Styling Your Hair the Game of Thrones Way

The hairstyles of Game of Thrones are serious business. Arya’s bob helps her disguise herself as a boy—at least for a little while. Sansa is able to quietly signal her shifts in loyalty and blend in at King’s Landing by mimicking the styles of more secure ladies, until she finally starts borrowing tips from Margaery Tyrell. Cersei’s piles of braids verge on the ridiculous, but serve as a constant trend-setting crown, while Dany’s simple style (seen here) keeps her hair out of her eyes so she can espy all of the lands and peoples she will conquer.
