Daenerys Targaryen Inspired Hairstyle

I was asked to do a tutorial on Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones hairstyle. And since I had a little cutie who wanted this style done on her beautiful THICK long blond hair I decided this would work out beautifully.

This is a fairly simple hairstyle, but I think it deserves having the step-by-step laid out for you. So this is how we accomplished this fun style. My model slept with her hair in braids the night before to accomplish the wavy look this hairstyle needs to look like the original.
Comb through the hair first, but do not get the hair wet unless absolutely necessary. You want to keep the waves in tact for this style. Comb through the hair in order to make the braiding easy. 
Start by pulling the top section of the hair into a very high ponytail that stops at the back of the crown of the head. Start the ponytail at the outside of where the bangs would sit. Its important to keep this ponytail in that area so the rest of the style falls into the correct place. Keep this section nice and loose. This is supposed to be a loose looking, soft hairstyle.
 Your first braid will start at about the temple on the face. Or right above the eyebrow.
You will only be adding hair into the braid on the top side of this braid. DO NOT ADD HAIR FROM THE BOTTOM. Keep the braid loose and let the texture be part of the braid.
Finish in the back and repeat the braid on the other side both meeting up in the middle back of the hair and secure with an elastic.
 Your style should look like this at this point.
Your next braid will begin just above the ear.
You will only be adding hair again from the top while braiding. This will leave your bottom section of your braid defined, but loose.
Repeat on the other side and combine the braids together in the back with a small clear elastic. For this style it really is best to use a clear elastic to keep it very subtle and simple. Your elastic shouldn't dominate this style.
 Your finished style should look like this. See what I mean... the style is pretty simple. Now if only I could figure out how to say that characters name. I've never seen the movies or read the books, but maybe I had better. I've heard great things about this series. What do you think?
Thanks to my beautiful blond model who was absolutely perfect for this hairstyle. It looked so great on her. She has perfect hair for this style. Good luck and don't forget to share your Daenerys Targaryen hairstyles with us on our Facebook and Instagram pages. We love seeing your version of these fun hairstyles.

A Short List of Ten of Our Favorites

Lately both Beans and I have been missing her long hair. This morning I caught her scrolling through some of our old pictures. She told me she was ready to do these fun styles again. We've had so much fun with her short hair and we have a handful more of short hairstyles I really need to get tutorials made up for. But we are both ready to have it long again.

So for today I decided to pull together some of the styles we are missing most. Beans was particularly longing for wearing her hair in buns again. I was leaning more towards the low ponytail hairstyles. Either way we seriously have a lot of great hairstyles. Next week I will pull together some of the short styles into a list like this.

As for a new post... it still needs to wait. But not much longer until I can get back to work. I am having surgery at the end of this month once I finish all my Halloween costumes. LOL, yes that was a huge priority. Then I will hopefully be back to having full use of my hands again.

One we both agree is super cute is our Big Flower Bun.
Big Beautiful Braid Bun makes the top of our list for favorites. I think Beans might miss these bows more than anything.
Beans does tumbling a lot these days and she would love to be wearing this one to the gym this is our Dancers Braid tutorial.
Drag Braid Headband, I have another tutorial that I need to add on to this one, but I don't love presenting a new tutorial on a mannequin. This one is fantastic!
Low Drag Braid into a Ponytail. This one just is one of my all time favorites.
Beans took one look at the Braided Faux-Hawk Beautiful Updo  and would have loved to choose this one for school today. This one really is easy and super fabulous.
Figure Eight Braided Bun would be another good one for the gym.
I chose the Ladder Braid because I love this, but its complex. I know this one hasn't been tried too much... and I wish more people could do this one.
Twisted Bun is just great. And there are so many variations that make this look even more cool that others have posted now. Isn't having all the hair bloggers out there so wonderful?
Double Twists to a Low Ponytail made my list because its a low ponytail. I tell ya... I miss the low ponytail right now. This one is one of my favorites. 

I guess you can call this our Throw-Back-Thursday. Reminiscing over old photo's of when Beans had long hair. We are ready for long hair, but I still have a few more short hair tutorials that I need to share with you. So once I have this surgery I hope it can be back to work for Beans and me. 

Watch for a giveaway also in the next few days. I have just been pulling together a few things to giveaway for our Facebook page getting over 100,000 followers. THANK YOU!!!! 

Fun With Braids

The last few weeks Beans has been asking for micro-braids. Not that these are super micro, but they are super adorable.The first one we accomplished the wavy look with a three prong curling iron. We just clamped it in a few select spots since we didn't want it all wavy. This is Beans current favorite hairstyle. She was considering it for picture day.  And its been a great one for while she is letting her hair grown out.
When Beans went in for surgery on her mouth last week we decided to do this fun braid all the way across the top of her head. This kept the hair out of her way while they did surgery. And it was fantastic for recovery. She liked this one, but not nearly as much as the top hairstyle.
She wants the next time we do this for us to do the side style like in the top photo, but with the "X" worked into the side. I think I can do that for her. Have you tried this style before? Does your little one, or you, totally love this style? It's been a few years since we have done this, but it's coming back into style.

Flash Back--- Double Twist

Beans hair back in 2009. Does it look more blond to you than it does these days? I think her hair has got a little darker since 2009. I saw a hairstyle on an actress that looked just like this the other day and I was reminded of this style. I really love this style. I can't wait until Beans hair is long enough for us to do this one again.

This is also one of our most popular hairstyles here on Girly Do Hairstyles. I see this one all the time Pinned on Pinterest. Have you tried it? Is it one of your favorite styles too? Make sure and check out our tutorial if you don't know how to accomplish this look. You can get to that tutorial through this link. Have an excellent weekend!

Flash Back Friday

Going back to this fun tutorial where we made homemade curlers. I know exactly where these dare. Beans hair may not be long enough to use them right now, but I am thinking I may pull them out for myself. Do you remember when we did this a few years back? Here is the link to our curlers tutorial.
I really do think I might use these on my own hair. Do you want to see how the curls turn out on me?  If so let me know and I will post pictures. Have a great weekend.
