It looks like Zayn Malik is the next celeb to don a drastic new ‘do during quarantine! Malik dyed his signature dark hair platinum blonde, and his fans quickly got “Blonde Zayn” trending on social media.
The "Pillow Talk" singer stepped out in New York for the first time since he welcomed his daughter with Gigi Hadid in September. The 27-year-old sported a yellow quilted jacket with matching yellow sneakers, black pants and a black face mask.
This isn’t the first time the former One Direction member has donned blonde hair, and the look seems to be a fan-favorite.
"blonde zayn is exactly what i needed to see today thank u," one user gushed. "BLONDE ZAYN STANS WHERE ARE YOU AT TODAY IS OUR DAY WE WON !!!!!!!" another exclaimed.
"zayn malik absolutely rocks blonde hair," another said, adding a collection of Malik’s blonde locks over the years.
Meanwhile, Malik’s fans have proven again that they will defend him no matter what as they slammed One Direction’s former hairstylist, Lou Teasdale, when she shared that Malik, Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson had slept with their female crew.
"Some people would come in and think it’s love, but it’s not, and it’s the quickest way to lose your job," she spilled. "Then the boys would have a new girlfriend, she’s there and they don’t want you in the room."
"F**k you lou teasdale, this is so disgustingly invasive and gross. Even if this is true, you have no right to speak about them like this," one angry fan wrote, while others warned fellow fans to unfollow Teasdale.
However, Malik and the rest of this former One Direction bandmates have not commented on the matter.
Malik and Hadid have been keeping a low profile since the arrival of their daughter. The pair has been living in a Penthouse in Manhattan, and Hadid regularly posts adorable updates about their little girl, whose name is still unknown.
"Our baby girl is here, healthy & beautiful," Malik announced on September 23, with a photo of his baby’s hand. "To try put into words how I am feeling right now would be an impossible task."
"The love I feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding. Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x," he added.
Malik isn’t the only one to drastically change his hair in 2020. Demi Lovato cut her long dark locks and switched to a blonde pixie cut after her split from Max Ehrich, while Joe Manganiello rocked a bright blue mohawk last month.
