The main impetus for keeping the look true to the book was because it made the most sense. "For her character, it was the most functional style she could have," Flowers says. "The braid is designed to stay very tight around her neck so that she reached back for an arrow in her quiver, it wouldn't get caught." To get the look, she styled the hair by starting from the left of the ear and did a reverse French braid, where the braid's on top. Then, she looped it all the way around, cupping her nape as it emerges on the right. "It really hugs her head, giving her maximum control."
