The boy band performed their biggest hit and became the talk of the night

We love One Direction and it was so exciting to see the boys at the London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony.

Two years ago, before The X Factor 2010, they were unknowns and now they’re performing with British greats like The Pet Shop Boys, Take That and the Spice Girls. Go, 1D!

What really caught our attention on Sunday night as they sang What Makes You Beautiful on a moving truck, was their hair.

Harry Styles, 18, and Louis Tomlinson, 20, went for a more messed-up version of their usual shaggy styles.

Liam Payne, 18, showed off his new shorter ‘do and Niall Horan, 18, and Zayn Malik sported brand new looks.

Niall’s textured quiff and spiky hairdo was a very sexy change from his usual sideswept fringe and really made him stand out.

But the 1D makeover winner has to be Zayn, 19, who has a new blond-tinted quiff. 

Zayn really rocked it up, making his new streaky fringe stand out with a stylish fedora.

Can the One Direction boys get any cuter?
