We all know Harry Styles’ hair is hot, but it almost caught on fire at One Direction‘s Chicago concert July 14. Thankfully, his bandmate Zayn Malik saved the day.
After performing “Teenage Dirtbag,” Harry took a break and wiped the sweat off his head with a towel — but he almost walked into a pyrotechnic torch that was lit during the song.
Fortunately, Zayn proved to be a knight in shining armor for Harry, as he grabbed Harry before his hair literally caught on fire. (Bandmates are always good to have around, Harry.)
This incident is eerily reminiscent of when King-of-Pop Michael Jackson’s hair caught on fire while filming a Pepsi commercial in front of fans in 1984. Thankfully, this had a better outcome.
The popular boy band is currently on the North American leg of their "Take Me Home" world tour. The boys previously toured in Europe and will finish off in Australia.
One Direction will release its third studio album later this year, and will embark on another world tour in April 2014.
