The members of our favorite boy bands have changed a ton over the years! From The Beatles to NSYNC and One Direction, we’ve rounded up the best before-and-after pics. Check it out!
Boy bands like NSYNC, 98 degrees, the Jonas Brothers barely resemble the guys they once were, and usually this is a GREAT thing (lookin’ at you, Nick Jonas). The appearances of each band’s individual members have changed drastically over the years, from Harry Styles‘ hairstyle to NKOTB‘s fashion sense — click through our gallery to see how everyone looked then and now!
First up is the band that started it all: The Beatles! Formed in Liverpool, England in 1960, members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr are widely considered the be one of the most influential bands of all time. With their shaggy haircuts and smart suits, the quartet was instant heartthrob material. Of course, George and John have sadly passed away, but Ringo and Paul are still going strong.
The JoBros will forever be one of our fave family groups, though they’ve all since gone in separate directions. Nick went from a huge head of curls and Ed Hardy shirts to a closely shaven head and leather jackets, and Joe has recently taken to rocking a rainbow of hair colors. As for Kevin, well, he’s more or less the same. He does sometimes have a beard now. And kids.
Of course, we can’t skip over One Direction. Though the band has shrunk from five to four (thanks, Zayn), we’ve got to admit that all of its members have gotten significantly hotter. Basically, everyone has better hair and fashion sense now. That’s what makes them beautiful!
