Okay, okay, okay. If you follow me over on the twitter than you know that I'm a big fan of Game of Thrones. I didn't choose this life, it chose me. Thanks to my Star Wars fanboy father, I'm sort of predisposed to be into "nerdy" things. (For the record, I don't think that there is anything nerdy abut Game of Thrones but still all of my friends make fun of me for being so into it. Sigh.) This particular 'do is inspired by Daenerys. This is by no means the first time anyone has ever worn her hair like this but who cares? I thought it was cute. (And also very easy.)

Because this 'do involves twisting the hair, it's best done on second or third day hair. If not though, no need to fret. Just run some texture pomade through it and you should be set. I curled the bottoms of my hair because I think it adds a nice touch but you can do this style with straight or curly hair also.

Begin by taking and twisting a section of hair at the temple. I'm still trying to grow my bangs out so I just twisted them into the section of hair but you can leave your bangs out as well! The section should be about the size of a dime at the top and it'll probably get thinner as you twist it down. Clip it aside and grab another section, same size. Repeat the twist. Once you have two sections twisted separately, begin to twist them together, keeping the individual strands tight as you go. It should look like a rope. Repeat on the other side and fasten in the back with a medium claw clip.

There ya go! Simple yet elegant. I'll be rockin' this look a LOT this summer.

Hope you all have a great weekend! Between normal Philly shenanigans and a trip to New York, I should have a ton of pictures for you all on Monday! MWAH!

xo,

  1. damn, that's so lovely! Love the pink too. How did you get your bangs to part so nicely down the middle. I always have such a hard time with that :(

    1. lots and lots and LOTS of patience. I let my hair air-dry before I style it and I've been clipping them in place while they dry. For the first couple of weeks I'd clip them all the time, you gotta kinda FORCE your part to behave.
