Harry Styles' Short Hair Was A Big Clue About His New Solo Career — PHOTOS

The internet was basically broken (and so were all of our hearts) when Harry Styles cut his hair, but everything has since recovered and was functioning as normal until the latest news. It’s been reported that Harry Styles is going solo which has probably left you asking all sorts of questions, one of which is did Harry Styles change his hair for his solo career? It’s definitely a likely possibility.

Break out a carton of ice cream and let’s examine the facts. The ice cream is to make you feel better about the unraveling of your favorite boy band while you retrace the steps, of course. In reality, we should have seen this coming the moment Styles chopped his hair off. But don't feel bad if you didn't. After all, even though Styles was reportedly recording new music, we couldn’t have dreamed it’d be without Niall and the rest of the gang, right? Anyways, don’t beat yourself up about it.

He first cut his hair and revealed that it was going to charity. So, we were able to get over the initial shock because at least it was for a good cause, you know? Then, it came to light that his new ‘do was for his role in the movie Dunkirk . But, if you think about what happened right around the time Zayn Malik launched his solo career, it becomes clear that we should have taken this cropped coiff as a sign.

Malik's always had a debonaire look. When he was with the band, he kept his sides short with length on the top, for the most part.

But, right after announcing his solo career, he showed up to the Asian Awards with a buzz cut. Gasp!

It got a little more drastic once he started experimenting with color, too.

But, he seems to be a little closer to the Malik we knew before now. Only, you know, he's still singing alone (tear!).

Now let's take a look at the current subject of our hair/solo career obsession. Styles has always been the one known for his hair.

Because I mean, those locks of his were pretty perfect.

The longer, the better, IMO.

His hair had gotten pretty lengthy.

But then, everything started to change.

We thought he had chopped his locks for his new movie role.

Little did we know, it could have been about so much more than that. Also, I have to assume this means Styles and Malik are still in cahoots.

RIP Styles' hair and the band that used to be. You will be missed!
