Harry and George have similar 'dos

Harry Styles gave Union J‘s George Shelley some advice on picking up the ladies when One Direction went backstage at The X Factor last week.

The 1D singer, 18, told George – who’s been described as a Harry lookalike – never to cut off his curly locks because girls love them.

Harry and George swapped numbers after the meeting as the two groups are bound to start bumping into each other around the scene,’ says a source.

Harry sees a lot of himself in George, so wanted to pass on a jokey text revealing his own secret.’

The rest of One Direction also had some tips for the Union J boys, with Louis Tomlinson telling them to ‘just be yourselves’ and Liam Payne saying they should ‘go out there and have fun’.

But it seems it was Harry‘s words of wisdom that stuck in 19-year-old George‘s mind.

George was laughing and showed the text to a couple of people,’ the insider tells the Daily Mirror.

‘But I’d say there’s no way he’ll be going for any drastic haircuts from now on.’
