8 hairstyles inspired by ‘Game of Thrones’ for your weddings this summer

In these months of the year, weddings continue to accumulate and leave us with no ideas. How many have you already had? How many are left? Is yours coming? So, taking advantage of the furor that is awakening the seventh season of Game of Thrones , we give you the best hairstyles of the series to inspire you: braids, collected, semi-collected, loose hair …

Since the saga is set in a fictional universe closely related to the Middle Ages, the whole aesthetic follows the tradition of the great houses of that time. In addition, many of them remember the Old Age, with Greece and Rome as main representatives. In any case, elegance and sensuality go hand in hand. Do you want to try your luck with these hairstyles?

Daenerys Targaryen (Khalessi) and the Dutch braids

She is a warrior woman and involved with the cause, who stains, leads and rules like a real woman. And, in turn, does not lose an ounce of femininity.

One of his star hairstyles looks as much on great dates as on more everyday events. It starts with a Dutch braid that starts at the crown. Then, after dividing the hair with a sharp stripe in the middle, we recovered the Dutch braids, one on each side. These braids have a special feature: they begin to braid from the bottom, not from above, with a much more original result. Next, we left two inches between the braids and built two more. In both cases, always attach in the center with a plastic gum. To finish, gel fixative to secure them and the rest of the hair loose, on the shoulders. You will be a princess with rock and roll .

Sansa Stark: loose, collected and braids

Sansa Stark has changed a lot of hairstyles throughout the seasons. The most used is the loose hair, separated with a line in the middle and joining behind the two tufts that would cover the face. To make it perfect, you must reduce the moisture of the hair and use products to prevent frizz.

Game of Thrones

However, Sansa has also brought her hair totally collected for star events, and in a very original way. It could be defined as a tiara of braids, but the process has much more. First, we must divide the hair into two, separating the upper (above the ears), and the lower part, where we begin to forge small braids from the two halves (next to each of the ears). Second, we get to work with the top: we made two other braids, this time larger . At the end, we turned the two large braids into spirals, holding them with forks, And the rest we place it on the head, like a diadem and fastened with forks. Finally, we take the small braids and place them as a diadem, in front of the large braids. We reinforce with forks to avoid major evils during the big day.

Finally, we resorted to one of Sansa’s latest hairstyles. This one is more sober and in agreement with the maturity that the young woman begins to acquire in the last seasons. It consists of three braids: two small and one large. The first two are built after splitting the hair in the middle, from the birth of hair. Taking three locks from the top to start the process, we will reinforce one of them (always the same) with more hair through new locks. In this way, the braid will be constructed along the head, from the front to the back, at which time the braid will be completed in a normal manner. At the end of the process, both braids are joined with a clasp or a similar complement. With the remaining hair, we made a thick braid . The result is comfortable and elegant.

Cersei Lannister: mixing styles

Cersei has become accustomed to wearing a similar hairstyle in almost all seasons. This consists of three parts divided into three pigtails at different heights. Start working with the medium, whose process is very simple:  a large and long braid. Go back to the first ponytail and divide it into two fine braids that are joined around that great braid we already had. To finish, take the third ponytail and release it. If you want to look like Cersei, slightly rip your hair loose and drop it on your shoulders. The result is that of a strong and confident queen of herself, with a huge appeal.

Game of Thrones

In the last two seasons, and due to the surprising turning points of the script, Cersei has been forced to cut her long mane (rather, she has been pruned by force). However, the final product has been a cut pixie style ,which looks great with the blond color of the protagonist. Although the hairstyle is ideal for girls with sweet features, the beauty of Lena Headey, something more aggressive, does not make you lose any kind of attraction.

Missandei and her wild afro

The young assistant Daenerys has a delicate beauty that receives the spark of his Afro style, imprinting rebellion to his angelic appearance. For those extremely curly hairs that seem to levitate, or for those looking for a look of this style without having the predetermined cut, take different strands and make curlers so that the curl is very marked. Repeat the process with the other locks and accompany it with a touch of fixative to make it perfect. You can also put curlers and ensure a physiognomy without cracks. It is a style with a lot of flow , very underground and that will always be fashionable even if it does not look like it.

