I love fabulously designed hair. And in fantasy, there are so many hairstyles to choose from! Here are my top 3 Fantasy Hairdos:
3. Thror’s Beard (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012)
While beards often aren’t mentioned when people are discussing “hairdos,” they still count! Which is why I chose Thror’s bejeweled and braided beard as my third favorite. While I would never be able to pull this off (mainly because I’m beardless), I still have to admire how his beard supports so many pieces of metal. ;)
2. Eowyn’s Bun (The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers 2002)
While we mostly see Eowyn with her flaxen tresses floating on the breeze, she did have her hair pulled back for Théodred’s funeral into a pretty braid bun. This is my second favorite hairstyle, because of its elegance.
1. Tauriel’s Hair (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 2013)
I’d never be able to leave my hair hanging loose if it were that long, but somehow Tauriel manages to be the captain of the Elven guard and have long, beautiful hair. I love how the top half is pulled back in braids, while the rest of her flaming hair falls past her waist.
If you could style your hair anyway you wanted to—regardless of skill level ;)—how would you style it? What are some of your favorite fantasy hairdos? Are there any fantasy hair don’ts that you’d like to share?
Thank you for reading!
