A Game of Thrones star lands a beauty con­tract

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Trends - – San­dra Low

IN ev­ery episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones, we’ve en­joyed see­ing the North Queen’s long lus­cious mane beau­ti­fully braided, combed into a bun or let loose in mes­meris­ing waves.

So, it was only a mat­ter of time that a hair­care brand would take no­tice.

Wella Pro­fes­sion­als re­cently named 21-year-old Bri­tish ac­tress So­phie Turner as their brand am­bas­sador, on their In­sta­gram.

On Wella’s In­sta­gram, it stated, “Our brand am­bas­sador is the beau­ti­ful So­phie Turner. So­phie is con­stantly trans­form­ing roles and re­lies on hair­styl­ists to em­power her! Stay tuned as So­phie Turner shows you a glimpse of how stylists do it bet­ter!”

This is the first beauty con­tract for Turner, who plays Sansa Stark.

“Oh ma gawsh big news. I’m the new Wella Brand Am­bas­sador and so so ex­cited to join the #Wel­laFam­ily. Go fol­low @wella­hairusa - I’m tak­ing over the chan­nel soon!” Turner gushed on her In­sta­gram.

In the book Sansa’s hair is de­scribed as auburn so Turner had to dye her nat­u­ral blonde hair auburn when she au­di­tioned for the role.

Hav­ing had her hair dyed red­dish brown since 2011 when she got the role, Turner is now a pro in hair colour dyes and its ef­fects on hair.

Turner told Peo­ple that her red hair rep­re­sents the most amaz­ing pe­riod of her life as she trans­formed into Sansa Stark.

“It’s re­ward­ing to know that I had red hair for a while. I’m proud of my­self for do­ing that at such a young age be­cause it can be quite daunt­ing trans­form­ing my­self,” she added.

The ac­tress told Peo­ple that she loved some of the hair­styles cre­ated for her in her role as Sansa so much that she’s started wear­ing them off set!

“For a re­ally long time I was wear­ing my hair in a top­knot and leav­ing the bot­tom of the hair loose, from Game of Thrones,” she told Peo­ple. “Maybe I would braid the top. So I was def­i­nitely tak­ing Sansa in­spi­ra­tion circa sea­son five-ish. But I’m al­ways tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion. In X-Men, there was an ’80s big hairstyle, with a bit of vol­ume — I re­ally liked do­ing that for a while. Maybe a part of it is like psy­cho­log­i­cally get­ting my­self into that char­ac­ter in my time off but hon­estly I think it’s be­cause they style my hair so well on set and I’m not so good at it off-set.”

Now, we can’t wait to see the amaz­ing hair­styles and hair colours that Turner will be wear­ing at all the Red Car­pets, cour­tesy of Wella.
