Our favorite singing heartthrobs have been busy switching up their strands lately. First, Justin Bieber sported platinum side bangs and controversial cornrows. Zayn Malik added blond ombré tips to his jet-black mohawk. And now, his former bandmate Niall Horan has the Internet losing their chill over his hair.
Here's the deal: Niall (the only blond in One Direction) was born with naturally brown locks. He was recently spotted out with a darker mane, which he carefully tried to hide under a baseball cap (sneaky, Niall). Fans caught the change in his appearance and took to Twitter to express their excitement with the hashtag #brunetteniall.
The band is currently on a hiatus, and many 1Ders were hoping that Niall would ditch the blond and return from the break embracing his natural hair color. While his darker locks might just be an illusion caused by poor lighting, we think that Niall may have very well granted his fans' wishes.
