How to get cool hair like Niall Horan at the AMAs

Look who's all grown up...  

It seems that Niall Horan has definitely grown out of his youthful, boyband looks. In fact, the ex-One Directioner shocked us all yesterday at the American Music Awards with his subtle blonde, brushed-up quiff, teamed with a dapper pair of glasses.

Maybe it was because he knew he might bump into his former friend-in-music Zayn? (Well, we’re just speculating here!). But if you want to know how to recreate it, all you have to do is scroll down to discover the hair secrets behind this cool ‘do.

  1. To nail this Niall Horan hairstyle, start with nice, clean hair. Towel-dry your hair until it’s damp, then apply some of the VO5 Thicken gelFoam to your hair before roughly blow-drying it.
  2. Once you’ve created your natural lift and texture with the VO5 foam, grab a small amount (roughly the size of your fingertip) of the Lynx Adrenaline Super Hold Cream Gel, and carefully work it into the front your hair in an upwards motion.
  3. Use a comb if needed to finish the look. You can use it to help direct your hair slightly to the left of right. And there: your Niall Horan hairstyle is complete!
