[Hair Tutorial] Melisandre from Game of Thrones


Recently, I had some kind of unfortunate accident happen to me at the hair salon: my beloved hair has been dyed a dark red/ burgundy color. At first I was frantic, seeing that my hair was dark and full of terrors, but after I came to terms with it, I decided to take on Melisandre’s half-up hairstyle. Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures during the process on the first try, but I made up for that when I did the style again for a festival (for which I dyed my hair in a brighter, more vibrant color. I liked that one a lot more 🙂 ) It was kind of windy that day, so please excuse the mess 😀

Anyway, this is an easy one, so let’s get going:

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:

Final Fantasy X hair – Lulu

Lulu Titel

Today I want to show you how to achieve the hairstyle of the wonderful black mage Lulu from Final Fantasy X. Her hair is really long and thick, so if you’re doing this for cosplay you might want to use a wig or at least hairpieces. Since I was just doing it for fun, I used my natural hair and a few tricks to make the bun look larger. When using hairpieces the sock bun steps might not be neccessary, but the general anatomy of the hairstyle is still applicable. Anyways, this is how it’s done:

Final Fantasy Hair: Aerith Gainsbourough

Aerith Titel-002

One of the most frequently cosplayed characters from Final Fantasy VII is probably Aerith (or Aeris), the flower girl. Her hairstyle is really simple, but for most people impossible to achieve, because she has incredibely long and thick hair. So I suggest that everyone, who is looking this up for a cosplay and doesn’t have Aerith’s superhuman hair, should get a wig and/ or some clip-in extensions to thicken the hair. This braid really takes away alot of length, expecially if you want it to be thick and therefore braid it very tightly. If you braid loosely, like I did in the picture, it will become a little longer, but less voluminous and durable.

The style itself is called a rope braid. It is really easy to achieve and a nice everyday hairdo. Without further ado, this is how it’s done:
