Harry Styles (born 01.02.1994) Harry Styles is an English singer from the boyband One Direction.

Childhood: Harry Styles was born in Evesham, Worcestershire, England and grew up in the village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. His parents are Anne Cox and Des Styles but they divorced when he was 7. He attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School and had a job at the W. Mandeville Bakery in the village when he was 16 before auditioning for the UK TV singing competition 'The X Factor'.

Musical career: Harry Styles was first in a band called White Eskimo with lead guitarist Haydn Morris, bass guitarist Nick Clough and drummer Will Sweeny and with whom he won a Battle of the Bands competition. Among his influences are Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Foster the People, Coldplay and Kings of Leon. He auditioned for 'The X Factor' in 2010 as a solo artist but, after failing to make it to the Judges Houses round, he was put together with other solo candidates Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson to make a new band for the Groups category at the suggestion of one of the judges Nicole Scherzinger. Harry was the band member who put forward the name 'One Direction' which was agreeable to the other members. One Direction came third place in the competition but were subsequently signed to mentor Simon Cowell's Syco Records anyway. Since forming, One Direction has won two BRIT awards, three Teen Choice awards and broke a Guinness World Record as the first British group in US chart history to open at number one in the US with a debut album after the release of 'Up All Night'.

Personal Life: Harry Styles has had various high profile relationships and is known for dating women older than him. In 2011, he dated 'The Xtra Factor' host Caroline Flack who is 15 years his senior. Flack received many death threats from die hard One Direction fans as a result. In 2012, he began dating country pop singer Taylor Swift even spending New Year's Eve together. However, they split in January 2013. Harry has more than thirty tattoos on his body.
