At 23 year of age Zayn has had a varied career in the music industry. He shot to fame in 2010 on the British television Music show called the X Factor where having been knocked out of the competition early on he came back to form a boy band with Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson called One Direction. Last year he left the band with the view to start a solo career as a pop star and this month he plans to release his first solo album entitled Mind of Mine.
Zayn’s father is a British Pakistani and his mother was English/part Irish. You can see that Zayn has very noticeable dark hair and brown eyes and prominent features like an angular jaw line.
So with this first picture taken back in 2013 you can see that his hair was kept very short on the sides perhaps a grade 2 or 3 and then a fade uppercut to the top of his head where the hair is a medium length.
To get that line between the sides and the top part I would suggest asking your barber/hairdresser to wet your hair and use a comb to separate the side from the top of the hair. That way its easier then to cut the sides. The hairdresser will need to shave over-comb the hair as he reaches the top of the sides of the head.
On completion one needs to taper around the ears and neck line to tidy up the haircut.
A good styling aid such as a wax matt finish will help create the quiff at the front and style the hair.

In this picture from 2015 Zayn went even shorter on the sides and on the top. This time he combed his hair to one side which means its easier to mange and get right.

In this last picture Zayn obviously thought screw this I’m going all out and decided to die his hair and also grow it even longer on the top to get some fullness and shape. Personally I like the boldness of the haircut but it is slightly top heavy and you would constantly need to be keeping sure that the top of the hair hasn’t allowed gravity to pull it back down.
