You know we couldn't let this week pass without giving you a Hunger Games how-to. With tonight's sure-to-be-insane midnight premiere of the seminal movie of our time (okay, maybe not, but it's definitely going to be a kick-ass film), we knew it was finally time to tackle "the braid."
In addition to being a fictional heroine we can actually get behind, Katniss Everdeen also rocks a pretty sick hairstyle. In the books, her 'do has a big part, with Katniss' beauty prep team obsessing over it. After seeing the style brought to life in the posters and previews, we have to agree — that braid is dope. Equal parts sporty, functional, and beautiful, it's her swooping braid — not Peeta or Gale — that has us swooning.
