When she’s not studying for her PhD in social neuroscience, Silvousplaits (a.k.a. Shannon Burns) is creating and posting weekly instructional videos on her YouTube channel of DIY hair art that mimics the hairstyles of valiant men and women in the best historical, sci-fi, and fantasy shows and movies.
In Badass Braids, Shannon shows you how to transform your hair, step by step. The book covers braids and styles from a full spectrum of fantasy worlds (and galaxies), from ancient adversaries and viking warriors to romantic renegades and sci-fi heroines.
With an introduction to the styling techniques for different kinds of basic braids, interviews with behind-the-scenes stylists and actors, and original styles inspired by fan-favorites, you will learn to recreate the hairstyles of Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Anne Boleyn (The Tudors), the Norse king Ragnar Lothbrok (Vikings), Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones), and many more.
Badass Braids is the perfect gift for geeky men and women of all ages!
