Harry Styles has chopped off his luscious locks for a good cause.

The 22-year-old One Direction singer took to Instagram on Friday to share a photo of his hand giving the thumbs up while holding a cut ponytail with the caption, “Whoops. #Littleprincesstrust.”

Whoops. #Littleprincesstrust

It seems the singer is using his time off during 1D’s current hiatus to do good for the Little Princess Trust organization, which is a cancer charity in the U.K. for kids, according to its website.

“Our mission is to supply real hair wigs to children suffering with cancer, for the duration of their treatment,” the site reads.

While Styles' big change is clearly coming from the heart, some of his fans were disappointed to see his signature hair go.

“I'm laying on the floor crying,” one user wrote.

“Really you cut your hair!!!” another said.

However, others are thrilled over his generous deed.

“What a great cause,” a commenter said, while many others called him an “angel.”

Styles spoke to ET back in November on whether or not One Direction was headed towards a permanent split.

"I think it's important for us to take the break and have it as a break," Styles told ET at the time. "Obviously it would be naive of us to think that people aren't going to read into that in a ton of different ways, but we're just gonna take a little break next year."

Styles has yet to post a photo debuting his shorter, new ‘do. Stay tuned.
