Primrose Everdeen Braids | Hunger Games Hairstyles

March 19, 2012

We here at CGH are totally excited that the first movie in The Hunger Games series comes out this weekend!  In fact, it is about all that my twins are talking about!  They are dying to see the movie!

We recently posted our Katniss Everdeen Braid, which is gaining lots of traction on YouTube, and yesterday we  filmed two additional Hunger Games Hairstyles!

This one is the braided hairstyle wore by Katniss’ younger sister in the District 12 scene, which uses the French braiding technique.  {We scoured the internet for shots of her wearing the style and can confirm that they are French braids, and not Dutch braids.}

These differ than your standard Double French Braids as they run much closer to the hairline and actually “cup and hug” the ears so that the braids naturally want to hang over the shoulders.

We show you exactly how to get that unique braided look in the hairstyle tutorial below…

Items Needed:  Brush, rat-tail comb,  spray bottle, 2 clear elastic bands, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level:  Easy

Our hope is that all of you who are going to see the movie this weekend will want to wear one of these hairstyles to the theater! Be sure to share this link with your friends so that they will do the same!  Let’s see how many Hunger Games hairstyles we can get to the theaters!

The Hunger Games promises to be a successful movie franchise, so there will be many more fun hairstyles to come!  {It will be nice to actually see the movie, since so much has been left to secret photos and guesswork!}

Happy Hairdoing!

The Katniss Braid | Hunger Games Hairstyles

January 26, 2012

From time to time, we like to film super-fun hairstyles that we know that many of our fans will love. Today is one of those days!

My girls and I have read The Hunger Games series, were quickly drawn in to the story lines, and we absolutely love them! With the movie coming out on March 23, 2012, we have received quite a few requests from fans asking us to show some of the styles used in the movie.

Luckily for us, there are trailers and movie posters already available online that give us a tiny glimpse of a few scenes, in anticipation of the movie.

Today we are going to demonstrate Katniss’ Diagonal Dutch Braid hairstyle. {We also want to give a huge thanks to Lindsey, an extremely loyal fan, for emailing us the best shot of the hairstyle in the movie poster below!

Katniss' Braid Hairstyle | Hunger Games

This style uses an exact Dutch Braid starting on the front of the right side of the head and braiding back across the head in a diagonal direction until you can finish off the hair in a simple braid over the left shoulder.  This hairstyle reminds me of a style that Angelina Jolie would wear!

{In the tutorial below, I show you the Katniss style but do not actually go into the details how to do the braiding. If you want to see exactly how to do this, please click our Same-Side Dutch Braid Hairstyle link.}

It is important to note that this braid is intended to look messy, as Katniss was wearing this hairstyle in the arena during the games.

You will also note that I used a few hair extensions to add length to the braid, since my hair is short.  It worked well because my own hair acted as layers, which were perfect as some fell out in the hairstyle… just like in Katniss’ braid!

I know this will be a very popular braid, especially once the movie comes out on March 23, so you can help make this braid a viral sensation by referring it to all your girl friends on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc! That way millions of girls everywhere will wear this hairstyle to the theaters to see the movie! I know for sure that we will!

Please a comment and let me know if you plan to go see the movie, and don’t forget to share!

Big hugs!

Items Needed: Brush, 1 hairband, 1-2 bobby pins, hairspray {if desired}

Time Requirement: 5 minutes

Skill Level:  Medium

Happy Hairdoing!
