X Factor 2012: Union J get advice from One Direction

Union J (X Factor 2012)

X Factor boys Union J have been getting some top tips from One Direction... including how to style their hair!

The Daily Mirror report that Union J have been getting advise from the former X Factor champs, who have gone from making the final of the show in 2010 to worldwide stars.

They gushed: “It was awesome to meet them as they’ve been in the same position we’re in now, a couple of years ago.”

According to the newspaper, George Shelley and Harry Styles hit off instantly, with the pair swapping hair styling tips.

“Harry and George swapped numbers as the two groups are bound to start bumping into each other around the scene," a source told the tabloid. “Harry sees a lot of himself in George, so wanted to pass on a jokey text revealing his own secret, which is why he told him to never cut his curls as he reckons his hair makes him such a hit with the ladies.

“George was laughing and showed the text to a couple of people, but I’d say there’s no way he’ll be going for any drastic haircuts from now on.”


This weekend will see Union J "focus on the vocals" as they take to the stage for their third live performance.

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.

Saturday night's latest performance show will see the remaining eleven finalists singing tracks with a Club Classics theme.
