Game of Thrones: Arya Stark Hair Tutorial

arya title 1

Besides being an awesome show, Game of Thrones provides us with lots of great hairstyles on nearly every female character. So today I want to show you how Arya’s hairstyle, which she wears in King’s Landing during her dancing training with Syrio Forel, is done. Arya is such a great character, and a pretty wild one as well. This is why I chose to make the hairstyle a little bit messy. In general, this is a really easy hairdo, but you will need long hair for this. Mine is a little bit too short to be accurate, but I still like the look, even though a few centimeters are missing.

I took pictures for every step, so I hope the instructions will be easy to follow:

1. Start out by putting your hair into a medium high ponytail. As I said, i like Arya to be messy, so leave a little bit of hair out.


2. Separate your ponytail into two sections.

3. Braid each of these sections into a regular English braid.


4. Take the first braid and pin it in an upwards direction next to the base of your ponytail.

5. Take the second braid and lay it across the first braid, again in an upwards direction. Secure with bobby pins.Arya 56. Cross the braids again, this time below the base of your ponytail.

Arya 68. Secure the bun with bobby pins. Stick it with the pointy end. 😉

Arya 79. The bun should now look like the following pictures. Otherwise, adjust the hanging ends using bobby pins.

    • In 5 you cross the braids for the first time above the base of your ponytail and secure them. In 6 you continue the movement of the braids in their counterwise directions, that means they will cross again below the base, where they need to be pinned again. The picture below point 6 is indicating the direction in which the braids are going when they’re crossing for the second time.

      Does that help you?
