5 Hair Trends We Love From “Game Of Thrones”

Emilia Clarke in "Game of Thrones"

While Maisie Williams had to commit to not washing her hair for the early seasons, her sister Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) and the beautiful Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) boasted stunning dos fit for princesses.

Here are some of the hair trends we picked up from on the show.

Platinum Is Timeless

Platinum hair is always coming into fashion thanks to pop stars like Lady Gaga and Sia. Daenerys proves that the look is timeless and is instantly recognizable with her stunning white hair.


Short Hair Is Badass

Ok, we knew this already but all of the ladies of Game of Thrones have lush long locks and we started to get jealous. When Cersei gets hair cut short, we were devastated, until we realize that it looks totally badass and suits her character perfectly.

The Power Of Natural Hair

In Season 5, Sansa Stark dyes her hair dark brown. Although she looks fierce and a change is fun, her red hair is part of her character and when she goes back to her natural color, she gains the power of self acceptance.

Braids, Braids, Braids

All of the women on the show have braids some of the time, but the Mother of Dragons always has the fiercest and most gorgeous braids.

Natural Afro 

Straightening afro-textured hair can be hard work, and although it can be fun to mix things up, Missandei is one of the most beautiful and loyal characters on the show and champions her gorgeous natural hair.
