GoT Braids are all the Rage

Yes, this is a fashion blog and I’ve been focusing specifically on clothes, but anyone who watches the show simply cannot ignore the masterful hairstyles worn by the Game of Thrones women. This post goes out to the incredible hair team of GoT and, of course, the fantastic actresses who can seriously work any crazy up-do and still look fierce.

Daenerys definitely sparked the braid trend for the rest of the show. Especially when she becomes Khaleesi, the braiding becomes more prevalent and more intricate. Even after she is abandoned by most of the Dothraki clan, she keeps on braiding (as we see in seasons 2 and 3). They turn out to be convenient for keeping her long platinum locks out of her face when enduring the constant change of elements.  I’m also in love with that claw necklace. What an intimidation factor.

The Khaleesi is Grace Kim’s favorite character, and the rest of the GoT nation is probably in agreement. Kim is a student at the University of Florida and majors in public relations.

“She’s my favorite because of how bold she is and how she never takes no for an answer. And probably in real life that would get her killed, but I think it’s pretty cool all of the things she can accomplish,” Kim said.

“I think a lot of her stuff is really pretty because it’s feminine and romantic, but I actually focus more on her hairstyles. I think it’s cool that they incorporate a lot of braids.”

Here are some other famous braided hairstyles from the show:

No need to look sad, Sansa. You look positively darling with this half-up half-down hairstyle.

This severe braided look, popular in King’s Landing, makes Cersei look even more evil. I didn’t think that was possible.

Back before Arya became “Arry”, she could actually have a variety of styles with her longer hair. This braided bun that divides into pig tails gives her a playful look.
Image
The Red Lady Melisandre needs to have hair that matches her signature color. This braided side ponytail hidden partially under her cloak gives her that extra sense of foreboding and mystery.
