Niall Horan has sent his fans into a tizzy after dyeing his hair BROWN!

One Direction star Niall Horan is no longer a blonde bombshell – The Irish stud is now a brunette!

New year, new Niall!
 
The 1D band member has changed his hair colour – opting for a much darker tone…
 
Like, we’re talking chocolate brown.
 
It’s quite a change from the way we’ve grown to know and love him – after first meeting him just over five years ago on X Factor as a cute little blondey.

The 22-year-old was spotted trying to sneak out of LAX airport last night with out anyone seeing him. Unfortunately for him the hair change and sports cap was not enough to keep the fans away.

Niall has spoken before about the difficulties of his fame. He told ‘Fabulous’ magazine that he has thought about ways of escaping the attention from fans and paparazzi:

“I did think about [dyeing] my hair brown so I won’t get recognised, but I genuinely believe that if I’m on my own with my mates from home, no one will give me a second look.”

Niall also told his twitter followers that he enjoyed staying out of the lime light:

"Currently really enjoying doing nothing ….just chilling out for a while is good …..Hey guys just to let ya know , I’m still here don’t worry. Just keeping my head down and enjoying the break , hope you understand . Love you”

Selena Gomez and Niall Horan were apparently busted kissing at mate Jenna Dewan’s birthday party last week, which HollywoodLife is pointing out is a pretty big deal, considering Niall and Bieber are good friends. Who knows, maybe that’s why he is in America and why he changed his hair colour?
