Sansa’s jousting hairstyle


You’ll need:

  • brush, 
  • 3 elastics,
  • 4-6 bobby pins,
  • hair spray (optionally).


First, you have to create a parting in the middle and then separate 3 sections of hair, just like in (1). Grab small section of hair from the largest part, braid and secure it (2). Now comes the most tricky step – (3).  Grab front section of hair and, keeping it close to your scalp, begin to form a circle. Stop when you decide you found appropriate place to begin braiding and pin it right there.  In GoT, Sansa’s braids start quite early:


But when they start later, it also looks quite nice (4). After pinning the section you can use a little hair spray, I’m not a fan but it helps with elegant, not-messy look. After creating a braid, secure it with elastic and start creating a tiny snail-shaped bun. In this post I presented two different options for pinning your ‘snail bun’ – either more in front (like in the series) or more in the back (see 4). When you’re done with the first bun, repeat step 3 for the other side. It’s harder than the first, since symmetry can be real pain in the ass… Done with the other bun? You finished whole hairstyle!