Melisandre, the priestess of the flanked braid

That red color passion of her mane is excellent with the braid, one of the hairstyles of the Priestess of Game of Thrones . You just have to make a dash in the middle and split the hair into tufts. Then pick it aside and begin to build a braid with three of those strands. But it’s not all said: the key is to stop halfway and leave the end of the braid unmade. This end can be adorned with a beautiful rubric: a wave or soft curl with iron or curling iron to brighten the result.

Game of Thrones

These are the most interesting hairstyles of the saga, many of them repeated in other characters. If you have a wedding, whether you are the protagonist or one more guest,  opt for these film designs and combine it with outfits that overflow personality.

The pound exchange rate from last week surprised experts who had not previously anticipated such problems for the British currency. At the same time, the euro rose to the same level as the rebound. However, experts point out that there are other reasons for this decline.

Certainly, the pound was affected by the inflation that has been rising since June, which is 1.2% at the moment, which also exceeded data experts’ expectations. The European Central Bank even considered reducing its guarantee to support its euro printing program. Ultimately, however, it was decided that more evidence was needed for rising inflation.

“The pound exchange rate for the euro did not have the best start this week when it had to pay 1.13 euros per pound,” said Laura Parsons, TorFX financial analyst. Meanwhile, the exchange rate of the pound against the dollar slightly increased after the end of last week fell.

“The British pound failed to take advantage of President Donald Trump’s suggestion on Friday that trade between the United Kingdom and the United States should be concluded as soon as possible, due to the lack of internal support the exchange rate may continue to hitherto.”

Currently, the pound exchange rate to the dollar is $ 1.29.

UN treaty on transnational corporations and human rights advances

On the agenda of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva last week was once again the treaty on transnational corporations and human rights . Even if it was only the presentation of the report of the second session of the Intergovernmental Working Group (IGWG), this was an important step towards the third negotiating session to be held in October 2017, when delegations Governmental organizations will discuss a first draft of the treaty.

As expressed by many states and civil society organizations, the report presented on 9 March by the IGWG President, Ambassador María Fernanda Espinosa of Ecuador, reflects a wealth of proposals from States, civil society, affected communities, academics , UN experts and other actors raised during the last two years, whose purpose is to establish binding international standards for the largest and most powerful companies in the world, which obliges them to respect human rights.

Once again, Friends of the Earth International (ATI / FoEI) was present with a delegation in Geneva that shared the concerns and demands of civil society. Just a couple of days after the first anniversary of the murder of Berta Cáceres , ATI representatives reminded the States in a timely manner of urgent action against the criminalization of and violence against human rights defenders Human and environmental rights that defend their rights and their territories from the companies that come to encroach on them.

“Systematic violations of the economic, social and cultural rights of many communities that are deprived of their lands and their livelihoods are possible and facilitated because of the participation or support and support of many investors and companies to whom International law does not forcefully bind human rights. “

Apollin Koagne Zouapet, Senior Counsel, CED / Friends of the Earth Cameroon

“It is not possible to achieve effective protection of human rights and environmental defenders if it is not addressed and rather evades the responsibility that has in those acts one of the main perpetrators of such violations. International court and effective mechanisms for sanctioning transnational corporations to prevent large companies from hiding behind investment protection agreements and the legal status of their subsidiaries to continue operating with impunity. ”

Juliette Renaud, corporate accountability campaign, Friends of the Earth France

It was encouraging to hear the support interventions of many developing countries to the Treaty process, especially from Tunis on behalf of the African Group, followed by welcome speeches by Botswana, Nigeria and South Africa. Unlike last year, in its written statement this time the EU thanked the IGWG Chair for her report. The Treaty process is now picking up speed.

“We can not depend on voluntary measures alone, as they do not make companies accountable. There have been promising recent developments in Europe, such as the French law on duty of care and the Dutch law of due diligence in work cases We are hoping that these examples will help build support for the UN Treaty, but we are witnessing that large companies are resistant to any binding regulatory initiative, which is why it is essential that we protect discussions about the Treaty from any attempt at corporate co-optation “.

Anne Van Schaik, campaign against the financial sector, Friends of the Earth Europe .

2017 should be a year of more robust mobilization of all sectors pushing for a strong process of IGWG negotiations around the formulation of the elements and structure of this new binding UN Treaty. Friends of the Earth International and its member groups in 75 countries is committed to supporting environmental and human rights advocates around the world, who require urgent protection of their rights, access to justice, and Accountability and accountability to transnational corporations for their rights violations.
