I went to Africa and came back to discover that Hunger Games hair fun was in full swing. Over at Adopt a Do, Mindy had copied the hair that Primrose Everdeen wore at the Reaping and it is such a cute and simple girls hairstyle I was totally into copying it. I also saw the movie this weekend (am I the only person who cried in the Reaping scene?) so doing up the Prim Everdeen hair felt, well, hungerfan right…
The style is very simple. It’s just a French braid pulled close to the ears and started right near the front of the head. It is also a very tough style. Squidge went to school looking like she does in these pics, and came back with it looking exactly the same. Colour me impressed! It was also a five minute job, unlike some of the twists I’ve tried this week. I really do need to find out if there is a trick to hair twists because ours never work as well as they should.
So, here you go, the Primrose Everdeen hairdo, enjoy!

This style is a copy of that fabby hairdo sported by Jasmine throughout the first Disney Aladdin movie. You know, the one where Robin Williams plays the genie to perfection. Well, he certainly had me weeping with laughter! It is also very easy to do but you will need at least shoulder length hair with most of it long enough to slip into a low pony at the back.
For our version of Aladdin hair, as Squidge calls it, we used a low pony but it looks just as cute if you have it done in a high one. To do this style, I suggest going with damp hair, especially if your little one’s hair is curly, as it makes it that little bit easier to work with. You can see a tutorial from Adopt A Do here.

Have you read The Hunger Games yet? Oh man, if you enjoy a fast paced, sci-fi-esque read, then this book should be in your paws right now. I didn’t want to read it, I thought it was too close to Battle Royale for it to be original, but I ended up eating my socks. Similar idea, completely different implementation with superb imagery.
So, for our first Little Diva post, we decided (Squidge and I) to do the hairstyle from the Hunger Games. I cannot claim credit for this, though. I have become a faithful follower of Adopt A Do and love this woman’s incredible talent. None of our hairstyles match hers but Squidge and I keep trying, one day ours will look as good!
We decided that we are going to try and do a funky, crazy, exciting hairstyle every school day for a year. Sometimes they will be repeated so we won’t show those, we will just show off the hairstyles that made it onto the school yard.
Our Katniss braid went the wrong way...
Some will come with instructions specifically suited to Squidge’s curly, fine hair. Others will simply direct you to the place where I was guided, expertly, by these amazing mums who create cute hairstyles for girls…
This particular hairstyle works really well with curly hair but I do advise you to spray it with a bit of water or detangler first. I use the Vosene detangler as it comes with built-in anti-nit stuff and it is really, really good at its job.
