1D's hair secrets revealed

Hair stylist Lou Teasdale keeps her approach to One Direction's hair "simple".

The pop band is made up of Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne. Each of them have different, instantly recognisable heads of hair, such as Harry's thick brown curls.

Lou Teasdale tends to the boys' appearances and has revealed her secret to creating their iconic dos.

“I like to keep the products simple on the boys,” she explained to People. “I try to use two products on each boy - one styling product and one finishing product so that I don’t end up piling more and more product in and it looks too ‘done.’"

It seems each member has their own taste in styling products as Lou admits she hasn't found one which all of them like yet.

"I’m also buzzing when I find a product that I use on, like, three out of five boys. Then it’s less to carry around," she smiled.

One must-have Lou relies on is Fudge Urban Sea Salt Spray, which she is an ambassador for. She uses the product to style the perfect quiff and add texture.

“It’s a must for boys’ hairstyles,” she advised.

Along with looking after the boys' manes, Lou also keeps other essentials in her bag. She often travels with them so makes sure she's set with the things they'll definitely need.

“In my kit I keep five toothbrushes and toothpaste, plasters, body spray, pain killers, eye drops, nail clippers, anti-histamines - there’s nothing worse than hay fever on a shoot - razors, shaving foam... basically everything a man needs," she added.

Harry recently spoke about the relationship he has with his hair, admitting he goes through stages of loving it then hating it.

"Probably my hair..." he answered Very magazine when asked what he least likes about himself. "Ah, it's hard because it's kind of my favourite and my least favourite. I really like it, but sometimes it gets in the way, especially when I'm running."
