Harry Styles‘ new hairstyle (or lack thereof) hasn’t exactly been popular with fans since the pop star unveiled his buzz cut last week, and Mama Styles has had enough.
In a Friday (Nov. 17) Instagram post, the 29-year-old singer’s mom, Anne Twist, passionately denounced critics of her son’s shaved head. “When you consider that H has a legacy of kindness and inclusion, has always made every effort to make everyone feel seen and appreciated for exactly who they are …,” she wrote, sharing a photo of Styles sans his famous dark curls. “There’s an irony in the negativity he’s been shown for having a haircut.”
The children’s book author also included a photo of a headline alleging that fans were “shocked” by the “As It Was” singer’s new look, quoting one person as having said, “Ruined my entire life.”
“Sorry but I don’t get it 🤷🏻♀️,” Twist continued, adding a hashtag referencing Styles’ trademark “Treat People With Kindness” phrase: “#TPWK”
Twist’s post comes one week after a video emerged of Styles minus his locks enjoying a U2 concert at Las Vegas’ new Sphere venue alongside Bones and All actress Taylor Russell, his rumored girlfriend since June. Fans weren’t shy about expressing their grief over the loss of his iconic hair, many of them taking to Twitter to mourn with hilarious memes and penning emotional reactions to, in their words, “Bald Harry.”
“how tf are you gonna be named harry styles with no hair to style,” tweeted one person, while another fan wrote, “harry styles shaving his head was not in my bingo card for 2023.”
A couple days later, Styles confirmed his buzz-cut era by posing for a portrait in celebration of his brand Pleasing’s new fragrance launch.
