So, this is awkward

It takes a certain kind of man to be able to carry off pink hair – and when Zayn Malik previewed his new shocking new colour on Twitter over the weekend, he showed that he was more than capable.

However, no matter how remarkable this stylistic choice is, there’s something a little awkward about it all – the fact that his former friend, and Gigi Hadid’s ex Joe Jonas got there first!

However, many people soon brought to light the fact that he wasn’t the only star to inject a bit of colour into their hair in recent days: step forward, Joe Jonas, who revealed his freshly dyed tresses on his Instagram account on Thursday:

Joe and Gigi ended their five-month relationship in November 2015.

Perhaps to kill any comparisons, the Pillowtalk singer has now debuted a softer tone to his pink hair:
