Uh, ladies? We鈥檝e got some bad news for those of you who were fans of Harry Styles鈥 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鈥檚 own Instagram earlier, pretty much speaks 1,000 of them, all at once.

That鈥檚 right, 1D fans: Harry (gasp!) just chopped off his beloved flowing locks! Captioned with nothing but a 鈥渨hoops,鈥 the singer pretty much has the entire Internet buzzing (we鈥檙e not kidding 鈥 #RIPHarrysHair is a thing, and it鈥檚 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 鈥 okayyy, that鈥檚 kind of adorbs, Harry.

For now, the verdict鈥檚 still out about the appearance of his current 鈥榙o, (six hours later and counting!), but we鈥檙e sure One Direction fans the world over will be eagerly awaiting Harry鈥檚 new 鈥style鈥 (and working it into their 1D art pieces, natch).
