Harry Edward Styles, more commonly known as Harry Styles is a singer-songwriter of the popular British boyband One Direction.
He was born on the 1st of February, 1994 to Des Styles and Anne Cox in Worcestershire, England. His parents got divorced when he was 7, and he chose to keep on living with his mother and his sister, Gemma. Harry showed an inclination towards music and singing from a young age only.
He attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School as a boy, and even had a band called White Eskimo. The band consisted of members Hadyn Morris, Nick Clough and Will Sweeney. They came together out of their love for music and decided to participate in a Battle of Bands. The band winning the competition was crucial in leading Harry to release of his intense passion for music and performing in front of audiences.
He auditioned for X-Factor in 2010, with a cover of Isn't She Lovely. He kept on moving forwards till he was eliminated at BootCamp. There, Simon Cowell, one of the X-Factor judges, took Harry and placed him in a group of 4 other boys, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik. It was Harry who came up with the name 'One Direction' for their group. The band then went on to win third place in the seventh X-Factor show.
Shortly after, reports of them signing a contract with Sony Music were released. Since then, Harry, alongside his band members has managed to release four chart topping albums; Up All Night, Midnight Memories, Take Me Home and Four. A number of hit singles among which What Makes You Beautiful, Live While We're Young were also the product of the boys' hardwork. The band also managed to garner a huge international and dedicated fan base, comprised mostly of young girls.
In March 2015, Zayn Malik announced his departure from the band, no doubt causing a huge blow to the band's status, though they continued without him.
Harry has gained the reputation for being quite the ladies' man, despite being the youngest member of the band. He has had romantic relations with Caroline Flack, who dated Styles when he was 17. The 15 year age gap between them was quite a topic of controversy for news tabloids. Since then, Styles has had relationships with famous singer Taylor Swift, and model Kendall Jenner.
