It feels like it’s been forever since we last saw Harry Styles out and about in his oversize half-buttoned tropical tops and undersize skinny jeans with his formerly shoulder-length mop wafting in the breeze. That’s probably because he’s been busy transitioning into the role of a serious thespian for his new WWII film Dunkirk, chopping off all his hair in the process. But for those in desperate search of their Harry fix, the newly launched men’s publication from AnOther, Another Man, just debuted three new covers featuring the pop star in various stages of hair length and baring a striking resemblance to Mick Jagger.
This is truly a bittersweet moment because though we are all once again gifted with the opportunity to gaze upon the 1Directioner who has been staying out of the limelight for the past year, the first image the magazine revealed, shot by Willy Vanderperre, shows Harry with his long locks once again in tact. In the shot, Harry gazes coyly over this shoulder wearing a red suit and a leather collar with a few rogue strands across his face.
But just as Harry’s hair giveth, so does it taketh away.
Just as you were starting to regain a sense of normalcy, the magazine’s second cover comes along to upset you all over again. In the second black and white cover, shot by Alasdair McLellan, Harry once again does his best young Mick Jagger impression (which it could be argued is more of his general state of existence), mugging for the camera in a fair isle turtleneck and bowl cut.
On the third cover, we finally get an up-close look at the retro forties cut he got for the film.
For his final cover photographed by Ryan McGinley, Harry shows off his newly short-cropped, shaved-side do giving a smize worthy of every cover of Tiger Beat in a fuzzy brown striped sweater and yet another leather dog collar. We’re happy to have Harry back, even if we have to relive the heartbreak of his haircut all over again.
