We can’t wait to see the ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2,’ which hit theaters on Nov. 20. We did a video beauty tutorial with the movie’s hairstylist — get Katniss’ signature braid below!

Jennifer Lawrence, 25, may have short blonde hair in real life, but in The Hunger Games, her character Katniss wears her long dark hair in a signature braided style. Get the how to on the look with our video tutorial — click to watch!

In Mockingjay — Part 2, Katniss rocks more of a fishtail braid, but in the first two movies, lead hairstylist Linda Flowers came up with a fun, cool way for Katniss to be active while still showing a feminine side.

Here’s the how to:

“Step 1: Begin by creating texture throughout hair (this is the most important step to create a natural, effortless look). I use TopStyler, but simple curling, twisting, and scrunching of the hair will do!

Step 2: Start a reverse braid (folding hair over fingers instead of tucking underneath) above your left ear.

Step 3: Continue braiding and adding hair as you work at a 45 degree angle. This should end below your right ear.

Step 4: Finish braid, securing with an elastic.”
