Niall Horan was the blond member of One Direction for years, even though he's a natural brunette. Now that the band is on hiatus for the foreseeable future, the "This Town" singer has been growing out his hair — and his trademark blond tresses are almost totally gone.
The pop star shared a selfie on Snapchat showing off burgeoning brown locks and a growing beard, and it's a whole new look. New era, new hair.
Since Nialler's selfie is a little bit shadowy, it could be a trick of the light. His tips are still visibly blond. However, this is the most brunette fans have seen his hair in a while. Cue a major Directioner freakout!
