“You’ve no right to a braid! You’ve won no victories yet!”
It’s been pretty well-documented that the costume and makeup team on Game of Thrones uses hair in symbolic ways throughout the series.
Sansa has been the biggest example thus far.
So I am honestly shocked that we hadn’t noticed a glaring, seasons-long trend in Daenerys’ hair until now.
As you probably know, the Dothraki adorn their braids after victories and cut them off after a defeat.
That’s why Khal Drogo had such a looooooong braid.
