Daenerys Targaryen Inspired Hair Tutorial



If you’re like me you probably spend half of every episode of Game of Thrones quietly gushing about how great Daenerys is and how she’s a strong independent Khaleesi who don’t need no slaves. Most of the time it’s because she’s busy being incredible, but some of the time it’s simply because her hair is busy being incredible. She’s a braid lovers dream, and I don’t know anyone with longer hair who isn’t constantly looking for new ways to put it back. Dany is my go to when I run out of ideas for how to keep my hair out of my face, and this style surprisingly practical (making it through many long and active days as a babysitter) and easy (If you can braid your own hair, you can probably finish this style in 10-ish minutes). As an added bonus it makes it look like you have a dozen handmaidens to braid your hair for you in the morning, and seriously who doesn’t want that.



For bonus points, dress up your dragons with matching bow collars. Let me know in the comments if you’ve made yourself Khaleesitastic (it’s a word if I say it’s a word).

  1. I love this. I live in (very warm) Hawaii with long, thick hair and I’m constantly looking for a good way to keep my hair back that isn’t my normal ponytail or bun. This is gorgeous and simple to do. Thank you!

    • I know what you mean, I have long thick hair too and I don’t want to cut my hair to get these cute hairstyles.

      • I’m so glad you both liked the tutorial! I know what you mean, I really love my hair but I feel like I’m always just putting it in a bun. Thankfully I have Daenerys for inspiration now.

  2. this is awesome! i love GOT and especially Dany (she is so pretty!!!!) thanks!!

  3. Oh my, I loved this tutorial! I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, and I’ve been looking for a tutorial easy enough, and I finally found it! Thank you. 🙂
