[Instahair]5 hairstyles inspired by Game of Thrones

With their long braided hair and elaborate hairstyles, the characters from the series Game of Thrones have much to inspire us. Copy your favourite character with these 5 original styling ideas spotted on Instagram.

The Daenerys Targaryen half-up half-down hairstyle

Ice blond and wavy locks decorated with a few braids: fall in love with the Mother of Dragons’ hairstyle!

To create this look, gather your hair towards the back using a hairbrush and select two large strands from either side of your face, level with the temples. Braid each of the sections to form four braids and stop plaiting before you reach the ends. Hold them in place with transparent hairbands. Then curl the rest of your hair with curling tongs to create pretty waves. All that’s left for you to do now is hold the braids back using flat hairpins. A top tip? Cross them over to make sure that the hairstyle holds.

Sansa Stark’s braid

Elegant and resourceful, Sansa exudes femininity but turns out to be surprisingly strong. She’s a more complex character than meets the eye, just like her hairstyles!

To get this pretty two-part braid, separate your hair into three sections, keeping the largest section of hair in the centre. First, do a central inverted braid (created by crossing the middle strand underneath as opposed to over the top of the others) and stop braiding when you reach the nape of the neck. Then do a simple three-strand braid on either side, tightening them as you go. Again, stop braiding when you reach the nape of the neck. As a finishing touch, combine all of the remaining hair into one fishtail braid and loosen it slightly to create a de-styled effect.
