The One Direction singer gets on well with baby Lux's mum

Harry Styles has always been fond of One Direction‘s hairdresser Lou Teasdale and now the mum-of-one is believed to be single.

Lou is reported to have split from long-term boyfriend Tom Atkin – dad to her daughter Lux, 2 – despite him writing that he ‘loved’ her on an Instagram post in March. 

Lou, 30, started cutting 1D‘s locks in 2010 and she and Harry, 20, like to hang out.

‘They do everything together. They’re very close,’ says an insider.

Harry does adore older women but Lou isn’t ready to move on.

‘There’s a chance Lou and Tom will sort things out, but Harry‘s supporting Lou for now. They’re having big hearts-to-hearts all the time,’ says the pal.

Lou‘s devastated and her priority is Lux, but she’s grateful to have Harry in her life – he’s good at cheering her up.’
