When I posted our style Double 1-Sided Braids back at the beginning of the month, someone commented how they thought it looked very much like something from Game of Thrones. Since we don’t have cable, I’ve never watched the show, but know they’ve got some awesome hair going on! Fast forward to a week ago when I took the girls to a local “jump house” to play for the afternoon. Since I jumped with them the last time, I wasn’t in the mood to jump so I headed to the parents lounge where I thumbed through their magazines. In the stack were a few copies of Entertainment Weekly from March. These ones to be exact:
Goose happened to have left over waves from a French braid and so the other day we did a quick copy-cat version of Queen Cersei’s hair from the cover of Entertainment Weekly. Although in the photo shoot it never showed the back of Cersei’s hair, one can assume it was just simply pulled back! Despite Goose’s waves being a bit more than Cersei has, it was very simple & very pretty. I guess it’s sort of a cross between Cersei’s and Daenerys styles from the covers of EW! Not hard, but very pretty.
Step 1 – Make waves
Whether your hair is naturally wavy, you use a 3 barrel curling iron, or you get waves from left over braids, it helps add extra prettiness to the style I think!
Step 2 – Part hair down the middle
Step 3 – Part out small section of hair
On the left side of the head by the temple, gently part out a small section of hair. Try not to part out anything exact you can just do it with your fingers – this should have a soft feel to it.
Step 4 – Make a rope/twist braid
If you don’t know how, watch our rope/twist braid video!
Step 5 – Temporarily secure rope/twist braid
Step 6 – Repeat on the right side of the head.
Step 7 – Join twists
Bring them together in the middle and secure with a rubber band.
And Goose got new glasses & she didn’t like having them off any more during pictures, so one more pic to make her look …. like her!
Although this is a very simple style, I love hair from this time period, so it looks like I might need to catch me some Game of Thrones somehow! 🙂
