Last night on Twitter a curious fan begged the 18-year-old heartthrob to tell his 2,501,365 followers the secret of how his hair became so curly.
'Cause I ate my crusts,' Tweeted Harry in reply, with his tongue firmly in his cheek.
Not surprisingly, Harry's admirers weren't totally convinced by his answer.
'@Harry_Styles but i eat my crusts too, why am i not curly? :|' said one.
Another added: '@Harry_Styles crusts are nasty ew and i have wavy hair.'
