Jennifer Lawrence Hunger hair tips

Jennifer Lawrence's The Hunger Games tresses were "classic and soft", says the film's hairstylist.

The actress stars as Katniss Everdeen in the upcoming action drama. The film is set in a future where a boy and girl from the 12 districts are selected to fight to the death on live television. Jennifer's character Katniss volunteers to take her younger sister's place for the latest battle.

The Hunger Games' on set hairstylist Linda Flowers says she loved creating Katniss' look towards the end of the film.

"I loved doing Jennifer's - Katniss' hair when she was coming home from the games. She wore a pink dress that looked like it was from the 50s so I used the TopStyler and did figure eights and one finger curls with the c-shells to get a contemporary finger wave style like a 50s old Hollywood look. I believe it portrayed how much she had grown up from the games and came into her own as a young women because it was classic and soft," she told Beauty High.

"And of course Effie - Elizabeth Banks - was really fun, she was sophisticated yet whimsical. How often do you get to put pink and green hair on someone?"

Jennifer wears a braid throughout the most of the film as her character's signature look. Linda has explained how she created the classic hair do.

"Katniss' signature braid took about 20 minutes - I first used the TopStyler by InStyler to create texture in her hair then I did a French braid from her left side scooping down her nape and over to the right side. I tried to create something a little more interesting then just a side braid," she explained.
