According to The Standard a fan has said that they bumped into Harry's mum, Anne Twist, in IKEA and asked her why he chopped his hair off. Talking on TikTok the fan, called Maddie, said she asked Anne: "Has Harry shaved his head?”
Anne reportedly replied: “Yes.” Maddie continued: “My dad then said, ‘Is it for a film or is it just for a change?’”
The fan claimed Harry's mum simply replied: “It's because he's on a holiday, he fancied a change.”
And it seems that there are many in support of this change. Firstly, MTV responded to our post saying they thought Harry's new hair was "so good".
