I could make a pun about Kit “Hairington” but I won’t. Instead, I will just make lame Game Of Thrones references. You would think that what happened this week (no spoilers here) would be enough of a talking point, but we don’t only watch GOT for the nudity, dragons, fashion–oh, and the story–but for the hair. Who hasn’t become so transfixed by those contorted braids that are more complicated than trying to remember who’s dead and who’s alive? Bleach sales have soared 527% because of Daenerys Targaryen‘s Khaleesi blonde. Fact.
And let’s not forget about the men’s hair, especially Kit Harington (unfortunately Peter Dinklage‘s high school mullet doesn’t count). He impresses me not just because he manages to make wearing a fur jacket look attractive, he has those curls that have blessed by the Gods, both old and new.
“It has its own contract, definitely. I never thought I’d say that about my own hair … I’m not allowed to cut it, and I didn’t realize this until recently. I wanted to cut it — I’ve had long hair for ages — and and they were like, ‘No, no, no. That won’t be happening.”
This could be a big plot spoiler here. I am sure that head of beautiful hair might hold the secrets that would solve all the problems from Beyond The Wall to The Free Cities and finally unite the Seven Kingdoms.
If you want proof of my ridiculous but still plausible theory, co-host Kelly Ripa suggested he could cut his hair and get extensions when he was filming, but this is a no-go:
“They don’t like doing that. It’s very funny when you get into these things, and people get very obsessed by little things … There’s all of these ridiculous conversations that go back and forth between agents and managers and HBO: ‘Can we have four inches off or can we have an inch off? What can we do with this? How curly should it be? It’s silly.’”
See every one of those ringlets could help stop the battles and bloodshed. Forget about all these new war, direwolves and illegitimate heirs theories supposedly solving things.
Plus, some HBO executive probably realized that man weaves aren’t hot and they calculated that 56% of their viewers tune in to see the wind blowing Jon Snow’s perfect frizz-free hair.
Somebody needs to give Kit Harrington a shampoo endorsement deal now.
