Katniss Everdeen Hairspiration

Hunger Games has undoubtedly been one of our favourite film series of all time – predominantly because of the fantastic hairstyles! Linking in with the final film release, we’ve pulled together pics of our favourite Katniss Everdeen braids. Prepare yourself for a whole lot of fishtails…

She’s daring and determined, and if that’s not enough Hunger Games’ leading character Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence) sure knows how to rock some epic braids too.

The complexity of her hair looks do vary quite dramatically, depending on if she’s running for her life in the jungle, or attending a fancy party at the President’s palace. Either way, there is always a braid or two thrown into the mix.


One of our all-time favourite Katniss styles has to be her side-parting and French braid combo – it really does make a classic three-strand plait look oh-so-dull! This hairstyle is particularly suited to girls with long hair as the braid can sweep around the back of your head and then over your shoulder. If you are seeking a little extra length then our pre-bonded hair extensions in classic base shades are the ultimate option. They can be washed, brushed and styled just like you’re on hair, making them easy to maintain.


Another great braided style is a classic french braid that is pulled around the front of the head. This look is super easy to achieve, but if you are seeking a little guidance you can check out our how-to video guide.

Don’t forget to send us photos of your Katniss inspired styles on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
