Popular on Pinterest: 'Game of Thrones' Khaleesi-Inspired Braids

We don't know about you, but the Mother of Dragons is giving us major braid envy.

With the sixth season premiere of Game of Thrones nearly upon us, we couldn't help but flock to Pinterest for style inspiration from none other than the stunning GoT ladies themselves. But since we all know who I'm gunning for to win the actual "Game of Thrones" (and because I've been obsessed with her white-hot platinum tresses ever since the show started), I'm going to have to go with Khaleesi's royal steez here.

She's the Mother of Dragons, the Queen of Meereen, the fearless freer of slaves, and she's got legendary Targaryen blood. Plus, she's a feminist. And let's not forget that Daenerys pretty much slays the hair game. Always. So whether you want to finesse those Pinterest braiding skills or you're just deeply inspired by Khaleesi's entire existence – hey, no shame in that game – give these Game of Thrones-inspired braided hairstyles a try.
