The Glorious Hairstyles of Game of Thrones

As season 7 looms near, the number of fan theories and predictions on the internet (will Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen really get together?) are also increasing. Before winter arrives, let’s revisit some of the glorious braided styles as seen on a few of our favourite Game of Thrones characters, dead or alive.

(There are spoilers ahead, you have been warned.)

Even though she is of highborn, the Lady of Winterfell does not typically wear her signature red hair in grandiose braids. She is seen here with an elaborate hairstyle on the day of her wedding to Tyrion Lannister with a hair bump fit for the Queen in the North(?).

Although I still hold it against her for getting the naive Stannis Baratheon to burn the lovely Princess Shireen at the stake, the Red Woman’s hair is always on point. Seriously, how does she keep hair of that length free of split ends?! Of course, that could also be attributed to the enigmatic ruby necklace that she wears, although there is much debate over that.

Cersei Lannister

Before her mane was mercilessly cut away for the Walk of Shame, Cersei had golden cascading waves, a defining trait of the Lannisters.

Also, being the Queen of Westeros likely meant that she had a trove of handmaidens to do up her hair on a daily basis. Here she is on Tywin Lannister’s funeral, spotting a braided updo that likely took hours to complete.

With all her smarts and charms, this lady of Highgarden is just as intelligent as she is beautiful. Margaery looks every bit the flower that she is as wears this bridal woven hair look on the fateful day of the purple wedding.

Margaery is often seen in floral dresses with strategic cut outs, her brown curly hair parted down the middle and drawn back in ornate twists. HBO did away with this character too soon, way too soon.

And of course, our favourite Khaleesi! True to her Targaryen roots, Daenerys spots platinum blonde hair and fair skin. For her wedding to Khal Drogo, her hair is drawn back in a simple fashion and held in place with metal beads.

As she grows from the meek, on-the-run slave to her brother Viserys to the breaker of chains and the one and only khaleesi of the Dothraki people, Daenerys started wearing her hair in more elaborate braids almost as badass as she is right now.

Regardless of whichever side you may be rooting for, the Great War is coming to Westeros. Get ready for another season full of glamorous hair and make up that never runs as winter descends upon the seven kingdoms.
