See snaps from the boys' Bebo and Myspace accounts

With their perfectly coiffed hair, co-ordinated outfits and sexy smatterings of designer stubble, it’d be easy to think that One Direction have always been polished pop stars.

But we’ve unearthed some very old One Direction pictures that prove this hasn’t always been the case.

Before the were posing like professionals on red carpets at premieres with Liam Payne and Zayn Malik, Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson were taking candid snaps for social media sites.

We’ve tracked down the boys’ Bebo and Myspace accounts and have discovered a number of pretty funny photos.

Harry’s been comfortable in front of the camera long before his short brown hair developed into luscious curls.

Even without his trademark ‘do, his cheeky smile is instantly recognisable in a holiday snap he posted online.

And although Niall might hot have changed his mane much since finding fame, this wasn’t the case when he was growing up.

The Irish cutie tried everything from soft spikes to a bleached blond and brown surfer-inspired side sweep.

He also appears to be a bit of an accessories addict as a teen, working everything from a baseball cap to an army hat and thick scarf.

We just can’t help but giggle at a couple pre-One Direction pictures of Louis that we’ve stumbled across.

The chart-topper rocked a couple of questionable outfits during his days as a pupil at Doncaster’s Hayfield School.

He might have great style now but why Louis once paired a brown shirt with baggy combat trousers we’ll never know.

We much prefer the dapper black suit, classic white shirt and trendy striped tie he wore to his prom.
