This is not a drill! There is actual behind-the-scenes video of Harry Styles cutting off INCHES of his hair back in May of 2016. We can’t control our excitement!
Harry Styles, 23, released a short film called Harry Styles: Behind The Album on Apple Music on May 15. During the movie, there is actual video footage of the haircut heard ’round the world! Harry covers his eyes as his hairstylist brings his chest-length hair into a ponytail and then CHOPS IT OFF at the nape of his neck. Holding the ponytail, Harry says: “That’s so much hair!”
Harry is simultaneously interviewed in present time, and tells the camera: “I was the one with the long hair. I’d had it for so much of One Direction. Cutting it off felt very much like starting fresh.” Later, he laughs: “I was about to personify my hair and I decided not to.” We FREAKED when Harry cut his hair, but we feel better watching this, because he looks super nervous!
Harry tells the camera in the film: “After One Direction, I forced myself to take some time off and do absolutely nothing. I spent a lot of time at home with my family…I made myself get bored. Which was nice, but also made me realize very quickly that I wanted to start writing. I was dying to get in the studio.” Now that his album is here, we are so happy he went back to the studio! Watch the entire film now on Apple Music!
