Niall Horan has rocked some serious looks over the years, and is barely recognisable from his bleach blonde teen look, having grown into a pretty ripped, dark haired guy! Let's take a look back at Niall's transformation over the years, from 1D boy band member all the way to the solo musician he is today...

As Niall turned the big 2-5 yesterday, we took the time to sit back and ponder the crazy journey he's been on, and TBH, just how different the singer looks to when he first started out in One Direction back in 2011, so let's put together some of our fave pictures of the star to see just how much he's changed!

Here's Niall in 2016, looking all growed up and having discovered the mighty flat cap, a rite of passage in any musicians journey at one point or another. Gone are the bleach blonde locks, and look, Niall now wears glasses. Classy. Refined. We like it, a lot.
