Behold! The most epic Game of Thrones hairstyles. Hair so sassy it'll make you wish you could transport yourself to Westeros just to get in on those braids (except not, because you know you'd probably die). Game of Thrones has some of the most inspiring hair on cable TV: french-style fishtails, dutch braids, plaited buns, twisty half-up, and half-down styles. It's a hair-lovers dream. While some of these styles are actually wigs (Khaleesi, we're looking at you, girl), many can be achieved IRL with basic braids and a lot of bobby pins.

Sure, there are many other reasons why people watch the show: hot women, satisfying character deaths, and those famous uncomfortable Game of Thrones moments... but there is a strong contingent of fans that could watch the whole show on mute just for the hair. If you are one of those people, this list is for you. 

This list features the hairstyles of Margaery, Cersei, and Khaleesi, but it goes beyond the obvious and even brings back some Game of Thrones hair from earlier seasons and lesser-known characters. We've picked the best hairstyles, but if your favorite 'do is missing, leave a note in the comments. Upvote the hairstyles you think are the best.

Whether she’s bragging about breaking in the king or spilling tea about her mother-in-law, Margaery's stunning waves are brought to you by the hardest working curling iron in King's Landing. The waves are woven loosely to sweep back softly from her gorgeous, smirking face.

Margaery's feminine waves disguise her serious hunger for power. She goes for an elegant, half-pulled back look here to pair with her plunging neckline.

Cersei’s Inquiry Braids and Waves

When Cersei wants to appear friendly, she let’s her hair down. She sweeps it up in braids for more formal looks. When she’s on the fence about how she’s going to play things, she goes both ways. Loose front braids flow into an intricate braided bun, offset by loose waves.

When you are in love, you do not have time to get braid crazy. Tight hair shows that the struggle is real so Myrcella doesn't have time for that. Myrcella's look has simple waves with a quick side braid. Just add a flower and your dad/uncle's disapproval for what you're wearing.
