Zayn Malik has shaved his head completely bald. The Pillowtalk singer debuted the dramatic new look in a picture posted to social media on Sunday, by his mum Trisha. In the snap, Trisha is seen kissing Zayn's bald head, while his girlfriend Gigi Hadid smiles widely as her beau pouts for the camera.
The transformation came as quite a shock for the singer's fans considering that Gigi's mother Yolanda Hadid had shared a picture of Zayn on the family farm on Friday, in which the 24-year-old had a short buzz cut.
"Summer Loving...#Family," Yolanda captioned the picture of herself with Gigi, Zayn, and Trisha, with a horse attempting to photobomb the shot in the background.
The bald look is the latest in a series of dramatic changes in appearance for Zayn. He has previously experimented with pink locks and rainbow-hued hair and explained during a previous interview with Complex magazine that he embraced the opportunity to switch his looks up after leaving One Direction.
Speaking to the publication about his time in the band, Zayn explained: "There were certain restrictions in terms of the way that we could come outside of that young teen boy look. Mainly my beard, honestly. I wasn't allowed to keep it. Eventually, when I got older, I rebelled against it, and decided to keep it anyway. That was just because I looked older than the rest of them.
"That's one of the things that is now quite cool. I get to keep my beard. I also wanted to dye my hair when I was in the band, but I wasn't allowed to."
