We Really, Really Need To Talk About Harry Styles' Hair

More like Hairy Styles, am I right?

In case you have been living under an extremely large rock for the last five years, allow me to introduce you to Harry Styles. This is him:

He sings in a band called One Direction, who you might have heard of. Here they are:

Don't worry if you haven't heard of them. They're pretty obscure.

But we're not focusing on them right now. Because this is about Harry, and the one thing that nobody seems to be talking about.

Can you guess what it is yet?

You got it! It's that glorious, flowing mane of hair atop his glorious head.

Just look at it, (probably) blowing in the wind.

But that glorious mane hasn't always been as wild and free as it is now. Back in 2010, when One Direction were just forming and life as we knew it was about to change, Harry Styles' short, curly hair captured the hearts of many.


Say it with me: Awwww.

Look at it here. So youthful. So innocent. So short.

But as Harry's fame grew, so did his hair. By 2012, it was bigger than his head. By 2013, only hats could tame it.

Then there was that incredibly brief – and equally lovely – time when he wore a bandana at every available opportunity.

RIP Harry's bandana. You are sorely missed.

And as Harry's hair continued to grow, the opportunity for a man bun arose. And Harry grabbed that opportunity and ran with it.

I'll give you a minute to stare at that one.

But now it's 2015, and Harry's hair is longer than ever before. Maybe even...too long.

"Harry, mate, I think it's time for a haircut." –Liam, probably

"WHAT?!" –Harry, probably

The topic has brought about much debate among fans: Some are fond of Harry's flowing locks, while others think it's time to say goodbye.

Don't you dare and cut your hair @Harry_Styles

    It's glorious, and he should continue to let it grow until he looks like Rapunzel.

    It's getting ridiculous, and he needs to shave it all off immediately.

    I would be OK with the length if he continued to wear a man bun. BRING BACK THE MAN BUN.

    I will support any and everything Harry chooses to do with his hair, because it's always perfect.
