Harry Edward Style
Harry was born on 1st February 1994 making him the youngest member of One Direction. Harry was brought up in the beautiful village of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. The village is 21 miles south of Manchester. Harry’s mom is called Anne Cox and his dad’s name is Des Styles. Harry also has an older sister named Gemma.
Unfortunately Harry’s parents divorced when he was seven years old. He said of the experience "That was quite a weird time. I remember crying about it. I didn't really get what was going on properly, I was just sad that my parents wouldn't be together any more." Harry’s step dad is named Robin. He said he was “really pleased” when Robin proposed to his mom. The first song Harry knew all the words to was ‘The Girl Of My Best Friend’ by Elvis Presley. *WHOA THAT'S A GOOD SONG* Harry impressed two out of the three judges in the X Factor first round with a version of Stevie Wonder’s ‘ Isn't She Lovely’. Louis Walsh had doubts but once progressed Harry sang Oasis’s ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ at boot camp. Harry’s favorite song of all time is ‘Free Falling’ by John Mayer. He also loves ‘Shine On You Crazy Diamond’ by Pink Floyd.
Harry absolutely loves getting naked. He said: “Stripping off is very liberating, I feel so free.” I bet most didn't know that Harry and Louis are the only two members of One Direction who have passed their driving test. *My Nialler needs to pass hahaha*
Harry told The Hits Radio that his ultimate 1D tour bus anthem is ‘Lego House’ by Ed Sheeran. *Who wouldn't want that as a theme song, Me and my girl Dana LOVE that song* Also Harry's Favorite color is Pink, but also likes Orange and Blue.
Harry shares his birthday (1st February) with Outlast rapper Big Boi, folk singer Laura Marling, Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher and Elvis Presley’s daughter (and Michael Jackson’s former wife) Lisa Marie Presley.
There was a 15-year age gap between Harry and his ex-girlfriend Caroline Flack – a relationship that sparked controversy in the press. *Honestly age is but just a number, and he does like girls his own age too*
Although he’s partial to a more mature lady, Harry says he’d never date anyone older than his mom.
Also did you all know that Harry came up with the band name, One Direction.On One Direction’s debut album ‘Up All Night’, Harry gets just over 7 minutes of solos – the most out of any One Direction member.
Harry makes a brief cameo appearance in Ed Sheeran’s first ‘Drunk’ video. It was filmed backstage at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire. *WHAT! No way I've seen that music video a few times.....I think I'm going to play I Spy ;)*
Harry says he would happily date a fan! When asked he said: “Yeah definitely, because if you like someone, you like someone. If they’re a fan it shouldn't make any difference.” *I know who he will date and marry......my cousin Carli aha...she even got to meet Harry and the other boys. I'M SO JELLO!!!* Harry’s favorite love song is the ultra-soppy ‘Lady In Red’ by Chris de Burgh.
Harry’s biggest turn off in a girl is swearing. He also hates it when his 1D band mates say the ‘f word’. Alongside swearing, Harry’s other pet hate in a girl is smoking. Also know that Harry says he wouldn't date a girl if she didn't get on with his family. Harry says he’d love to get married one day and have kids.
Harry likes to stay fit by playing tennis and badminton in his spare time. *I like to play badminton too :)*
Harry has been romantically linked to a string of women including Caroline Flack, singer Lily Halpern, In betweeners actress Emily Atack, Bachelorette star Jillian Harris and model Emma Ostilly. Despite constant media speculation, most have just been acquaintances.
Harry was voted the 18th hottest hunk of 2012 by readers of Heat Magazine, making him sexier than Brad Pitt, Justin Timberlake, Steve Jones and Robbie Williams.
Harry’s favorite animals are turtles. A big fan of animals, he also loves cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits and even pigeons.
Harry want to lose his trademark curly locks but no-one will let him! He said: “I want to shave my hair off, and no one will really let me. Everyone’s telling me not to do it. And my argument is, like, I think my popularity is in my face, and not my hair.”
Harry celebrated reaching number one in America with ‘Up All Night’ by buying a… MATTRESS!! He explained to The Sun: "I'm going to treat myself to a new one. I need a good one. The one I'm using is still the one that was there when I moved in. The springs have gone." Rock and Roll!!
Harry counts pop megastar Rihanna as one of his biggest fans. RiRi told The Mirror: "Harry, yeah. I watch their videos and I remember thinking, 'Wow, he's a star'. He seems very sure. It seems, like, it's so natural to him."

