Here's The Latest Status Of One Direction's Hair

1D didn't invite their man buns to the AMAs

With two new music videos out recently, "Steal My Girl" and "Night Changes," it was hard to decide how the boys were planning to style their infamous tresses. Would Zayn rock the man bun? Would Harry attend sans hat?

Both predictions were wrong. Let's observe their looks tonight:

The boys still showed up in coordinated outfits, generally dressed in all black and looking in need of a shower, but their hair is updated.


Harry Styles

Harry kept his hair long and greasy under a hat, which is normal, but in a different hat than usual. The hat tonight is not quite fedora and not quite pork pie. Also, the especially tall feather on the side makes it seem less Mick Jagger and more magician.


Louis Tomlinson

IMHO, this is the best Louis has looked in a while. His hair in "Midnight Memories" was way long and his face unshaven, and even in "Steal My Girl" it was pretty shaggy and unkempt. Tonight, he is clean-shaven and his hair reminds me of his look during the "Live While We're Young" video. This gravity-defying pompadour is looking the best out of all of them, TBH.

Niall Horan

Is Niall not allowed to wear a suit or what? I get it that he's the casual, funny guy of the group, but I bet Team Niall would like to see a blazer more often than once a year. Nothing *that* new on the hair front here. Still very blonde, still very voluminous. But hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Zayn Malik

Zayn. All I wanted was a man bun. He seems to be maintaining the same look that he has in the "Night Changes" video. It's a borderline mullet when he gels it back like that, but it's much better than the blonde skunk highlight he used to have. Also, that little whisp at the front is very Johnny Depp circa Cry Baby, and I can't really be mad at that.

Liam Payne

Liam's hair also still looks consistent with his past appearances, which is great news because he really took a long time to let go of the shag/bowl hybrid he used to have. This look is v clean and grown-up.
