In season one, his hair was shoulder-length and blond. This style most closely conforms to the character which is portrayed in the books. During the second season, his hair was much shorter, but remained blond. It was a layered cut, swept back with no bangs.
According to the story, he had to cut his hair due to stubborn bloodstains which could not be removed. During the third & fourth season, his hair was trimmed shorter, became darker, and was styled into conservative style with side part.
