28 Harry Styles Hair Photos That Show His Evolution From Sideswoop To Shaggy

We —as in me and you— may be iffy about his smattering of his seemingly disconnected, stick 'n' poke-looking tattoos, which cover his body. But one thing we likely agree about is the perfection that is his hair! Harry Styles' hair, the length of which fans have been feverishly discussing, is something to marvel at. The One Direction hunk has steadily evolved from the sideswoop that wasn't too Bieber-like to his current shaggy style. Along the way, Styles, now 22, has dated a singer (Taylor Swift), a Jenner (Kendall), and copied a Rolling Stone (guitarist Keith Richards, during a 2013 phase!) But the singer's hair constantly morphs and he often culls inspo from himself, mashing up old "Styles" with new.

Styles has mastered that slightly disheveled, a bit rumpled, and just rolled outta bed coif style. He's been rocking a shoulder-skimming shag of varying lengths as of late. But it doesn't really matter how long or short the singer goes with his strands. He always looks darling and effortless, like he spent no time thinking about or styling his hair. So, yeah, his follicles are the epitome of "I woke up like this."

But it's time for us to take a long look back at Styles' fabulous locks. Try not to overdose on all of this cuteness in one place.

1. The Sideswoop Pouf

When One Direction first arrived on the scene, Styles and his hair were already precious. Look at the perfectly sideswooped, poufy coif. It fell in line with dude hair trends in 2010.

2. Clean Sweep

So. Much. Hair. Styles' owned that clean sweep and he was all about volume back in the one-oh. It resembled an asymmetrical bob.

3. Longing

In 2011, Styles and his bandmates were dapper. He and Liam Payne had the biggest hair. Styles' was a bit longer in length, though.

4. Curly Cues

2012 was Styles' year. 1D were blowing up and he was dating Taylor Swift. He had to have perfect hair and he did. He ditched the side swoop and embraced shorter, curlier locks.

5. Curl Perfection