According to his band mates, Harry is the biggest schmoozer in One Direction. Liam Payne told The Mirror: "Harry has loads of secret celebrity phone numbers and we find out about them later. We'll see something in the papers and be like: 'What's going on here?' and he'll be like: 'Oh, it's Gary from Take That or whoever, don't worry about it.'
Such is the bromance between Harry and Louis, many fans fuse their names together to create Larry Stylinson! *Sounds hot hahaha*
At school Harry’s nickname was Hazza. Liam is the only 1D member to call him it.
Harry is a mummy’s boy! His mum Anne Cox told heat magazine: “Sometimes, he phones up to five times a day. When there’s a time difference, he tends to text saying, ‘I love you, Mum,’ or ‘I miss you’. He’s still my little boy.” *Bless!*
Harry’s favorite (non-alcoholic) drink is apple juice. *WHOA, mine too*
When ‘Up All Night’ reached number one in America back in March, Harry described the moment as a “dream come true.” He said: "We simply cannot believe that we are No.1 in America! It's beyond a dream come true for us. We want to thank each and every one of our fans in the US who bought our album and we would also like to thank the American public for being so supportive of us."
Earlier this year Harry was forced to take action following a series of back problems. He told The Sun: "I have bad posture and I've been told to take Pilates once a week."
Harry has got a star tattoo on the inside of his left arm. Each point apparently represents a member of One Direction. * I think that, that makes sense*
Did you all know that Harry was so ill before his first X Factor audition he almost had to pull out! Speaking about his hospitalization he said: “I kept being sick just before I went on The X Factor. I remember I kept throwing up and then I got really bad and I started coughing up blood." Fortunately he was discharged from hospital and the rest, they say, is history.
Harry says that his fans’ mums often make approaches for him after gigs! He told the Daily Mirror: “The fans can sometimes get very graphic and there are a few mums that hit on us.” * O_o *
Harry openly admits he’s a bit clumsy. In fact, he’s dropped his shades down the bog not once, but twice! He tweeted: “Dropping your sunglasses down the toilet is a mistake you would think that you'd learn from. Apparently not.”
Harry has had a number of missiles thrown at him at 1D shows – including bras, knickers and even a tampon! *OMG who would throw a tampon hahahaha what is with girl's these days? *

In May 2012 Harry sold a signed charity wristband for a whopping £9010 on eBay. Once worn by Harry, the wristband was part of a Believe In Magic sale – a charity that spreads Magic to seriously and terminally ill children with experiences to make their lives happier.
If he wasn't in One Direction, Harry reckons he’d be training to be a physiotherapist. Asked what he’d be up to without his lucky break Harry said: “I always wanted to be a physiotherapist and before I was in the band, I was studying, so I’d probably be working hard and studying for that.”
Harry has a crush on Adele. Back in February at the BRIT Awards he said she’s the one star he’d most like to snog there. He added: “I’d date Adele! She makes me go weak at the knees.” *Holy kinda wishing I was Adele hahaha*
One of Harry’s favourite phrases is “Keep the change you filthy animal.” The line is from a fictional gangster movie called ‘Angels with Filthy Souls’ that Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) watches in the 1990 film Home Alone. * I remember that, that is such a great movie*
One Direction were so exhausted from constantly touring that in March this year they all had vitamin injections to boost their energy levels. Harry had his in his bum!
Harry is big fan of supercars. Back in April he splashed out on an Audi R8 Coupe and while on tour in Los Angeles in June he drove a £195,000 Ferrari. He also drives a Range Rover that cost him £15,000 to insure. *HOLY*
Harry has joked that if all the 1D members liked the same girl they would fight for her. He told Top of the Pops Magazine: “I don't think we have liked the same girl yet as we all have quite different taste in girls, so we don't come across that problem, which is great. But if that were to happen? Fisticuffs!”
In early 2012, Harry played an ace prank his band mate Zayn Malik. When Zayn was asleep, Harry shaved his initials ‘H.S.’ on his leg! Zayn told Twist magazine it “ wasn't too attractive.”
Harry’s hair hasn't always been curly – it was straight from when he was born until the end of primary school. * I used to think he straightens his hair like Liam sometimes does*
Harry's favorite song form his Up All Night album is More Then This and from his Take Me Home album its Heart Attack and Little Things
