The growing out and chopping off of Harry Styles' hair is a saga we know very well. In the early days of One Direction, we fixated on the singer's perfect ringlet curls, and we gradually watched them grow longer and more unruly, quite in the same way we were growing up right along with them. We had the shock of a lifetime (though we should have really seen it coming, TBH) when the star chopped off an entire ponytail's length of former curls to donate to charity, all thanks to his role in the movie Dunkirk.
Well, everyone, we're now in a new era of fangirling over Harry's hair. We are officially in a phase of rebirth. An evolution of sorts. The whole cycle coming full circle. Because we must announce, gleefully, yet with a single unwept tear in the corner of our left eye, that Harry's curls are growing back.

It's almost like it's 2013 again. Simpler times.
We knew that this day too would come, as we academically understand that even when ponytails are shockingly severed on, say, the sixth of May, two thousand and sixteen, they will grow back. But look at us all, reduced to sobbing messes when spotting a wisp curling back around Harry's ear.

Harry debuted this hairstyle at the Kings of Leon concert, where he reportedly crossed paths with Kendall Jenner, so make of that news what you will.
