Harry Styles, known for his Grammy winning “Harry’s House,” Madison Square Garden residency, and of course, iconic curly locks, has officially shaved his head. What began as a widespread theory on social media based on a blurry photograph has been confirmed in new photos released by TMZ.

Styles newly shaved head can be seen in new photos taken alongside his rumored girlfriend, actress Taylor Russell. 

Outside of his role in world famous boy band One Direction and his massively successful solo music career, Styles is also known for his legendary curly hair to a number of his Gen Z fans. Across TikTok, fans jokingly continue to mourn the loss of Styles’ memorable locks.

Social Media Reactions To Hairgate (Confirmed)

Some joked that the singer is now merely Styles, a play at his first name being a homonym with “hairy.”

Others chose to see the bright side of hairgate–that Styles appears to be enjoying the time he is spending with Russell.


Some report that they will need some time to grieve Styles’ classic hair, and are not entirely sold on the buzzed look just yet.

Meanwhile some fans begged to differ, believing that the singer can pull off anything.


And of course, the memes continue to pour in. Many continue to compare the singer’s new cut with a number of famous buzz cuts throughout pop culture history. Starting off strong, one X user went as far as comparing the new look to that of Syd from Disney’s “Toy Story.”

Others joked that he looked like comedian David Cross in his role as Ian Hawke in the early 200os children’s films “Alvin And The Chipmunks.”

Meanwhile, some are simply still too shocked to react. The initial buzz reveal came by way of popular gossip account deuxmoii on Instagram. An Instagram user alleged that they sent the purposely blurred image into deuxmoii to cause a stir, and the account later shared the anonymous admission was faked.

Some strong fans claimed that the new images had them sick with shock, and jokingly begged posters to delete them.

The running pun continues to emerge, with many X users sharing different angles of hairgate and stating that he should no longer be named Harry Styles, as he has no hair to style.

Despite the shockwaves, thousands are finding  the humor in the situation. Styles is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of his generation, and many continue to share memes of how they would react to their future children discovering images of a young Styles (hair and all) years from now.

It is unclear what Styles will do next, but he is undoubtedly facing a major career milestone–a test in who will keep listening when there is no hair to style, and whether he truly never goes out of style or not.
