Niall Horan is known for being the cute blonde boy in One Direction, but it seems he is a little tired of being the baby face of the band.
Back home in the UK, the singer decided he fancied a makeover and asked his boss if he could hit the bottle – the dye bottle that is.
Surely not a stranger to Just For Men himself, Simon Cowell shot the young lad’s hopes down in flames as he told him to stay as he is.
A source told The Sun: “Simon still controls a lot about the band down to the finest detail.
“Niall was desperate to get rid of his blonde locks and go black just for an experiment, like loads of normal teens.
“Luckily, he had the sense to ask Simon first because he knows how he works.
“He put in a text to him asking if he could change his hair colour.
“Simon was straight back on to him with a short reply, ‘No way’. ” Thank goodness for Mr. Cowell’s wise words.
Across the pond, US fans fell in love with Niall’s cheeky charm and his Irish accent.
An insider told Closer magazine: “All the boys are popular, but the girls in the U.S. seem to be absolutely obsessed with Niall.
“They love the fact he's Irish and looks like the perfect all-American boy. He gets swamped with girls wherever he goes.”
