The boys of One Direction are almost as famous for their gravity-defying high hairstyles as they are for their tunes! Now, heartthrob Zayn is sporting a sexy shag. What do YOU think of his new look? Vote!

Zayn Malik, 20, commemorated the start of his band’s tour of Japan with this shaggy new ‘do. Free of his signature sky-scraping volume and edgy blond streak, his new look is more laid back and low maintenance than we’re used to! Do YOU love his style switcheroo, or are you missing his stylish quiff?

Zayn’s inky black style is a simple departure from his famous styled quiff, but the difference is so striking. This casual, fluffy style emphasizes Zayn’s baby face more than ever, and brings all our attention to his deep, dark eyes!

This isn’t the first time that Zayn has tried to simplify his high maintenance style. In attempts to cut down his styling time and embrace a wash and wear style, Zayn has even considered shaving his head like One Direction’s Liam Payne! We’re so glad that he spared his locks and opted for this bedhead ‘do! His textured crop has endless styling potential!

Fans of Zayn’s transforming hair can be found far and wide — and even within One Direction! Bandmate Harry Styles recently told Now Magazine that if he could steal any part of Zayn’s style, “I would probably steal Zayn’s hair. I think it looks cool.” We wonder if he feels the same way about Zayn’s new look!

HollywoodLifers, do YOU think Zayn should switch back to his signature quiff?
