Instagram Roundup: Braids of Thrones

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know how big the Game of Thrones phenomenon has become.

The show's leading ladies—Cersei Lannister, Sansa Stark and Daenerys Targaryen—serve up fierce updos, braids and twists week after week, and they're giving inspiration to hairstylists everywhere. We took to Instagram to roundup a few of our favorite Game of Thrones-inspired braids:
