Harry Styles fans have been roasting their fave after the star officially confirmed his hairstyle is no longer the same As It Was.
The Watermelon Sugar singer has taken his look in a grade-one direction, but some people think his former locks were what made him beautiful.
Speculation had kept fans Up All Night since Sunday when his mum confirmed the world’s most famous mop top was “gone”.
Shared by his beauty brand Pleasing, the update showed Harry wearing a sweater and sporting his new streamlined look – but didn’t reference his haircut.
As you can probably imagine, the comments were less bothered about his new fragrance.
And while Harry might want fans to treat him with kindness, it’s safe to say most don’t adore it.

One nicknamed him “hairless styles” and another commented: “I’ve been waiting for confirmation and now I wish I didn’t have it.”
But others have urged the nay-sayers to just stop their crying.
“I actually love the buzz cut,” one said.
Harry’s iconic curly waves do have a whole lot of History behind them, and have even sparked fan theories about why he paid a visit to the barber’s chair.
One involves his former girlfriend Taylor Swift and rumours his chop could be linked to the release of album 1989 (Taylor’s Version).
In Now That We Don’t Talk, she sings of a lover who grew his hair long and tried lives on before saying “I miss the old ways, you didn’t have to change”.
But, if you listen to Harry’s mum, Anne Twist, the explanation could be much simpler.
She asked if the haircut rumours were true, and why Harry had decided to do it.
According to his mum, he “just fancied a change” after going away on holiday.
