Zayn Malik Fans Have An Interesting Theory About His New Hair
After spotting Zayn Malik with new bleached blonde hair just before Christmas, his fans starting going into overdrive about what it all means.
Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid were spotted in New York City, their first public appearance since welcoming their daughter in late September.
Fans loved Zayn’s blonde hair and commented that it harked back to his ‘Entertainer’ days (the single he released in 2018).
Some even went so far as to speculate that the new blonde hair is a sure sign that new music is on the way …
In fact, one enthusiastic fan compiled images of Malik in bleached looks and posted to Twitter with the caption: “blonde hair zayn always happens when theres a new music video coming.”
But what do the pros think of Zayn’s new look?
“Zayn is the latest celebrity to opt for a whiter, blonder look for winter. It’s the perfect change of colour for the colder months – platinum, bleached blonde doesn’t suit everyone but guarantees to turn heads. And the best bit is, it soon grows out of he decides he doesn’t like it!”
“Bleaching short hair has been a popular style choice for celebrities over the years who are looking for an instant and fast transformation. It’s always important to let your barber or colourist apply the colour to ensure it doesn’t turn yellow or look patchy. It’s not a look for everyone, and does require a degree of upkeep, but it always turns heads.”

“Zayn Malik has paved the way for those boys who are thinking of a change, a great look for him, and simply because the toner is a white silver blonde which works for his skin tone and so cool on a man. When lifting from a dark base, you must be prepared to take some time, and possibly 2 applications to achieve a clean lift with the bleach, to get really clean white
blondes, otherwise you have the risk of having yellow undertones which cheapens the overall colour, or you will need to drop the level of the blonde to a deeper tone, and then losing the impact that Zayn has created from his new look.”

“Zayn has gone for a bleached look as well as a new haircut – the modern Mohawk. Tight through the sides and textured through the top, it’s the perfect combination to welcome in the New Year. Clients who have grown their hair might want to update into this longer length, using pastes to enhance the texture.”
