A Definitive Ranking Of One Direction's Facial Hair Throughout The Ages
DEFINITIVE WE TELL YOU!
The world has watched One Direction transform from boys to men over the past five years, and with great puberty, comes great facial hair.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a DEFINITIVE AND ABSOLUTE ranking of their various hairy bits.
Find out who nabbed the No.1 spot below:
Bringing up the rear (BEHAVE) is Mr Harry Edward Styles and the toothpaste moustache he was seen sporting on Jimmy Kimmel Live. Yes, it’s cute – but he loses points for it not being real.
Next up? It’s gotta be youuuuu Niall Horan and his delightful ‘just a hint of stubble’. Looks slightly scratchy, which is why he’s only made it to No.11.
The first 1D beard to make it into the Top 10 (anyone who just shouted ‘TAYLOR SWIFT’ needs to go and hunt down their chill, please): it’s Harry with his itty bitty little moustache.
It’s desperately trying to be proper facial hair, but falling – literally – a bit short. Still fit though.
Liam makes his debut with his slightly patchy but obviously still lovely chin growth. We want to make a little nest in those bare patches and live there forever.
Harry and his tiny moustache are back, and they’ve scored the No. 8 spot. We sort of like that it’s possible to count each individual hair. We might even name them if we have time later.
Storming in at the No. 7 spot is Louis Tomlinson and his shaggy triumph of a beard. Look, you could stuff a pillow with that. Sorry, we don’t mean to give you any ideas.
Sitting pretty at No. 6 is Liam and a true CHAMPION of a goatee. Extra points for looking sleepy and hot.
TOP 5 TIME PEOPLE – and it’s a Harry/Liam hybrid from the 'You & I' video. Yep, this is H with Liam’s facial hair, and it’s a thing of wonder.
Louis’ stubble-beard hybrid is an aesthetic we are 100 per cent on board with, and that’s why it’s at No. 4.
Liam’s face-tuned beard is our No. 3, because despite the fact it’s been filtered so much it barely looks like hair any more, it’s also a fluffy haven of beauty.
Look, we know this is a ranking of facial hair, but can anything really beat clean-shaven Louis and his jawline of dreams? His bare chin is at No. 2 and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Niall’s beach beard. Because he went ACTUAL travelling and grew this lovely little number and it’s our fave thing since… well, probably anything really.
