most authentic look. This can be difficult to accomplish if you’re not experienced with braids, so good luck!
