With the Season 6 premiere of Game of Thrones airing tonight at 9 p.m. on HBO, we are officially excited for the return of the hit adventure drama series. While we can’t wait to finally discover what has happened to Jon Snow, we are also anticipating another gorgeous beauty look from Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner). On tonight’s episode, Sansa makes a splash with her fiery red locks arranged into a haphazard side braid. If you’re looking to copy her effortless hairstyle at home, here’s how to channel your inner Sansa with an inspired look.

1) Start off by brushing out your locks and moving them to one side: For a flawless start, ensure that your tresses are brushed out and free of any tangles. Next, shift all your hair over to one side.

2) Begin backcombing a section of your hair: For the next step, create subtle volume by backcombing a segment of your hair on the back of your head.

3) Plait your hair into a loose side braid: Once you’ve brought a touch of volume to your locks, brush your tresses out again and separate your locks into two even sections. Twist the two segments together in order to create a textured, wrapped effect. Next, plait these sections into a thick braid and hold your locks in place with an elastic band.

4) Use your fingers to loosen the plaited segments: For a finishing touch, use your fingers to loosen the braided sections and create a pancaked effect. Adjust any pesky flyaway strands, and enjoy your new Sansa-esque hairstyle for a true Game of Thrones feel.
