While the kingdom falls to chaos, there’s a girl on the road to be the queen and we’re definitely all about that. Daenerys of House Targaryen may not wear her colours on her sleeve, but we’re happy to salute them — a colourstory of fire and blood, and unexpectedly sharp.
They could easily rename Game of Thrones to Game of Hair. So many of the women on that show have such glorious long hair and fabulous hairstyles so it’s only natural to want to look to them for inspiration.
Today’s tutorial is inspired by the hairstyle that Daenery’s Targaryen wore for the majority of Season Three. A friend of mine who is also the model in these pictures needed a braided hairstyle to go along with one of her costumes and this seemed perfect for the job. You might recognize her as Heather of Zhobot. ;)
(The easiest way to make your hair look more like Dany’s, you’ll want to do a Dutch braid which means you braid under instead of braiding over. And to have pretty thick hair.)
You don’t need much to do this hair style: just two elastics, a brush, possibly a comb, and some bobby pins to help you divide out the sections
And that’s it! This is definitely one of those hairstyles that takes a bit of practice and that you will probably find a way to modify or tweak it depending upon your hair. Again, if you’d like to make this more like Dany, braid under instead of over, don’t braid down the top sections, and don’t combine the two sections. However, she does change up how she wears the style from time to time so feel free to play!
As always, if you have any questions or want to share pictures of your own attempts at the style, feel free to comment or poke us via social media!
