Astrid's hairstyle and clothing changes over the course of the films. In the first film, she wears her hair in a tight braid and wears clothes covered in armor and spikes. These symbolize her initially harsh and overly aggressive personality. In the second film, she wears a looser braid and her clothes have a noticeably softer appearance. These show how Hiccup's kind and loving nature has influenced her. In this film, her hair is now in a half-braid and her clothes are more sleek and feminine. These mirror her maturity and full change of heart.
