The Hairstyles of Game of Thrones

23 Aug


If you’ve watched the HBO show Game of Thrones, you’ll know that braids transcend gender and class, most notably sported by fearsome Dothraki warriors who only cut their braids when they lose a battle. Everyone wears them — from the wildlings north of the wall to the ladies of the court in King’s Landing.

Thanks to a great gallery put together by the folks over at The Cut, we can now take a closer look at the intricate hairstyles of the cast. Here are some of my favourites.


My, Cersei, what a big head you have. Now we know where Joffrey gets it from.



Catelyn and Talisa coordinate their plaits in a mother/daughter in law kind of way here in these pics. Groovy. Hope things work out for them.



Sansa and Arya’s split braids usually throw ‘stark’ contrast to Dany’s signature pleated do. Eat your heart out, girl.


If you’ve ever wanted to replicate the hairstyles of Westeros, you’re in luck. Sass and Baldurdash have provided some great picture tutorials on how how to get hair fit for a Khaleesi. Who knows? By the time you’ve tried them all, Season 4 might have come out!

    It would take me that long to braid my hair.

      I feel you! My hair’s about as long as yours — but only on one side.
