Author Notes

Shannon Burns is a social neuroscience PhD student by day, but in her free time, she runs Silvousplaits, one of the most influential movie and TV hair tutorial channels on YouTube. Shannon specializes in making videos and pictorials that replicate the fantasy, sci-fi, and historical hairstyles of popular media, including Game of Thrones, The Lord of the Rings, Vikings, Star Wars, and more. She started her Internet hair adventures in February 2013 after a post to reddit.com/r/gameofthrones went viral. Since then, her tutorials have been featured on HBO Watch, mtv.com, BuzzFeed, and the History Channel.
