Four Game of Thrones-inspired hairstyles to try for your next screening party
Say ‘not today’ to your basic messy bun

As the kingdoms of Westeros come together in the last season of the Game of Thrones, we look back on the hairstyles that had us obsessed. Since the show aired in 2011, one thing that has really stood out is the detailing. From the plot to the hair of the characters, everything has more to it than meets the eye. Did you know, for instance, that the hairstyle of the character is more often than not, in sync with their allegiances?
Now in its final season, we take a look at our favourite character hair moments from the show and how you can recreate them at home:
The Sansa Stark
Back in season one, naïve and innocent Lady Sansa Stark of Winterfell, often wore her hair open with elegant, neat braids. This hair-pulled-away-from-your-face look is perfect for your next Sunday brunch.
The Daenerys Targaryen
Daenerys Targaryen established somewhere in the first season that braids and hair twists were her thing, and her intricate hairdos in the coming seasons did not disappoint. These side hair twists are easy to recreate, you need just a few basic things you’ll find at home, and the tiniest bit of patience. Wear this to the beach or brunch or even to a sangeet function.
If you’ve mastered the twisted rope ‘do, it’s time to move on to the Cersei’s multi-twisted braid style. These twists take some serious wrist work, we won’t lie, but it looks, in two words, ‘Queen Regent’-ly. Wear this half up look to a wedding (add some fresh, tiny flowers) or on a date.
The Arya Stark
Even though she’s had multiple hairdos since season one, Arya Stark’s braids have hardly made a reappearance. Channel your inner Arya with this tweaked braided bun hairdo, it’s easy to imitate (thanks to the hidden elastic!). Wear this versatile hairdo to a lunch date or even to college, if you have five minutes to kill (because that’s literally how long it takes to recreate).
