The Hair

Sharp - - STYLE -

“It con­stantly causes me won­der­ment that peo­ple get so in­ter­ested in my hair,” says Har­ing­ton. It shouldn’t. The dude’s mop achieves the im­pos­si­ble: it makes long curls on a man ac­tu­ally look badass (rather than Kenny G-es­que). So what’s the se­cret to achiev­ing the finest flow in the Seven King­doms (be­sides, you know, be­ing born with nat­u­rally flow­ing, curly locks)? “The longer it’s left with­out do­ing much wash­ing, the bet­ter. That is the se­cret. Hon­estly, if you want medieval hair, that’s how you do it,” Har­ing­ton con­fesses.

There’s def­i­nitely a case to be made for wash­ing your hair less fre­quently — for curly hair, sham­poo­ing no more than twice a week keeps you from get­ting into afro ter­ri­tory. Still, a bit more care goes into Har­ing­ton’s coif than he lets on. Kevin Alexander, Got’s hair designer, says he usu­ally mixes to­gether wax and putty and, start­ing from the nape of the neck, scrunches it into Snow’s hair in sec­tions. (“I do this thing that my friends call juzzing — push­ing the curls up,” says Har­ing­ton.) To keep those tresses healthy, he also trims the ends ev­ery six to eight weeks, but no more than that or the hair loses its shape — and Har­ing­ton loses his job. “The stu­dio won’t let me cut it past a cer­tain length,” the ac­tor re­veals. “I’m wait­ing for that next part to come along where I can cut the damn stuff off. It’ll be a weird but bril­liant feel­ing.”
