Everyone loves a good braid and everyone loves Game of Thrones, so what better style to bring you in our latest Get the Look than that of Daenerys Targaryen from the award-winning tv show.

Hayley Gibson-Forbes, Co-Director, S J Forbes, is the hands (and brain) behind the look and we absolutely love it. It’s a great style particular now the wind and rain have arrived, but it’s also perfect for a night out! Although you might need an extra pair of hands and some patience.

Step 5-8 – Start at one of the top sections and Dutch plait the hair backwards to the crown, pulling the hair tight to the head. When you reach the crown continue to plait, without picking up any extra hair. Repeat this on the other 3 sections and secure each plait with a clear band.
