Score Katniss' signature side braid for your costume


 
So you’re super pumped to be the tough Katniss Everdeen for Halloween, but you don’t know how you’re gonna pull off her awesome braid? No worries, here are some step-by-step instructions for getting your ’do ready for the arena.

 

Check out these quick ‘n’ easy steps from top hair & makeup pros Erica Whelan and Kerrie Urban!

 

Step 1: Use a dollop of Pantene Beautiful Lengths Strengthen and Smooth Finishing Crème to add texture and smooth frizzies.

Step 2: Begin a Dutch braid on the left side of your head, directly above your ear. A Dutch braid is done in the same style as a French braid, but instead of pulling the pieces over, you pull them under. This allows the braid to look as if it’s sticking up off the scalp.

 

Step 3: As you begin adding hair into the braid, remember to move sideways along your head so the braid is moving toward the right side of your head.

 

Step 4: Continue this until you reach the nape of your neck. Once there, complete the side braid all the way down to the tip of your hair. Tie with an elastic and pull on the braid slightly to loosen the strands.

 

Step 5: Spray with Pantene Pro-V Stylers Touchable Hairspray and you’re done! You’ll be sure to win sponsors everywhere you go with this look. May the odds be ever in your favor!
