British boyband One Direction are known for their loyal fans on both sides of the Atlantic, and they keep them up-to-date with everything from their tour schedule to their beauty regime, including manicures, pedicures, and teeth whitening. The boys are not shy about posting pictures of their backstage routines either, which have changed dramatically from the early days of video games and play-fighting.
One Direction member Harry Styles poked fun at band mate Zayn Malik by tweeting a picture of him getting his nails done to their two million followers on the social networking site Twitter, adding the tagline ‘Bit of manly pampering…’ Although the eighteen-year-old singer is one to talk, after he was pictured last week wearing a mouth retractor and protective goggles ahead of a whitening procedure mid-way through their tour of North America. It seems the British lads are doing their best to keep up with the Hollywood trend of perfect teeth, and they’re not above tweeting embarrassing pictures of each other to keep their fans up to date with their latest personal grooming treatments.
The band – who were put together by X-Factor mogul Simon Cowell last year – are currently travelling across the US and Canada on a sell-out tour, performing to thousands of fans every night; they have even got fellow X-Factor alumni Olly Murs supporting them. The singer tweeted his appreciation from Toronto, saying ‘@onedirection fans in toronto this evening!! Amazing crowd!! WHAT A BUZZ!!’
