Liam Payne showed off his new hair as he took over the BBC’s Radio 1 for the whole day with his bandmates of One Direction on Saturday (October 6, 2012). The pop star had a sharp look after shaving off all his hair, cropping his trademark floppy locks down into a tidy buzz cut. 1D singer Liam Payne has probably been the most hair experimental in the popular band as he has rocked a number of different styles from mushroom top, curly lid, quaffed, combed over and now stubbly. It was said that the young star sheared off his hair to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month or to differentiate himself from the other, elaborately hair styled boyband members. Meanwhile, some fans thought that his recent split from long-term girlfriend Danielle Peazer could have been behind the restyle. However, one fifth of One Direction Liam Payne, who is rumoured to date X-Factor beauty Leona Lewis now, revealed a much less thought-about reason for the crop. Appearing with One Direction on Daybreak on Friday (October 5, 2012), Liam shared when asked why he had changed his hair: “I just fancied it for the day, I dunno!” The look really made the 19-year-old star stand out in the crowd, as the other four band members all had much longer hair.
Liam Payne hits the 2012 BBC Radio 1 Teen Awards with his new shaved hair on Sunday (October 7, 2012). His band One Direction win three awards for Best British Single, Best Album and Best Music Act.

Liam Payne arrives at the BBC’s Radio 1 on Saturday (October 6, 2012). He is also thought to date 27-year-old singer Leona Lewis after admitting he has a crush on the X-Factor beauty. However, Liam still insists he is still single.
The One Direction heartthrob looks mature with his new short hair. The singer goes for the shaved head look because it saves him around 30 minutes each morning.
Liam has rocked different hairstyles and now he shears off all his luscious locks. “I was doing a photoshoot for a certain magazine, and they said what can we do with your hair, and I was like, shave it off. We went shorter, and shorter, and this is it,” Liam explains the reason for his hair-shave decision. “I have naturally quite curly hair, so I had to straighten it every morning with a hairdryer.”
