Floppy, erect, trimmed or bushy; Zayn Malik’s hair is a thing of wonder. Over the years the lad’s experimented in everything from the infamous badger quiff to Aladdin-esque tresses, so we reckon it’s about time to look back at el Maliko’s hairvolution 2010-2015.
THE HAIRVOLUTION OF ZAYN MALIK
Ah, the first time Zayn’s fetus face popped up on our tellyboxes. It was all a bit Blazin’ Squad back then, but the best was yet to come…
The X Factor’s in full swing and Lou Teasdale’s hard at work behind the scenes on the makings of the quiff. Hairspray ahoy.
On the flop. Still would.
Nice little side-sweep you’ve got goin’ on there, babes. We’re calling this one the Leaning Tower of Freeze Hold (Hairspray). Or something.
A *bit* of a trim for the 2011 BRITs. Well dapps.
OH CHRIST, THE BADGER QUIFF HAS ARRIVED. It’s basically Danny Zuko: Reborn and it’s bloody beautiful.
Ooh, you remind us of a young Calum Hood…
Pointy and per-fect
CAN WE BE YOUR HAND PLEASE
Right – he’s had a trim, the blonde’s been binned and he’s on this fringe kinda vibe
Oh, the Tokyo press conference look. A CLASSIC. Underrated fave, this one.
Is it just us, or with every pic are you saying ‘This is his best look’…’No wait THIS is his best look’? Yup, same.
Shaved sides, brilliantly bouffant-y. Cannot cope.
Retuuuurrrn of the quiff
It’s like Justin Bieber, High School Musical-era Zac Efron and all of 5SOS had a six-way orgy or something <3
Ah, our first introduction to the rather short-lived Aladdin era. We’re verging on Veronica Malik territory, but that’s cool.
Introducing a hair band at this point. No regrets.
THAT SINGLE STRAND THOUGH
And here we are – present day, perfect Zayn post-mop chop. Where next, eh? Liam Payne buzzcut? Platinum blonde a la Nialler? Who knows?
