Do you remember when GHDs first launched back in 2001, and everyone shunned their natural hair texture for the good part of a decade?

Although we still love our trusty GHDs, there's something to be said for letting your waves/curls/coils come through in all their glory. Khloe Kardashian gave fans a glimpse of her natural hair texture on Instagram recently, as did Perrie Edwards, who showed off gorgeous curls while promoting the new Little Mix album, Confetti.

Taylor swift has naturally curly hair, which she seems to have embraced more and more in recent years. Perhaps it's the whimsical tone of her new album, Folklore, or the fact that her fringe looks pretty awesome when left to go curly. Either way, her recent hair vibe has mostly been mussed-up and effortless, and we've loved it.

So imagine our shock when she accepted her award for Songwriter of the Year during Wednesday’s 2020 Apple Music Awards, and her hair was long and poker-straight. Did someone dust off their old hair straighteners, Taylor?

She's known for dropping cryptic hints or "Easter Eggs" for her fans, and they were quick to point out that the last time they saw her hair looking so sleek was for her Red album back in 2012 (another fan also pointed out her signature red lip).

“Could she be filming old music videos? Or album covers?” one asked.

Another exclaimed: “TAYLOR SWIFT IS BACK WITH LONG HAIR I’M SCREAMING.”

Our feelings exactly.

Let's face it, she looks amazing whatever her hair texture, but if Taylor's fans are right and the straight hair is a sign of something to come, we're preparing for some serious music nostalgia...
