Men of Westeros: Game Of Thrones Hairstyles

After 2 years of waiting, Game of Thrones Season 8 is finally here. Winter has come and the fate of many characters is uncertain. Being the show’s swan song, let’s revisit all past seven seasons with a focus on how the male characters have developed in terms of hairstyles.

There are many iconic men hairstyles in Game Of Thrones. Some characters have changed their hairstyle, some remained the same and because we’re speaking of GoT, some didn’t get a chance to do that.

Without further ado, we present Game of Thrones Hairstyles: Men of Westeros & Beyond

01. Jon Snow Hairstyles

03. Jamie Lannister Hairstyle

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jamie Lannister – Season 1 – Season 8

We’ve hated him, we’ve loved him, we were unsure and so on. Jamie Lannister is a key player in the show and a fan favorite. When we first meet him in season one he has a medium length hair with curtains. After 8 years, 3 children and a hand lost, we find him with shorter hair and fringe, but we can also notice the grey hairs from his beard.

04. Robb Stark Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Richard Madden as Robb Stark – Season 1 – Season 3

Robb Stark didn’t have time to make dramatic makeovers due to him being suddenly named Warden of the North, but we couldn’t have not mentioned those amazing flowing curls.

05. Robert Baratheon Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Jack Gleeson as Joffrey Baratheon – Season 1 – Season 4

There isn’t a character in recent history more obnoxious than Joffrey. In terms of hairstyles, he didn’t experiment much. He kept his blonde boyish haircut with bangs throughout 4 seasons.

07. Ned Stark Hairstyle

Sean Bean as Eddard “Ned” Stark – Season 1

The most honorable man across all seven kingdoms didn’t have enough time to get his head hair cut. We remember him with long hair, something similar to Robert Baratheon, and freshly trimmed beard.

Even though he was only part of Season one, he remains one of the most important characters in the show.

08. Gendry Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Gendry Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Joe Dempsie as Gendry – Season 1 – Season 8

In terms of Game of Thrones hairstyles, Gendry went from short hair to a buzz cut. Not the best choice for winter.

09. Khal Drogo Hairstyle

Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo – Season 1

Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo was something to die for. His iconic long hair and beard riding in the wind was amazing. Too bad we didn’t get a chance to see more of this character.

10. Theon Greyjoy Hairstyle

Theon Greyjoy Hairstyle

Alfie Allen as Theon Greyjoy – Season 1 – Season 8

Theon Greyjoy had a complicated run in Game of Thrones. You’ve loved him, hated him, felt sorry for him, loved him again. In terms of hairstyles he went from wavy short hair to a messy hairstyle.

11.Tyrion Lannister Hairstyles

Tyrion Lannister Hairstyles

Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister – Season 1 – Season 8

One of the most drastic makeovers in terms of Game of Thrones hairstyles. Tyrion went from a short layered hairstyle to curly bangs and a goatee. He definitely found the right hair products in his travels.

13. Samwell Tarly Hairstyles

Samwell Tarly Hairstyles

14. Lancel Lannister Hairstyles

Eugene Simon as Lancel Lannister – Season 1 – Season 6

Lancel went from a Red Riding Hood look to a more appropriate one – crew cut – even though his crew wasn’t exactly good for King’s Landing.

15. Bran Stark Hairstyles

Bran Stark Hairstyles

Isaac Hempstead Wright as Bran Stark – Season 1 – Season 8

Before jump scaring everyone in Season 8 by appearing from nowhere, Bran had a boyish shoulder length haircut. Time passed, hair got shorter, bangs are still trending in Westeros.

16. The Hound Hairstyle

The Hound Hairstyle game of thrones hairstyles

Rory McCann as Sandor “The Hound” Clegane – Season 1 – Season 8

No hairstyle change for this character in 8 whole seasons. To be honest, his long hairstyle serves a purpose.

17. Tormund Hairstyle

Tormund Hairstyle ginger hair game of thrones

Kristofer Hivju as Tormund Giantsbane – Season 3 – Season 8

Everybody loves Tormund with his slicked back ginger hair and full red beard. He has a viking vibe.

Ed Skrein – Season 3 & Michiel Huisman – Season 4 – Hopefully Season 8 – as Dario Naharis

They’ve done it this time, they’ve completely changed the whole look of this character. From long blonde hair to medium length wavy brown hair.

19.Podrick Hairstyles

Podrick Hairstyles

Daniel Portman as Podrick Payne – Season 2 – Season 8

The man known for certain enlarged talents kept his haircut, but he let it grow longer. He might be in between cuts. Let’s hope he survives this season.

20. Bronn Hairstyles

Bronn Hairstyles

Jerome Flynn as Bronn – Season 1 – Season 8

Bronn went for a short trim, texture, volume and a new hair color.

Bronn is the best GoT character and deserves his castle!


21. Ramsay Bolton Game of Thrones Hairstyles

 Ramsay Bolton Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Iwan Rheon as Ramsay Bolton – Season 3 – Season 6

Ramsay didn’t have a dramatic makeover. He left his thick hair grow, for a fuller look, had a clean shave for the battle of bastards and thank God we don’t have to see him ever!

22. Davos Seaworth Hairstyles

Davos Seaworth Hairstyles

Liam Cunningham as Davos Seaworth – Season 2 – Season 8

With a receding hairline, he found the look that suits him best.

23. Jorah Mormont Hairstyles

Iain Glen as Jorah Mormont – Season 1 – Season 8

Loyal, friend, friend-zoned, Jorah Mormont is one of the most loved characters in the show. He went from messy unkempt hair to a lovely hard part combover.

24. Oberyn Martell Game Of Thrones Hairstyles

25. Littlefinger Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Littlefinger Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Aidan Gillen as Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish – Season 1 – Season 7

The mastermind. The schemes. The Power Moves. We all thought, at least for a moment, that he would end up on the Iron Throne. That didn’t happen, thankfully. Speaking of things that didn’t happen, his hairstyle stayed basically the same throughout the show, many got a little darker in the last seasons. One iconic thing about his hairstyle is the grey sides.

26. Thoros of Myr Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Thoros of Myr Game of Thrones Hairstyles

Paul Kaye as Thoros of Myr – Season 3 – Season 7

Kind of a risky move to have a top knot with that receding hairline.

27. White Walker Game of Thrones Hairstyles

White Walker Game of Thrones Hairstyles

As we can expect – long white hair + receding hairline.


To summarize Game of Thrones hairstyles – they love bangs! We’ve reviewed 27 male characters from the show. Let us know which character we’ve missed and we’ll update the article.
