13 GIFs Of Zayn Malik’s Beautiful Hair In Action

He's got a new 'do, you guys.

Those who don’t follow the every move of One Direction as closely as we at MTV do may have missed some breaking news from early this morning: Zayn Malik has a new ’do. I repeat, Zayn Malik has changed his hair. He’s also grown some more on his face. Changes are rampant above Zayn’s neck, y’all.

Zayn has been laying low during One Direction’s break from touring—and experimenting with new looks for the North American leg of the tour, it seems. Instead of the closely cropped side and well-styled top ’do we’ve come to know and love from Mr. Malik, he emerged in London last night with a longer style that was expertly swept across his forehead.

In order to properly mark the momentous occasion, we figured it’d only be right to round up GIFs that pay homage to the beautiful, thick, dark stuff attached to his scalp. Happy Friday—our GIFt (heh, get it?) is below!
