If you want to look like royalty, you should try styling your hair like our ancestors did back in the medieval times. After all, our hair hasn't changed all that much over the years. There are some amazingly gorgeous styles that we've stolen from past time periods. If you want to wear your hair in a way that you haven't seen very often, try recreating these hairstyles inspired by the medieval times:
1. Tieback Twist
You're going to start by curling your hair. Just make sure you spray it with heat protectant first, so that you don't end up damaging your hair. Once the curls are finished, you should simply take a piece of hair from the left side of your head and the right side of your head and bring them together. Then you should take more pieces, and twist it around the hair that's already secured to the back of your head. You can even finish it off with flowers!
2. Braided Hairstyle
For this hairstyle, you're going to need a scarf. You'll be braiding your hair with it until you have a tiny braid on each side of your head. Once you do that, you can secure both sides with an elastic at the back of your head.
3. Medieval Inspired
You're going to start by taking a few strands of hair from the front of your head and clipping them out of the way, because you're going to end up curling them later. After you're finished with that, you want to start making a braid on your left and right. Tie all of your hair together to create a messy bun. Then you can release the pieces of hair you clipped aside to curl them.
4. Daenerys Taragaryen
This hairstyle requires quite a lot of braiding, so make sure you have plenty of time on your hands before you start. Of course, it's not all that difficult to create this look. As long as you have time, you'll be able to pull it off.
5. Sansa Stark
If you're a fan of Game of Thrones, you'll love this tutorial. It shows you more than how to create Sansa Stark's hair. It also shows you how to do her makeup! Of course, if you're only interested in the hairstyle, you should feel free to skip ahead to 8:00 to see exactly how it's done.
6. Medieval Italian
You've seen this style in plenty of old paintings. Skip to 2:15 to see how it's done. All you have to do is brush out your hair, create two three-strand braids, tie the ends of them together, and then secure them to the top of your head.
7. Three More Styles
