Many of you know that were are HUGE fans of The Hunger Games books and movie franchise! We've been friends with Linda Flowers, the Department Head of Hair & Makeup for both The Hunger Games and Catching Fire ever since we first put up the Katniss braid years ago. Since Linda had a contract for Dancing With The Stars, she was unable to work on the Mockingly movies, with Lionsgate instead hiring Camille Friend. Camille is just as talented, and her team did an amazing job trying to have the hair reflect the mood of the war-trodden State, as in the book.

Katniss' braid in this 3rd movie isn't supposed to be focused so much on style, as her time in the Capitol and in the Games merited. This time around, Panem is at war, with a growing rebellion movement, and the look is supposed to fully reflect that.

Things aren't as they once were, and that's why there is a fundamental change in the Katniss braid.

Katniss still wears a side braid, which as Linda told us is to ensure that she doesn't snag her braid as she removes arrows from the quiver on her back. This time around, the wrapping braids from the left and right are French braids instead of Katniss' signature Dutch braid. For the side braid, the stitching looks very similar to a Simple braid, however it really is a chunky Reverse Fishtail. The look is also supposed to be somewhat messy and disheveled, which is the look we were going for. {The wind and rain in our trailer video shoot certainly helped with that!}
