The plot of the hugely popular show
might be unbelievably fantastical but the hairstyles flaunted by the ladies on the show are definitely not.If you’ve always wondered how to get those next-to-perfect braids sported by Khaleesi or the adorable twisted buns that sit atop Sansa’s pretty head, here’s your DIY guide.
1Sansa Stark’s twisted twin buns
Step 1: Part hair from the centre. Take a section of hair just off the crown of your head and start braiding.
Step 2: Twirl the braid to form a bun. Secure with bobby pins. Repeat on the other side.
Step 3: Take a section of hair just above your ear and twist it. Secure it around the bun. Repeat on the other side.
Step 4: Using a tail comb, take a section of hair just below the buns and make a long plait.
2Daenerys Targaryen’s double braids
Since this hairstyle looks great on hair with highlights, we used a coloured extension to add the extra drama.
Step 1: Part hair from the centre. Take a section of hair just off the centre partition and start braiding (use inward braiding as opposed to the conventional outward one).
Step 2: Repeat on the other side. Twirl the two braids and secure with an elastic band.
Step 3: Take another section below the first one and just above your ear, and start braiding. Repeat on the other side. Twirl the two plaits, as well as the single one from the previous step, and secure them with an elastic band.
Step 4: If your hair is straight, use tongs with a wide diameter to create beachy waves.
