  • Former One Direction member Niall Horan might have actually dyed his hair blonde, again.
  • Niall’s a natural brunette but had blonde most of the time he was in 1D.
  • Fans are freaking out because of a picture of him with singer Olly Murs that surfaced on Instagram.

As all One Direction stans know, the guys of the group aren’t afraid to switch up their hairstyles from time to time. Zayn Malik has dyed his hair all the colors of the rainbow, Harry Styles just got a bowl cut, and, not to freak you out, but Niall Horan might have just dyed his hair blonde. Or, actually, it might be gray. Honestly, it’s hard to tell from the picture that just surfaced on Instagram, but his fans are fully spiraling thanks to this new development in their favorite artist’s life.

This afternoon, a fan account got their hands on a picture of Niall hanging out with singer Olly Murs. (The pic looks like it could be from Niall’s Instagram Story but has since been deleted from his account.) In the picture, Niall has one of those salon capes draped across his body so he doesn’t get his clothes messed up, and his hair is definitely much lighter than his natural brown locks.

It looks like he might have some product—possibly dye—in it and is waiting for it to get back to the blonde shade he had in 1D’s heyday. Like so:

It could also be that he dyed his hair that grayish tone you’re seeing and that’s just gel or pomade making it look that way. Again, hard to tell from this angle and without any other info, but fans are convinced he’s dying his hair blonde and are freaking out.

Basically, this tweet sums it up:


Some are guessing that this change is courtesy of his new “Nice to Meet Ya” music video, but paparazzi caught Niall at the London video shoot on Monday and his hair was brown, so it’s a mystery if this is for work or just for fun.

The video is supposed to come out later this month, so we’ll probably find out closer to the drop. Until then, just hope he’s deep-conditioning his hair to keep it from looking like straw!
