This is what happens when a member of One Direction gets a hair cut

Zayn Malik got himself a new do. The fans went WILD.

WHEN YOU’RE A member of One Direction, you can’t just get a hair cut.

For the past few weeks, Zayn had been sporting rather long, Disney prince-esque locks. Well he’s chopped it all off now, and appeared at the American Music Awards last night with a teddy boy quiff not too far from Johnny Depp’s look in Cry Baby.

To be fair, it is pretty slick.

Here are eight of the most extreme reactions:









Let’s hope for Zayn’s (and the world’s) sake he leaves the hair alone for a little while. We can’t be doing this on a regular basis.
