Harington debuts cropped coif

Kit Harington has showed off his new short hair after lamenting about not being able to cut it due to his Game of Thrones role.

The 28-year-old actor has lamented in the past over not being able to cut his long locks due to his role as Jon Snow on hit HBO show, Game of Thrones.

But it seems Kit has finally secured the chance to sport shorter hair, as he debuted a fresh haircut during the Testament of Youth red carpet premiere in London on Monday January 5.

Although Kit kept most of his length, he did shave a few inches from his crown.

The star previously joked about a contract he has with Game of Thrones producers that focuses solely on how he styles his hair.

“It has its own contract, definitely,” he revealed during a chat on American daytime TV show LIVE with Kelly and Michael last summer. “I never thought I’d say that about my own hair … I’m not allowed to cut it, and I didn’t realise 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.’”

Kit has also expressed his desire to institute a more relaxed hair maintenance routine into his daily schedule.

“Everyone asks about the bl***y hair,” he told ASOS magazine. “Secretly, I’m really looking forward to changing it, like in Testament [where he rocks a slick combover]. Do you want the honest truth? Until recently, I only washed it with shower gel because my mum always told me it’s the same stuff as shampoo. I’ve discovered conditioner though, that’s pretty good.”
