Anne Twist, 56, recently took to Instagram to defend her son after he debuted a brand-new hairstyle.

Fans first spotted his shaved head at a Las Vegas U2 concert he attended with his rumored girlfriend, Taylor Russell.

Then, on Wednesday, the 29-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer took control of the narrative and officially revealed his new buzzcut in an Instagram post for his Pleasing beauty brand.

The caption read, "Our Founder, Harry Styles, toasts the launch of Pleasing Fragrance with friends in London. November, 2023."

Harry's hairstyles over the years have always been a main character in his career like his earliest days in One Direction.

Now, the literal buzz over his head quickly went viral, and while several fans appreciated the new style, the British superstar received a lot of questionable criticism for the look.

On Friday morning, Harry's mom, Anne, responded to the fans' criticism, highlighting the hypocrisy of ignoring his brand's message of "treating people with kindness."

"When you consider that H has a legacy of kindness and inclusion, has always made every effort to make everyone feel seen and appreciated for exactly who they are," she wrote in an Instagram post. "There's an irony in the negativity he's been shown for having a haircut. 🤷🏻‍♀️#TPWK"

Anne is known for not playing around when it comes to Harry, as she defended the "As It Was" singer last year against critics of Don't Worry Darling.

"If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all," she wrote on an Instagram Story. "I'm astounded and saddened by the vitriolic comments on here to be honest. I enjoyed a film. If it's not your cup of tea don't go..."

Many "Harries" aka fans, had words of praise for the fierce mother of two.

Anne is also mother to Harry's older sister, Gemma Styles, 32.

people have to learn to mind their own business and not make comments on choices on their not own bodies
@annetwist / Via
harry was a legacy of creating a safe place for people to be whoever they want to be without judgment or hate and this is how people repay that
@annetwist / Via
its actuallly insane how many people have chalked up his talent and personality to his hair
@annetwist / Via
tell them anne!
@annetwist / Via
if people are a fan of H just for his hair then they can politely keep walking
@annetwist / Via
thanks for speaking out!

So, talk mess about Harry if you want to, but when Mama Bear reads you for filth — that's on you, boo.
