Zayn Malik Without His Beard Will Give You Major Flashbacks To His Early One Direction Days — PHOTOS

Everyone, stop what you’re doing, because Zayn Malik has officially shaved his beard! This occasion is nearly as momentous as the day that will forever go down in history as, well, the Harry Styles decided to cut his long hair off. You know the one I'm talking about.

So back to Malik. He posted a photo with a shaven beard to Instagram, and he was working that clean shaven face, if I do say so myself. I was definitely a fan of his facial hair, but I certainly don’t mind him without it, either. Basically, this guy does no wrong.

Of course, this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a fresh-faced Malik. The former boy band member was sans beard when he first hit the music scene as a part of One Direction. And he only started to thicken up his beard pretty recently, actually, but fans still had plenty of time to get used to a scruffier version of the singer. Twitter seems to be a little on the fence about the transformation. Some love the beard, others are happy to see it gone. But, I think in time, everyone will make the adjustment. I mean, you can never stay mad at Malik for too long, am I right? I think not! Because just look at this face.

See? Are you mad now? Nah.

He looks good with a little bit of scruff.


Or with a really thick beard.

And some people prefer it that way.

But, others seem to think he's quite handsome without the beard.

No matter how you normally feel about facial hair, you're probably questioning all of your opinions right about now.

Just take a deep breath. It's going to be OK.
