30 Days of Nerdy Hair

Day 4: Rosie the Riveter

Granted, today’s hair is on the easier side, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a classic!

Rosie the Riveter has become a classic role model for feminists the world over. And in our culture right now, the word feminist is something of a hot topic! Perhaps it’s always been so. But nevertheless this lady paved the way for women to take charge, feel powerful and look awesome doing it!

The main points to get here are the head scarf and the rolled bangs. It doesn’t matter what color scarf you get. As long as you have attitude to go along with it!

Day 2: Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones

Today’s inspiration is Daenerys Stormborn, Mother of Dragons and the once and future Khaleesi of Westeros. Played by Emilia Clarke on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Dany has seen many epic hairdos on GoT. Mainly involving intricate braids.
But this look is most current, from season 3 and my particular favorite.

Part hair in the middle. Create two braids starting just off center of your part on each side of your head.
Pin together in the back. Then create another set of braids on each side closer to the ears. Also tie those together in the back.

Finish off by giving all the hanging hair a bit of a curl.
