There are TV shows and then there's A Game of Thrones. The epic show changed the meaning of fashion and beauty on screen. Chances are you've been left awed by the hundreds of hairstyles on GoT. Like Sansa Stark aka Sophie Turner mentioned, her hairstyle hold clues to the plot. And so, we get you the most kickass hairdos sported by your favourite characters. Just so you can play a true blue GoT-nerd next week when Season 7 takes off.

We spoke to TIGI educator Audrey D’Souza to drop the look-book for 3 of the most iconic characters on the show.

“Those easy breezy curls have given serious hair goals for men everywhere, and the look is easily attainable with just a few quick steps,” says Audrey.

  • Shampoo and condition your hair with Bead Head Charge Up shampoo and conditioner, and towel dry.

  • Mix together Bead Head Matte Separation and Pure Texture and, starting from the nape, apply the product by scrunching it into the hair in sections. Make sure you don’t drag your hand through the front of your hair, which will only pull out the curls.

  • Add some extra product to the root in the front. Finally, break up any clumps by twisting the curls into each other.

Daenaerys Targaryen aka Khaleesi:

A Game of Thrones look-book would be incomplete without Khaleesi. “Her practical braided hair is the perfect look for dragon rearing and riding,” Audrey reasons.

  • Blow-dry your hair into soft waves, draw a middle part and spray Bed Head Headrush to add shine and eliminate frizz.

  • Next, section off the top one-fourth of hair, and tie away the rest with an elastic or clip. Create the inside-out French braid (aka Dutch braid) on one side by crossing each section under the centre strand, instead of over. Repeat this inside-out braid on the other side of the head. Once both the braids have been created, connect the two sides together with a clear elastic at the base of the head.

  • Take a section from the bottom of the ponytail, spritz it with the Bed Head Masterpiece hair spray, and comb it through so it's smooth. Then, wrap it around the elastic.

  • Repeat the first 3 steps with the remaining hair. Gather the top section and both bottom braids together, and secure the entire bundle with an elastic about two or three inches down from the first ponytail. Take another small section of hair from underneath the ponytail, spritz on some hair spray, comb it through, and wrap it around the base.

Arya Stark:

The toughest Stark there is, Arya is the embodiment of girl power. Her Princess Leia-inspired mini bun is a trend in making.

  • Wash and condition your hair with Bed Head Epic Volume for super voluminous hair.

  • Apply Bed Head Small Talk with 3-in-1 thickifier, energizer, and stylizer to prep your hair.

  • Separate your hair into a middle parting and create a tight simple braid towards to the top front of your head. Roll your braid into a mini bun and secure using an elastic band. To ensure the bun stays in place, spray in some Bed Head Flexi Head.

Time to usher in the long-awaited winter, no?
