Liam Payne's new hair has fans swooning.
The One Direction singer, 27, sparked a flurry of fan comments after debuting the look on Instagram as he spoke to the camera.
And while he grew his hair out during the first lockdown, Liam's taken it a step further and let it fall to his shoulders.
Meanwhile, his jaw now boasts some considerable facial fur as he ditches the usual rough stubble for a fuller beard.
"Your hair is beautiful," one commented, adding a string of heart emojis just to really get the point across.
Another couldn't keep so calm, writing: "OMG YOUR HAIR IS SO BEAUTIFUL BABEEEE."

"THE HAIR," was all a third could manage.
Liam was candid in 2020 about how lockdown kept him from three-year-old son Bear, who he co-parents with ex Cheryl.
The dutiful dad told Tings magazine : "[Lockdown] it's the longest I haven't seen him [Bear] in his life.
"But we discussed from the start and for different reasons, me and Cheryl decided I should be away for a little bit.
"It's not unusual for me to be in and out of his life. He's a quiet and chill child. He doesn't worry about things to much."

And Christmas has taken on a deeper meaning for him now he's a dad, remarking: "It's all about the kids.
"The best thing about Christmas is to connect with friends and family, if you can't send a little message for Christmas, then when can you?"
Cheryl gave birth to Bear in 2017, and split from Liam the following year.
And reports emerged last year that Liam had ditched booze and eased up on partying for the sake of their toddler.

A source claimed Liam was "jolted into action" after pals warned him a hard-partying lifestyle may have an impact on Bear.
Meanwhile, Liam got engaged to Maya Henry after popping the question with a £3 million engagement ring.
"Something really hurt me," Liam told, "and it kind of made me appreciate love and people a lot more, for the longest time, living such an exposed life made dating really hard.
"I've found someone who's genuinely my best friend, she's just so relaxed about everything and someone who's completely got your back with everything is just the wildest thing."
