It’s time to bid farewell to Harry Styles’s luscious locks. In a move sure to break hearts, the One Direction singer has chopped off his hair.

Styles revealed the haircut on Instagram in a photo of his hand holding a newly shorn braided ponytail and giving a thumbs up.

You can’t be too upset with him, though. Styles donated the hair to Little Princess Trust, a charity that makes donated hair into wigs for children who have lost their hair through cancer treatment.

One Direction are currently on an extended hiatus after releasing Made in the A.M. last year.
