Others were surprised that they never thought they would see “the ‘Harry Styles has shaved his head’ headline.”
The English heartthrob debuted his new hairstyle on a date night with his girlfriend Taylor Russell, just days after rumors swirled that he had chopped off his luscious curls.
While out and about with 29-year-old Russell and a group of friends, the three-time Grammy winner was spotted without his signature hairstyle as he listened to the Irish rock band perform their biggest hits.
During the concert, Styles put his arm around his lover and reportedly spent the night exchanging “lots of little kisses” and taking selfies together, according to TMZ.
At one point, their group of friends danced in a circle “towards the end of the night.”
After gossip site DeuxMoi shared an image of Styles’ new look, some fans started wondering if his ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift had something to do with it.
Harry and Taylor had a brief romance between 2012 and 2013, during which time she wrote her album 1989, with fans long speculating that some of the songs were about their romance.
