Game of Thrones is known for a lot of things—incest, mass killings, and some seriously heartbreaking weddings— but one of our favorite things to love about GoT is the lustrious mane of Jon Snow, better known off screen as Kit Harington. And we know we're not alone in our love of his long silky strands.
