One Direction's Zayn Malik has gone from having the most sought-after hairstyle in pop to premiering brand new choppy, textured tresses in Tokyo that are more of a hair don't than a hair do!

Zayn's iconic quiff - following in the retro rockabilly footsteps of James Dean and Elvis Presley - earned him teen idol status, and his mane mistake was to mess with it.

Listen up. Zayn, hair icons have always stuck to the style that made them famous.

You didn't see Farah Fawcett swapping her 70s flicks for a blunt bob, or Marilyn Monroe ditch blonde to experiment with brunette.

And would James Dean have been considered such a bad boy if he switched up his Rebel Without A Cause quiff for a sleek side parting? Probably not.

And your bandmate Harry Styles is WAY to smart to cut his sexy mop of curls.

Note to Zayn - and his hairdresser - please ensure order is restored immediately.

Thank you. Love Now x
