Uh, ladies? We’ve got some bad news for those of you who were fans of Harry Styles’ flowing locks (although, according to this study, you may have been in the minority!). While we could tell you with words, we think this picture, posted to Harry’s own Instagram earlier, pretty much speaks 1,000 of them, all at once.

Whoops. #Littleprincesstrust

That’s right, 1D fans: Harry (gasp!) just chopped off his beloved flowing locks! Captioned with nothing but a “whoops,” the singer pretty much has the entire Internet buzzing (we’re not kidding — #RIPHarrysHair is a thing, and it’s REAL) about the unpredictable change, leaving many questions in its wake (mainly consisting of WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE, and also, is his neck cold?).

The one thing we DO know so far is that Harry seems to have made the move in support of Little Princess Trust, a British charity which makes wigs for sick children — okayyy, that’s kind of adorbs, Harry.

For now, the verdict’s still out about the appearance of his current ‘do, (six hours later and counting!), but we’re sure One Direction fans the world over will be eagerly awaiting Harry’s new “style” (and working it into their 1D art pieces, natch).
