    The Tributes

    Katniss wasn't the only character who's hairstyle was created by necessity. The other 11 female tributes got the same function-over-fashion treatment from Flowers. "There was no loose, flowing hair," she says. "You wouldn't wear that kind of hair to a gym, so why would you wear it like that in the arena or in the practices? You'd have it contained."

    Still, she made sure to keep the girls, including Clove and Glimmer, memorable. "I tried to make each one look individual. I think it comes across well."
