We knew this day would come, but we’re still not prepared. Harry Styles, the One Direction star who made us all revert back to fangirling teeny boppers with his soulful voice, piercing green eyes and Hawaiian T-shirt obsession, has cut his famous hair. And it’s not just your average trim.
The 22-year-old singer showed the post-chop evidence on Instagram — a 6-inch plus braid which he dangled in his hand — along with a simple caption: “Whoops.” And since you’re probably still in shock, we included the photo again below.

Harry’s been sporting his perfectly tousled shoulder-grazing strands for a while now, so why the big chop? Get out the Kleenex: He’s donating his hair to the Little Princess Trust, an organization which provides real hair wigs, free of charge, to boys and girls across the UK and Ireland that have lost their own hair during cancer treatment. (He’s now a true prince in our hearts.)
While we wait for the “after photo” of his new short hair, we’ll just be staring at the below gif while contemplating the world pre-HC (Harry’s cut).
