7 Times Killian Jones’s Hair Game Was Stronger Than Ours

I’ve dedicated plenty a tweet to the subject of Killian Jones’s hair, especially in Season Five. Colin O’Donoghue is a handsome guy who’s clearly got the good genes on his side, but he also must have a hell of a stylist. There’s just no other explanation for the amount of hair envy I’ve felt for a man while watching Once Upon A Time this season.

Looking back, though, it’s become obvious that his hair game was always strong. I was the one who had to catch up. Accept the pretty. And that’s exactly what I’m doing. So, while we count down the days for new Once Upon A Time episodes, let’s look back at seven times Killian Jones’s hair game was stronger than ours.

When we first met him and it was messy…

Stupidly handsome men being stupidly handsome is not something new on TV. But Colin O’Donoghue walked into our screens and took residence upon our hearts from, literally, the first moment. At the time I still thought it was the facial hair that made him so attractive. And yes, there’s that. Plus the face. And the “innocent” not so innocent look. But also, it’s the hair. Just look at it. It’s the hair.

When it was wet…

Because, ahem …fantasies. We’re only human, after all.

When it was blowing in the wind …

And you just kind of want to run your fingers through it, make it so it doesn’t spike that much. But, at the same time, you don’t, because he just looks so damn good like this.

When it was longer…

And you just wanted to grab it. Because it was there, and how could you not? But you also wanted to smooth it back, and then style it, and basically just touch it. Yes. That.

When it was shorter…

And you wondered, is it possible that this man can pull of every style?

When he was in Camelot…

And it wasn’t too long or too short, just the right length for Emma to run her fingers through it, and you got OTP feels and almost died right then and there.

When he was the Dark One…

And he couldn’t be bothered with a comb. Dark Ones have better things to do, right?

What do you think? Agree? Disagree? Have another gif you want to add? Did I at least manage to distract you with the silliness enough so you aren’t desperately counting down the days, hours and minutes till a new episode? Share with us in the comments!

Once Upon A Time returns to ABC on Sunday, March 6th at 8/7c.


  1. I love his hair. Anyway

    But for season 5 arc, i think longer suits it

  2. While I do prefer his shorter hair, the man looks great with any style hair.
