As he walks away from the One Direction and prepares for his new life as a “normal” 22-year-old, we look back at Zayn Malik’s hairstyle highlights from the last few years. As one fifth of the most talked about band in pop, Zayn has played a huge role in influencing men’s style. He may have been the shyest member of the group, but he has plenty of confidence when it comes to experimenting with different hair trends.
At the Los Premios 40 Principales Awards in Spain last December Zayn’s locks had clearly grown out a bit as he opted for this slicked back low-pony we’re more used to seeing on footballers than popstars! On anyone else we’d probably give this a thumbs down but Zayn has just about convinced us it’s cool! The key to nailing this look? Zero frizz – a slick of American Crew Superglue through damp hair is a guy’s best friend for this style.
This is one of our favourite styles from Mr. Malik. Full, soft hair and so easy to style – what man wouldn’t want hair like that? A must for thicker, fuller-feeling hair is Kérastase Homme Bain Capital Force Shampoo which helps improve the density of fine or thinning hair in just two weeks. Keep that added thickness going and run Redken Aerate through wet hair to add lift and control without weighing it down.
