Are Harry Styles fans mourning his buzzcut?

Harry Styles has pulled off yet another shocking style change, and this time, it’s really got the fans up in arms. During an outing with rumored girlfriend Taylor Russell at a U2 concert, the former One Direction star was spotted wearing a new short buzzcut which is definitely a far cry from his signature luscious brown curls. The change comes as a real surprise, given that Styles was seen with his usual full head of hair just a few weeks prior.

Now, everyone knows that a simple haircut should not be a big deal, but when it comes to Harry’s hair, it seems that his fans have a rather different perspective. Twitter, in particular, has been set ablaze with reactions to the new look, with one person joking about the irony of his name, “How tf are you gonna be named Harry Styles with no hair to style.” Another fan joked about the monumental nature of the change, “This day will be remembered in history for the day the world collectively mourning [sic] over Harry Styles’ beautiful hair.”

Some have even gone as far as to link the haircut to Taylor Swift’s recent rerelease of her album “1989 (Taylor’s Version).” In her song “Now That We Don’t Talk,” there are lyrics that seem to allude to Styles’ post-breakup hair growth. Like, “You grew your hair long / And you’ve got new icons / And from the outside, it looks like you’re trying lives on.” This, of course, is not the first time that Swift has seemingly referenced her relationship with Styles in her music. Their brief romance from a few years ago has long been the subject of fan speculation, with songs like “Out of the Woods” and “Style” being widely believed to be inspired by their relationship.

Swift, however, has never explicitly identified Styles as the subject of her songs, but she has also never explicitly denied it. Her habit of leaving clues and hints in her music paired with her refusal to “name names” makes her a favorite topic for fans and tabloids alike.

After their split, Swift went on to date high-profile figures including Calvin Harris, Tom Hiddleston, and Joe Alwyn, while Styles experienced high-profile romances with Kendall Jenner and Olivia Wilde before getting together with Russell according to recent media reports.

As Styles and Russell seem to be getting more serious, the public interest in their relationship continues to grow. A source told Us Weekly in October that “things are very serious” between the two, and that Styles “loves spending as much time with her as he can.”

It’s clear that the fans are taking this latest hair development to heart, but as always, there’s no telling how this will play out in the end. Regardless, it’s safe to say that Harry’s hair will continue to be a topic of conversation for years to come.
