Mastering the Katniss Braid

Katniss' hairstyle was one of the most requested tutorial when Hunger Game became popular. I saw several interpretation of the hairstyle by different hairstylist but the best one are the two below. The first one is easiest and the second one is probably the closest to Katniss' original hairstyle.

Version One (without twists)

Grab a section of hair near the left side of your ear. Then split it into three sections.
Begin Dutch braiding. Slip section 1 under section 2, but over section 3.
Continue braiding until your reach the nape.
Then finish off the rest of the hair with a pigtail (a basic 3-strand braid).
Bring the braid to the front and there you have it! The simplified Katniss braid.

Version Two

Kayley prepped her hair with a few curls to create texture. You can skip this step if you already natural waves. In this versions, instead of regular Dutch braid, you add in a subtle twist as you braid. You'll have to see the video above for a clear demonstration.

@Animaniafreak A normal 3 strand braid, the braid is made with 3-strands within the section. A dutch braid, is made with 3-strands by taking hair from the outside section and combining it to the base section.
kind of, it's just hard when I tried to practice in real life, I didn't know how to incorporate the other strand from other sections :/ I'm gonna search the all-knowing-YouTube for it, thanks for the intro, I'd still be clueless if it weren't for your tutorials, keep up the good work :)
@Animaniafreak I hope it made sense. :D
How's the Dutch braid differs from a normal 3 strands braid?

How To Handle Your Mints Like Jennifer Lawrence
The moment of realization. PopSugar hilariously collected these priceless gifs of Jennifer Lawrence at her press conference in Madrid during her world tour promoting the Hunger Games Catching Fire Part 1. The three stars of the famous film are known to be extremely close so it's even funnier to see their interactions after Lawrence spills mints all over herself. Below, I've created a slight narrative of the feelings many of us would feel in this kind of situation. "Oh crap. Seriously, how could this possibly happen to me? Okay, act natural. No one will notice. Maybe if I just sink into a my chair I can carefully get the mints to casually roll onto the floor. Crap! I just hit his arm. DON'T LOOK. DON'T. STOP LOOKING. OH. MY. GOD. My life is over. I'm done. I need to leave. But I can't get up they're all over me. Did someone notice? Did they see me spill? Maybe I still have an opportunity to escape. LOL at my life." Awkward look of defeat when your BFF notices. "Yep, this looks bad. No I don't need to hear your snarky comments and sass sir. Okay one of the mints somehow managed to fall into my shoe. Why is this even a real thing? Who literally packages these mints? I'm suing for emotional distress. Okay well now they both know and now they're laughing and now everyone's staring at me. COOL GUYS." The "Don't laugh at me!" face. "That's fine. Everything's fine. Don't give me that Josh! I am not embarrassing. I am a classy young movie star and even though this will be all over the internet tomorrow, it's fine. No really, it's totally fine. I didn't really care to have a mint anyway. I mean, I'm facing the people so I don't need to breathe in their face. Josh stop acting like I'm embarrassing you because I ALREADY KNOW I AM." Be generous and make the best of the situation. This interaction probably went something like, "Josh, would you like one?" Admit defeat. "Well at this point everyone knows now. Of course Josh is telling everyone next to him. So typical. Liam you just keeping making jokes as I pick these off my thousand dollar dress. My designer is going to be so pissed. I'll have to explain this to my publicist. It was ultimately the packaging's fault, right? I had the mints in my hand and now they're everywhere but whatever. Josh stop making explosion hand gestures or I will throw these at you." Pay it forward. "Okay, all done. Here, these are for you Liam. xoxo"

Jennifer Lawrence is Stellar in Latest Joy Trailer
I think we all knew/know that Jennifer Lawrence is an amazing actress. And I don't think any of us forgot this fact but we're definitely reminded in the latest trailer for David O. Russell's Joy. In the trailer, it's clear to see that her performance as the titular Joy is one that many of us will remember for a long time. There are a lot of moments in the trailer where Lawrence shines but the moments that stick out to me the most are at the beginning and the end of the trailer. At the start of it, we get her voice over and since the movie isn't out yet, we're unsure if she's addressing the audience or someone within the realm of the film. Either way, thought, it doesn't really matter. The way she deliver each line sends shivers up my spine. And it's especially moving because in this early portion of the trailer we don't see her face or her body movements. She shows us how much power and skill she has as an actress even when she's not physically on screen. The ending of the trailer, however, puts both of these things together for one of the more tense moments of the trailer. She talks slow and deliberate as Russell moves the camera in closer. And we can see the Robert De Niro on the right side of the frame acting passively; making Lawrence's performance even stronger. She doesn't break eye contact with the person she's speaking to and her words hit like bricks against skulls. To be honest, I felt terrified of the character Lawrence was playing. It made me want to see the movie more than I already do. Joy will be in theaters on Christmas this year.
