TV Show Inspired Hair

Wednesday, 22 April 2015  | 

On the Merritts blog today we look at some of the most recent iconic on-screen hairstyles starting with Game of Thrones' Daenerys.

 

Daenerys Targaryen

The much loved Game of Thrones character Daenerys (played by actress Emilia Clarke) has been the source of much hair envy ever since since season 1 of the hit show.

 

The long and beautiful braided locks in a waterfall style not only stand out for their intricate form but also the platinum blonde colour.

 

Our in house stylist Abbey re-created Daenerys look this week for a very happy customer. ( See image above).

 

Although this is quite an intricate look it is possible to recreate it at home, as long as you have a little spare time and some patience!

 

Joan Holloway

The iconic Mad Men character played by Christina Hendricks has one of the most stand out hairstyles in recent TV history.

 

Although Christina has recently admitted she wanted to play with the characters hairstyle more during the filming of show, we have to say we're kind of glad she didn't get her way.

 

The star who has recently turned blonde in real life now Mad Men has aired its final series, said she wanted to move away from the characters iconic updo and try a longer hairstyle and even asked if she could turn Joan blonde.

 

However there is no getting away from the fact that Joan's stunning red colour and 60's inspired style was one of the stand out looks from the popular show.

 

The look is relatively simple to create at home using a good hair brush and a high quality hairspray to hold the hair in place.

 

Jada Pinkett Smith

Starring as a mob boss in Gotham, one of the most popular new TV series to launch last year, Jada's pixie crop with red streaks is a fearsome and powerful look.

 

Bearing in mind that the pixie has been one of the most popular cuts of recent seasons it's easy to see why many fans have fallen in love with this look. While not all of us could get away with the dramatic red colour for work, the cut is still good enough to consider on its own.

 

A flexible pixie cut like Jada's is perfect in the boardroom and easy to style for sports or a night out.

 

The key to styling this cut is to go for a product that can add texture like a lightweight wax or pomade.
