DIY Katniss Everdeen Braid

Hello DIYers! In honor of the upcoming "The Hunger Games" movie, Mockingjay Part 2, coming out this month, today's DIY post is a DIY Katniss Everdeen Braid. This famous braid is sooo easy to do that I thought I should share it with all of you!

What you'll need:
1. An elastic

Steps:
#1. Take a chunk of hair, as little or big as you want
#2. Split into three smaller chunks (1,2,3)


#3. Take chunk 1 and pull it under chunk 2.


#4. Then take chunk 3 and bring it under chunk 1.


#5. Add some hair into chunk 2.


#6. Once you added the hair, you are going to then take group 2 and bring it under group 3.


#7. You are going to add Hair into group 1. Add in hair to the group that is being held between her fingers. Then Bring that under the braid.


#8. Keep adding hair into each group like you would for a french braid. Pull the groups under the braid and then over. You are basically reversing a french braid.


#9. Continue this pattern all the way down your hair.


#10. Tie off your Katniss braid with an elastic/hairtie.

You're done! I hope you enjoyed this DIY! MAKE SURE TO WATCH MOCKINGJAY ON NOVEMBER 20TH!
