Former One Direction singer Zayn Malik looked unrecognisable as he wowed fans and followers with his transformation from a clean-cut boyband star to a surfer dude complete with curly locks and full beard.
The 29-year-old showed off his natural curly hair and let his normal stubble grow out into a full beard, complete with a yellow hoodie with a graphic print design, on the front in the picture on Instagam.
It came as the star revealed the latest selection of his clothing collection, Paynt By Zayn, was available to buy.
“2 weeks left to get my Paynt By Zayn collection before it’s gone! Link in bio,” he wrote.
Zayn said on his Twitter account: “Excited to share my first ever limited edition merchandise collection that I designed from my own paintings and artwork.”
Fans were divided with his current look.
One said: “ZAYN U NEED TO SHAVE But okay ilove you anyway!”
Another wrote: “Love the grizzly look. You look sexy.”
Although some of his fans were sure he had named the collection after Liam Payne, his former One Direction bandmate.
“By Zayn. ICONIC,” one wrote, as others referenced the alleged spat between the two singers. “I’d add a t so it’s not obvious,” another added.
Zayn has reportedly had a high-profile split from supermodel Gigi Hadid.
The couple, who share daughter Khai, separated last year after it was alleged Zayn had an altercation with Gigi’s mother Yolanda Hadid.
The star shared a surprise clip of himself singing One Direction’s hit You & I on Instagram, prompting rumours that the band – who went into shutdown in 2016 – would be getting back together.
