London: `Harry Potter` star Daniel Radcliffe, who is has grown his hair to play Igor in the new version of `Frankenstein`, says it is harder than he expected.

The 24-year-old star showed off his new look on Sunday during WhatsOnStage Awards, where he won best actor in a play for `The Cripple of Inishmaan`.

"I don`t mind how it looks, but I mind dealing with it. I don`t know why any man would have it voluntarily. The amount of work it takes, having to dry it - doing anything to it is a... Nightmare," Radcliffe told the Telegraph.

"I do have a whole new sympathy for women. I wouldn`t be growing my hair this long in my own time."

But the look has its advantages as the publicity shy actor now finds it easier to incognito on the streets.
