About Silvousplaits


Hi! I’m Silvousplaits, also known as Shannon Burns is real life. By day I’m a social neuroscience PhD student, but with my free time I am an online hairstyle blogger, where I run one of the most influential movie and tv hair tutorial channels on Youtube. I specialize in making videos and pictorials that replicate the fantasy, sci-fi, and historical hairstyles of popular media, such as Game of Thrones, Lord of the Rings, Vikings, Star Wars, etc. My goal is to provide clear and understandable instructions for DIY creative hair art so that anyone can learn to make their heads fancy!

I started my Internet hair adventures in February 2013 after a post to reddit.com/r/gameofthrones went viral. Since then, my tutorials have been featured on HBO Watchmtv.com, Buzzfeed, and the History Channel, and several of my videos are the top results for Youtube searches for tv and movie hairstyles. I also post tutorials for my own original designs from time to time, as well basic hairstyling how to’s and haircare information based on scientific research. Outside of Youtube, I make pictorials for quick hairstyling references, share awesome hair photos, and provide personal hairstyling info and services. If you’re interested in any of those, use the links in the menu at the top of the page.

Thank you for visiting this website and thank you for your interest in my work! If you ever have any questions or suggestions, please leave me a comment, message me on social media, or e-mail me at silvous.plaits@gmail.com.
