We, along with the rest of the world, literally stopped everything we were doing and took to Twitter to express our feelings (we had a lot of them).

Some fans were utterly heartbroken.

Twelve minutes after posting the Instagram pic revealing that he donated his signature locks to Little Princess Trust — a charity that makes wigs for children who've lost their hair due to cancer treatments — #RIPHarrysHair shot to the number one hashtag in the world on Twitter, with many fans asking why the boy band superstar would do such a thing.

Other Directioners, however, were ready for Styles to move on and leave his curls (and man braids) far behind, especially with his band, One Direction, taking a hiatus.

New direction, new Harry.

And FINALLY, after waiting for approximately 96 hours for the Redditch, U.K.-native to emerge and debut his dramatic makeover, the day arrived on Monday afternoon. And we have to say, we were left a little disappointed.


Spotted out in London by The Sun, Harry gave fans a rather cheeky glimpse of his new 'do, hiding it under a rather flimsy fisherman's cap.

And of course, Directioners had very strong opinions about that hat:

Speculation about Harry's ~dramatic~ makeover had many in a frenzy earlier in the week when "X Factor U.K." alumni, Ellis Lacy decided to upload a video to his Snapchat account of him face-swapping with Styles. The vid caused hysteria and fans were left disappointed when it was revealed that the cheeky upload was merely a prank.


"I just uploaded it as bit of a laugh, I never expected it to blow up so quickly," Lacy told The Sun Online. "It's very flattering that some people have believed it, Harry's a good looking lad."

So if you're reading this Harry Styles, here's what we have to say: enough with the games already. Just show us the damn haircut.
