Why Kit Harington must never ever cut his hair

It turns out Mr. Kit Harington has been secretly thinking of cutting off his hair. Luckily the Game of Thrones folks have banned him from doing so and we agree.

At first glance this may seem preposterous — and, in all honesty, it probably is — but hear us out. We all know that Kit Harington is constantly praised for his portrayal of the ever-so-brooding Jon Snow on Game of Thrones, but it turns out that his perfect hair is also employed by the series. Strange, no?

“It has its own contract, definitely,” the actor told Live With Kelly and Michael. “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.’”

Adding, “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.’” 

Now, what really stood out for us in those statements is not the contract part, but the bit about him wanting to cut his hair? What’s that all about? We believe in freedom and human rights, but isn’t cutting off those beautiful curls illegal somewhere in the world? It must be.

We understand that Harington is not our property (although Jon Snow is amazing), but his hair is like an entirely sovereign entity at this point. We must protect the hair’s right to live gorgeously. We will take this to the Queen if we have to! To sum up, we think Kit Harington must never cut his hair. . . Ever. And we do have some fairly compelling arguments — or rather visuals — to back us up:

1. To start, here is our opening statement:

Yes, we are very persuasive. We think, the world can agree that Kit Harington must be henceforth banned from even contemplating cutting his hair. It cannot be, good Sir. It simply cannot it. Do you agree or not so much?
