Zayn Malik Quit One Direction, And Now His Hair

The singer makes first red carpet appearance since quitting 1D.

Zayn Malik is showing off his One Direction breakup hair.

The singer made his first red carpet appearance since quitting 1D to live a "normal" life at The Asian Awards in London on Friday (April 17).

Zayn certainly made a splash at the event, which he attended with his mom, since he was sporting not only his new nose ring, but a shaved head. That's right, Zayn's signature long locks are GONE.

It can also be hard to get used to.

But the good thing about hair is that it does grow back. For now let's take a moment to shout out some of Zayn's best long hair moments.
