One Direction: Where are They Now?
Hello, One Direction fans! Or should we say 1Ders… or Directioners? We were all sad first when Zayn Malik left the band as 1D announced on their Facebook page on March 1st, 2015. Then we were all even sadder when they all decided to take a hiatus for awhile later in 2015 which now seems like is becoming a permanent thing.
But lucky for us, they all are going on to make new solo careers so we haven’t heard the lat of them yet. In fact, the best may be yet to come. So what has everyone been up to since their split in 2015? We will go through them one by one below and keep this post updated so you can come back and check on the latest with your favorite One Directioner!
Harry has been very busy since the split. We all love Harry. He is definitely a fan favorite. Many 1D fans also call him Extroadonharry. What can we say about Harry? He kinda has it all, good looks, awesome strong voice, charisma and well, just everything about Harry is awesome.
Post 1D, Harry is really coming into his own style. His new album is a mix of psychedelic, almost Pink Floyd style tunes (Dining Room Table) with some sad songs (Sweet Creature and Sign of the Times) mixed in with a very unique Harry Style that only he can do (Kiwi.)

Niall… Niall… Niall… who doens’t love you? Good looks, like totally hot Irish accent.. who wouldn’t crush on you? Also with a fun sense of humor always making everyone laugh. Later in 1D playing the guitar gave you that extra sexy charm. A rocker with a sort of “southern” charm.
Later after the split also coming forth as such a strong talent that was overshadowed while in 1D. Now your soft sultry voice can be heard on your new album, Flicker. Niall has grown the most musically for sure. He also comes across as having the sweetest personality, with all his interviewers and how he talks about his old band mates, other musicians, his love or writing and even golf and football. He’s just an all around good guy. And with his new “hair do” he has a more mature look that is even hotter then he was before, if that is possible.
