Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We regret to inform you on this otherwise perfectly average Friday that Harry Styles, he of the long, majestic locks, has gotten a haircut.

Mere minutes ago, he Instagrammed a photo of said glorious locks in a ponytail, detached from his head.

Whoops. #Littleprincesstrust

There is good news, however — his hashtag reveals that he's donated his hair to the Little Princess Trust, a UK charity that provides real hair wigs for children undergoing cancer treatments. As long has Harry's hair exists on the head of someone, somewhere, all is well.
