Back in the day, Taylor Swift was just a country cutie with big dreams and a head full of curls.

Maybe fans are reminiscent for the days of yore, after the recent media beatings their girl’s been taking from everyone from Kim and Kanye to Justin Bieber to Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario, but when the songstress brought her infamous spirals out for a night on the town this Saturday, Swifties all but lost their damn MINDS.

Flooding Twitter with their excitement, it wasn’t long before #TaylorsCurlsAreBack was a trending topic.

Some used the opportunity to post hilarious memes.

Okayyyyy, a lot of folks did.

Others, however, took the news more seriously. While some may say it’s just a hairstyle, many fans believe the change actually signifies a new era — already dubbed TS6 — one that sees Taylor returning to her country roots.

As Twitter user Slaylor pointed out, the mounting evidence was practically undeniable.

Taylor, for her part, had no f’s to give regarding the non-stop drama that seems to be surrounding her of late, jamming with Nelly on his duet with Kelly Rowland “Dilemma” without a care in the world, as can be seen in the video below.

Oh, and in case you forgot about the pre-drama Taylor Swifties are clearly calling for a revival of, we’re just gonna’ go ahead and leave this here, because, well, it’s actually pretty great.

Long live curly-haired Taylor!
