While at work today, I wanted to pull my hair out of my face without doing my go-to ponytail, so instead I decided to do a Katniss-inspired French braid, which is definitely more interesting!
I took a small, inch-sized portion of my hair on the left side of my head and regular braided it once, starting the braid back above my ear.
Then I started French braided by gathering somewhat large portions of hair as I went along. I didn't want it to be too tight, so I braided it with just enough pull so that it would stay throughout the day.
When I got to the right side of my head it got a bit more complicated since I'd never done this type of braid before and there was a little bit of hair remaining, so I just gathered it all together and regular braided it a few times, and then used an elastic band to keep it in place.
And, surprisingly, it stayed for the rest of the day. It came a little but undone where it stopped being a French braid and turned into a regular braid, but I think it looks pretty good. I'm definitely doing to do this for class!

What do you think of the braid?
