One Direction star Liam Payne has been pretty low-key for the past few months in lockdown, but he was recently pictured for the first time in a while.

The singer, who could be reuniting with One Direction soon, looked almost unrecognisable as he arrived for rehearsals for his BAFTA's performance, sporting a longer hairstyle down to his chin.

The 27 year old appeared different from his boyband days, and wore a t-shirt and displayed his sleeve tattoos as he waited to enter the building.

However the star has since taken to Instagram to reveal his big transformation after getting his long locks cut.

Liam showed off his look to his 22 million Instagram followers by posting a black and white snap on his stories.

“Thanks @lukebensonhair,” penned the star as he posed for a photo displaying his significantly shorter hairstyle.

Liam showed fans he’d opted for a new style, which looks much like one he had back in his One Direction days, with a stylish quiff.

Liam's hair transformation comes after he opened up about how he was finding the Covid-19 pandemic hard to deal with.

The dad-of-one, said he had to get a negative Covid-19 test each time he wanted to see his son Bear, who he shares with ex Cheryl.

Speaking on Instagram live with producer Ben Whiston in January, Liam explained: "I went and saw Bear today we had a little hangout which was nice as I hadn't seen him in a couple of weeks.

"It's hard with the Covid thing as I have to make sure I'm negative before I go over and see him so it's having to wait that couple of days before you can test so…"

Liam went on to reveal how much his son has grown up in the past year in lockdown.

He added: "He's only up the street and it's dead complicated but he's gotten so big, huge."

The doting dad previously expressed that his son told him he "needs" him as they went without seeing each other for the "longest" time.

While engaging with Tings magazine back in November 2020, he divulged: "He said something quite sad the other day. He was like, ‘Come on, Daddy, we need you now.’

"So those moments are really difficult. It’s the longest I haven’t seen him in his life.

"But we discussed from the start and for different reasons, me and Cheryl decided I should be away for a little bit.

"It’s not unusual for me to be in and out of his life. He’s quite a chill child. He doesn’t worry about things too much," Liam said.
