The 13 Best Reactions to Loki’s New Hair From My Tumblr Queue Last Night



I said we’d talk about this later, and now we are. I lazily pulled up Tumblr last night during a break from arranging some instrumental Doctor Who music for my a capella group (you can decide on your own whether that is true or not) and discovered that fandom had found a new chew toy and it was the first trailer for Thor: The Dark World. Specifically, it was the trailer’s one shot of potentially former villain Loki, the first reveal of his brand new The Dark World ‘do.

It has not gone unnoticed that Thor and Loki both sported longer hair in The Avengers than in their initial cinematic appearances, or that Chris Hemsworth’s ‘do got even longer, even incorporating a braid, for The Dark World. Fans wondered if Loki’s hair would follow suit. Fans wondered if this hair lengthening would ever stop, and if by The Avengers 3 the other members of the team would be indistinguishable as every room becomes filled, top to bottom, with the soft, golden locks of the Thunder God as soon as he enters it. But I digress. You can watch the new teaser here, if you haven’t already. Lets look at the best reactions from our dashboard and the Loki tag.

    I like his hair! But I have a thing for long hair on dudes. Especially this particular dude.

    As a member of the Doctor Who Fan Orchestra, I would very much like to hear your arrangements. Unless you’re lying.
    I am not lying.

    Ahahahahahaha! Before clicking I thought, maybe it’s high and tight, that’s okay, Tom Hiddleston can pull it off. And then it was the OPPOSITE. Oh god, being so surprised actually makes me alright with it.

    For real though. As a Whovian and a cappella junkie, I really want to see those.

    Tommy Wisseau really scored a great role this time

    Long, short, gone—there is no hair that can detract from that man’s beauty.

    The fact that both Loki’s and Thor’s hair just keeps getting longer just adds to the whole brotherly/hero-villain competition the two have going on. “No, brother, my hair’s prettier.” “We’ll see about that!”

    Plus, then there’s this:

    There’s a whole Loki/The Room mash-up meme now and it’s just the greatest.

    So, it’s not my favourite style, but I don’t dislike it per say. I think it’d be better if he ran a comb through it and add a bit of product, but the character has been in prison for awhile, so I guess it;s understandable.
    (That last one gets me, because Legolas is one of my other loves…and also proof that I have a thing for men with hair prettier than mine).

    LOKI DID HIS WAITING. 12 YEARS OF IT. IN AZKABAN!

    Don’t care. I will break out my dry shampoo and detangler, and then Loki and I shall party.

    People didn’t like it? I mean yeah, it was a bit grungy, but he’s been in prison.Give him a bit to snag a shower and he will be back to perfect.

    It scares me that there are 15 (at last count) comments on Loki’s hair, not to mention all the fan reaction above. So I call BS on women talking about us talking about Hermione.

    “You are tearing me apart, Thor!”

    I don’t give a shit what his hair looks like, I just want to feed him chocolate chip cookies and heal his pain with the power of luuuuurve.

    So am I all alone in that I love this hair? Makes him look like the dudes I sketched in my note books a decade ago in HS…

    Perfectly glorious long locks. A+++

    Must resist urge…to edit voice-over at end of trailer….it’s just too fitting. Loki is after all trapped in a Room…

  • Lady Viridis

    All I can think of is the quote from Avatar the Last Airbender’s “The Ember Island Players” episode. “Zuko! We have to talk… about your hair! It’s gone too far!”

    I don’t actually mind it, though. Dude’s been in prison, and Loki being Loki, he probably *could* manage to escape with something as simple as a hair comb. Best not to take any chances.

    “I did not hit her! I did not. …O hai Thor!”

    Hm, not quite… more like:
    “Everybody betrayed me. I’m fed up with this world!”

    Or maybe:
    “Tony, two is great, but three is a crowd.”

    Wait, this is turning into fanfiction.

    Asgard prison in the Marvel-verse is goddamn swank compared to Asgard prison in Norse mythology. Loki should be thanking his lucky stars he’s not tied up in his son’s entrails with a snake strapped to his face.

    Did you see the one where someone dressed him up like Skrillex? Brilliant.

    I do love his hair, though. But then again Hiddleston could have shown up in cornrows and I’d have gone for it.

    Definitely the second quote. it fits Loki so well.

    That’s why they don’t dare slip a comb into that cell. And just imagine what havoc he could wreak with a dollop of hair gel…

    It’s … Grima Wormtongue but with a perm?

    Wow. The Tommy Wiseau comparison… I can’t believe they went there. LEAVE LOKI ALONE!

    This thing is missing the Skrillex edit, I laughed when I saw it and I laugh everytime I remember it.

    Oh good, thought I had gone a bit off the deep end there. :)

    I lost it when I saw him, his hair only adds to hotness

    I care not. ‘Tis Loki. Thy hair takes naught from thy badassness.

    Nope. On him that hair is enough to make me wonder if I’m just a teeny bit bi.

    My faves were “I’ll help, but you have to give me my iPod back because I’m going to need at LEAST AC/DC for my battle entrance music”, “Mom, it’s not a phase, I’m just metal!”, and “Somebody bust me out of here. There’s a Pantera concert in like an HOUR.”

    They did better than that later – someone actually shopped him into the video. Face paint and the whole nine yards.
