The Next Big Game of Thrones Shocker: Jon Snow Is Getting a New Hairstyle (So We Tried a Few Other Looks on Him)
Here's proof that Jon Snow would look amazing with a nice ombre
Game of Thrones spoiler alert! In case you missed this week’s long-awaited reveal, Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) is back from the dead. Sure, the moment when Jon reawakens is shocking, but there’s a shot just moments before may be even more shocking: Melisandre cuts. Jon’s. glorious. hair. According to our friends at Entertainment Weekly, Melisandre actually chopped his extensions(!), because Harington went shorter following the season-five finale to “sell [the story that he was leaving the series] a bit more” after when the character was killed. EW also revealed that Jon’s newly shorn locks will be worn in a new style this season: the man-bun. The revelation got us thinking, why stop there? Here, we offer the showrunners five more relevant hairstyles in case their “Curly Hairstyles” Pinterest board is running a little low on inspiration.
