Rather than give the world what it wants (a photo of his hair-less face), Styles teasingly posted a picture of his very dead ponytail.

Whoops. #Littleprincesstrust

His hashtag refers to the Little Princess Trust organization that makes wigs for kids with cancer, meaning that Harry Styles is a nice guy and donated his ponytail. Now teenage girls have yet another reason to love him.

While this is certainly a move they appreciate for its charitable angle, his fanbaseis struggling to balance the conflicted emotions of pride and sadness, for they are in deep mourning over the singer's hair.

There's no photographic evidence yet that the hair came from Styles's head, so keep breathing deeply, young One Directioners.

Unless you're pro-Harry-without-hair, which some are.

This shit storm is just a preview of what'll happen to Twitter when One Direction announces that they're not simply on hiatus, but that they're kaput.
