Who can forget the red-headed Lady of Winterfell? To re-create Sansa’s signature fiery hair color and style, see the following step by step.

COLOR

  1. To create the signature Stark red, use back to back semi-permanent color, mixing half O&M CØR.color 6.34 Dark Golden Copper Blonde and O&M CØR.color 6.0 Dark Blonde. Mix in one part color and two part activator to color fusion.
  2. Use O&M CØR.restore Treatment, an Amino Acid based treatment that will strengthen and rebuild hair while layering semi-colors.
  3. Cleanse the hair with O&M Original Detox Shampoo, cleanse again with O&M Fine Intellect Shampoo followed by O&M Fine Intellect Conditioner. This won’t weigh the hair down.

STYLE

  1. Start with spritzing O&M Know Knott Detangling Spray through damp hair, comb through and dry until about 80% of moisture is removed.
  2. Next, layer on some O&M Atonic Hair Thickening Spritz for texture and heat protection. Continue to dry hair completely, smoothing with the O&M Volume Curve Hair Brush.
  3. Take a small section of hair and wrap into a small bun on the crown, then secure with bobby pins.
  4. Take inch-wide sections from around the face, using a back comb technique and spray with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray for support.
  5. Wrap around the center bun. This will build up the bun and create texture through hair.
  6. Apply O&M Style Guru Styling Cream onto the last 4 sections of hair and twist them (instead of three strands for a braid, two for a twist) O&M Style Guru Styling Cream will give some hold and a smooth finish.
  7. Wrap two around the bun and let them fall to each side of the head. Spray with O&M Original Queenie Firm Hold Hair Spray to set bun.

Arya Stark

Arya may be a small lady but make no mistake, she is tough as nails! Here’s how to achieve her cute but fierce style.

COLOR

  1. Apply Oway Hcolor 6.01 Ash Natural Dark Blonde from roots to ends with Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer at a 1:1 1/2 ratio. Process for 35 mins.    
  2. Use Oway Hbalance Post-Color Neutralizing Shampoo to remove all traces of color from the hair and restore the hair to the proper pH.
  3. Finish with Oway Hbalance Post-Color pH Mask to seal the cuticle.

STYLE

  1. Spray in Oway Thermal Stress Protector prior to blow dry. Create a straight and sleek look.
  2. Work a small amount of the Oway Precious Wax to create a strong center part from the forehead to the nape of the neck.

4. Apply Oway Sculpting Mist to secure any flyaways and mist with Oway Glamshine Cloud to finish the look.

Cersei Lannister

Cersei is known for her sinister character and this hairstyle embodies her wicked but confident qualities. It’s easy to achieve and here’s how:

COLOR

  1. For this cool beige look, we used O&M CØR.color 6.13 Cool Beige Dark Blonde and O&M CØR.color 20 vol Activator from roots to ends. Mix in O&M CØR.restore Treatment and process for 30 mins.
  2. Rinse and apply step two of O&M CØR.restore Treatment.  
  3. Shampoo, condition and dry hair. Mix O&M Paint Powder Clay Lightener and O&M CØR.color 30 vol Activator and paint hair to achieve texture. Paint Powder is a thick paste allowing us to illustrate hair high and low light total differences. Process this up to 50 mins or until the desired amount of lift has been achieved.
  4. Rinse and treat using O&M The Power Base Protein Treatment which is perfect for adding strength and keeping hair soft.

STYLE

  1. Use O&M Know Knott  Detangling Spray and O&M Frizzy Logic Shine Serum in damp hair and remove 80% moisture.
  2. Using O&M Style Guru Styling Cream run through the hair and blow out with a paddle brush pushing all of the hair forward.
  3. Continue this to finish the fringe and wrap from side to side while drying.
  4. Work O&M K-Gravel Texture Clay onto fingertips and run through roots for lift and ends to give hair that piecey texture.

Daenerys Targaryen

Apart from her soft, unsullied beauty, the Mother of Dragons is well known for her long, icy blonde hair. Here’s how to achieve the dragon queen’s platinum locks without compromising the health of the hair.

COLOR

  1. Decolorize with Oway Hbleach Butter Cream Lightener and Oway Hcatalyst 30 Volume Cream Developer or Oway Hcatalyst 40 Volume Cream Developer.  Decolorize until a pale yellow/white result. Color should be at least a Level 9.  
  2. Shampoo with Oway Hbalance Post-Color Neutralizing Shampoo and run Oway Hmilk No Stress Conditioning Treatment through the hair to equalize porosity.  
  3. Lastly, tone with Oway Hcolor 11.17 Frosted Platinum and Oway Htone 9 Volume Cream Developer for 10 to 20 minutes. This will neutralize any remaining yellow tones.
  4. Follow up again with Oway Hbalance Post-Color Neutralizing Shampoo, to cleanse all of the remaining toner left in the hair.
  5. Finish with Oway Hbalance Post-Color pH Mask to seal the cuticle.

STYLE

  1. Apply Oway Curly Potion from roots to ends and blow dry the hair opposite of the growth pattern to create a lot of volume.  
  2. Curl the mid shaft and ends and pin the curl with a bobby pin to give the curl time to cool and set. Spray with Oway Sculpting Mist.  
  3. Unpin the curls and run fingers through the hair to loosen up the curl and give a tousled look.  
  4. Take a halo parting from temple to temple through the fringe and split in half. Use some Oway Boho Pomade and work through that front section, pulling back and away from the face. Do this by taking the two seperate pieces and twisting them away from the facial area.
  5. Secure in the back of the head at the occipital area.
  6. Lock the style with Oway Sculpting Mist and finish with a light dusting of Oway Glam Shine Cloud.

STYLE:

  1. Cocktail Oway Flux Potion and Oway Curly Potion. Work in mixture from roots to ends.
  2. Blow dry with the head in an upside down position to create fullness in the root area.  
  3. Tousle dry the rest of the hair and set in hot rollers. Let the curls cool and set.

  6. Spitz in some of the Oway Sea Salt Spray to the hair before using a back-comb technique, in the very front and secure into the Chignon. 
  7. Lightly spray all over with Oway Sculpting Mist to lock in the style. Finish with a light dusting of Oway Glamshine Cloud.
