Katniss-Inspired French Braid

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!

My version...

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!

Watch this amazing Katniss tutorial by LetsMakeItUp1 that I wish I'd seen before just now:

Oh, and I wore my new peter pan collared shirt from Alloy! The lighting is a bit yellow in my bathroom, so the shirt is more of a rust color. You can see there's tiny dancing people on it.

What do you think of the braid?

  3. katniss' braid is a dutch braid though, which is what makes it more of a focal point, pops out. i also find it easier to do a dutch braid. with the dutch braid instead of goin over to the middle, you go under. makes a much bigger statement! you should it again!

    1. I know it's a Dutch braid, but I've just never liked the look of the Dutch braid personally, so I did a French-inspired one. Thanks for looking at my blog!
