A lot of things have changed since One Direction first broke onto the scene as a boy band. Even the things you assumed would remain constant — Harry Styles’ shaggy, luscious locks, Niall Horan’s blonde hair — are no longer the same. Niall Horan is now a brunette, according to MTV, and fans are freaking out over the color swap.

People online are either in love with the new ‘do or are lamenting the good old days when the band was performing together and Horan’s hair was a bright, white blonde. According to Horan’s Instagram, he went dark a couple of weeks ago, but when photos of his hair surfaced online recently, the Internet started to take notice. Imagine everyone’s surprise when they realized their favorite boy band icon had a new hairstyle. I mean, really, what has the world come to?

Horan’s going darker proves that you really never know what might happen. Things change at a moment’s notice. New things are bound to come at the beginning of a New Year, and this 1Der's hair color is just another thing you'll have to adjust to. While I did find Horan hard to recognize at first, I gotta say, I’m not minding the brown color on him. Each fan has their own opinion, however. Take a look at the photos so you can officially weigh in, too!
