GAME OF THRONES: Daenerys Targaryen's Braided Hairstyle

by Lauren Salapatek | June 13, 2014

The Game of Thrones season 4 finale is just days away, and to celebrate the season, what better way than with a how-to of one of our favorite characters, Daenerys Targaryen (character played by Emilia Clarke). Butterfly Studio Salon stylist Jason Dougherty gives his expert step-by-step guide on how to create one of Daenerys’ fabulous braided looks:

GAME OF THRONES: Daenerys Targaryen's Braided Hairstyle

STEP 1: Split hair down the middle and part out a section around the temple of the head to be used for this top braid. 

STEP 2: Place a light gel or serum on the crown for shine. 

STEP 3: Then create an inverted braid along the head on both sides and connect in the back. 

STEP 4: Prep the remaining hair with Oribe's Dry Texture Spray.

STEP 5: Start a Waterfall Braid along the head on both sides and connect with the first braid.  

STEP 6: Finally, use a curling wand to curl the hair.

STEP 7: Use your hands and a comb to backcomb the hair for this textured messy look. Place an ornate necklace as a headpiece for an added touch.
