The Reason Behind Kate Middleton's Haircut Will Warm Your Heart

The Duchess' beauty move was for an important cause.

When Kate Middleton cut off seven inches of hair in 2017, it was for a very important reason. And, nope: it wasn't because she simply had to try the lob that all of Hollywood was getting. In fact, the Duchess' chop had a philanthropic mission at its core. 

Here's how the story goes: Last summer, the royal mama summoned her longtime hairdresser Joey Wheeler to Kensington Palace for a routine chop. But, instead of merely sweeping up the glossy tresses that fell from her head, Middleton suggested that the leftover strands should be sent to the Little Princess Trust.

The charity creates wigs for children who are battling cancer, and thus accepts donations of human hair. And, Middleton isn't the charity's only famous patron ...

Harry Styles has also donated some famous locks for the important cause! At the time, the singer even posted a photo of his severed braid, and wrote the cheeky caption "whoops!"

Whoops. #Littleprincesstrust

Though Middleton and Styles both have all the fame and money a person could ask for, they both have good heads on their shoulders. Literally!
