It’s because Harry Styles, he of the formerly long, wavy locks, has cut them off.

He let this be known in the form of an Instagram post.

The caption reads, “Whoops. #littleprincesstrust.” Styles posted the photo just a short while ago, yet his fallen follicles are already trending worldwide.

Much like Samson, many fans seem to worry that Styles’s hair might have been the source of his power-or, in Styles’s case, his sexual charisma.

The Little Princess Trust is a U.K. organization that provides wigs made of real hair for children who suffer from hair loss, so the hashtag on Styles’s photo means that he donated his hair to the charity.

Harry Styles lopped off his long locks, and the hair went to a good cause.

He might have cut his hair for his acting debut in Christopher Nolan’s World War II movie, Dunkirk.

Who knows which way the wind blows inside Harry Styles’s mind? That’s what makes him beautiful-not the length of his shiny, wavy hair.
