Vikings are truly history's badasses - the wolf fur-wearing, Sleipnir-taming conquerors that have left their incredible mark all over the world. And though one might think of them as mountain-sized savages, the truth is that Vikings cared about their appearances as much as they cared about Odin. Not only they were known for their love for saunas and general cleanliness, but also their red or blond meticulously well-kept manes, which led the Viking men to be regarded as wife-stealers and maid charmers.

Based on many archaeological finds, such as ornate hair combs and figurines depicting both Viking men and women with well-groomed hair and intricate braids, we can make a pretty accurate guess on how the Viking style would have looked. And this time, we'd like to acquaint you with fierce-looking Viking hairstyles. Though most of them seem to need the attention of a professional hairstylist, these hair-braiding examples are perfectly doable at home. The only catch is that you need longer hair to express the Viking braids fully. Other than that, anyone can channel their inner Valkyrie with these hairstyle ideas.

Now, scroll down and check these luxurious Viking-hair-inspired styles and be ready to charm your way in conquering lands and enslaving the hearts of pretty maidens and handsome lads because these hairdos will transform you into a bewitching warrior in no time. Also, don't forget to vote and comment on the ones that you liked the best!

#3 This Is Impressive

Though basic Viking-inspired hairstyles are doable at home, braiding such as this one, requires the attention of a professional. Vikings were very clean regarding hygiene standards of their times, but they still washed their hair only once a week, so most of the braiding was done in such a manner that the hairstyle wouldn't have to be redone more often
