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.
