Harry Styles is a member of the UK boy band, One Direction. He was born on February 1, 1994 in Evesham, Worcestershire, England.
At the age of 16, Styles auditioned for the reality singing competition show The X Factor UK. He made it onto the show but failed to earn a spot in the "Boys" category. Instead, Simon Cowell - the series producer and judge - joined Styles with four other contestants to qualify for the "Groups" category. Styles came up with the name One Direction.
Styles, along with his bandmates, finished the competition in third place. But they gained such popularity while on the show that One Direction signed to Syco Records shortly after the finale.
Styles is quite the Casanova. He has dated a string of high profile celebrities who are a number of years his senior, including singer Taylor Swift, 23, Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack, 33, and married DJ Lucy Horobin, 32. Styles insists that he would never date a woman older than his own mother, who is 43.
Styles has also collected over 30 tattoos.
