Per Game of Thrones Fandom knowledge, Kit Harrington, otherwise swoonfully known as Jon Snow, was not allowed to cut his hair under contract. He told Metro he "screwed himself over there," that he agreed to that, when the women got to wear wigs.
I won't explain how or why this matters without first warning of Spoilers. If you don't want to know, don't look beyond Doctor Who's River Song.
After the fall of Jon Snow, the GOT fandom cried a unanimous "NOOOOOO!" With his death, there's still tons of speculation, especially after the line "I've been worrying about Jon Snow for years... He always comes back."
Well, rabid fans, feast ye eyes on this:

WHAT DOES IT MEAN?! WHAT DOES IT MEAN?!!??
Though Harrington told Variety that “I’ve been told I’m dead. I’m dead. I’m not coming back next season. So that’s all I can tell you, really," we are still holding out hope that it's not true, especially after him being spotted at Wimbledon with his signature hair. I mean, if he hated his hair that much, he wouldn't keep it... right? RIGHT?!
