Sound the trumpets! At long last (an excruciating four days or so), Harry Styles has finally unveiled his short haircut to the world.

After announcing that he chopped his luscious locks for charity on May 6, the former One Direction member, 22, stepped out on Tuesday, May 10, with his trimmed brown tresses peaking out from under a black newsboy cap.

While, thanks to that villainous hat, his new style (parted to one side? A mini mohawk?) is partially hidden, we can see the length. It barely reaches the nape of his neck, but the sides curl over his ears.

The haircut is a huge transformation for the British boy bander, as he's maintained an enviable mop of curls — sometimes as long as his shoulders — since he first hit the scene in 2010 on The X Factor.

Which is why countless fans completely lost it when he snipped his famed mane. (The tweets alone!) Nevertheless, he did cut for a cause, as he captioned the photo, "Whoops," with the hashtag #Littleprincesstrust, an organization devoted to providing real-hair wigs to children who have lost their hair to cancer treatment.
