They’ve been cultivating the rugged look over the last few months.
But it seems that the One Direction boys have decided to smarten up their act and go all clean-shaven… sporting brand new looks at their concert in New York on Monday night.
YES – WE’RE FREAKING OUT TOO.
Zayn Malik, 21, who only debuted his new haircut and shaggy beard last week, was clearly bored of it already as he’d shaved ALL of his facial hair off.
WE REPEAT: ZAYN’S FACIAL HAIR IS COMPLETELY GONE.
He also ditched the flat-hair look, spiking it all up for the New Jersey gig, showing off his amazingly chiseled jaw for the whole world to see!
But while we think he looked pretty darn awesome, the reaction was mixed among Directioners… who were already pining for the beard on Twitter.
One fan wrote: “i dont get sad when zayn shaves because his beard will start growing 50 seconds after it and turn into a mini golf course by the next hour.”
Another added: “When zayn grows his beard he looks hot and badass af but when he shaves he looks like a royal hella rich prince im out.”
But it wasn’t just Zayn who had been getting handy with the razor as Liam sported a dramatically shorter hair do.
Been having one mega grooming sesh, boys?
Liam Payne, who’s been forced to hit back against weight criticism this week, showed off the new shaved look as he jumped around the stage.
But while some fans liked Liam’s new look, others were less than happy about it, praying for it to grow back ASAP.
One person posted: “am i the only one a bit gutted liam had his hair cut again:(“
Hair grows, people. Hair grows.
