Harry Style’s Path to One Direction
Harry Edward Styles was the second child and only born to Anne Twist and Desmond “Des” Styles in Redditch, Worcestershire, England on February 1, 1994. He grew up in Cheshire and attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School. That was where his music career began. His band, White Eskimo, won a Battle of the Bands contest.
Several years later, in 2010, he was working at a bakery when his mom suggested that he try out for season seven of the British reality series “The X Factor.” As a soloist, he didn’t make the cut. He remained on the show, however, and was partnered with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Zayn Malik in the group category. Styles came up with the name One Direction and they thrived on “The X Factor” together. Their fan base grew and they ended up finishing third that year.
Being part of One Direction brought him fame and fortune. Some of their hits include “Live While We’re Young,” “Little Things,” “Best Song Ever,” “Story of My Life,” “Drag Me Down” and “History.”
1D sold more than 70 million records worldwide during their time together. The boyband was the first group ever to have its first four albums debut at number one on the Billboard 200 charts. In addition to being chart-topping singles, their songs won five Billboard Music Awards, four MTV Video Music Awards, five American Music Awards and six BRIT Awards.
One Direction went on a break in 2016, without having formally announced a forever split.

Styles has had quite a few short relationships over the years, the longest being Kendall Jenner (2013-2014, 2015-2016) and Taylor Swift (2012-2013). He also has a penchant for older women.

His “Love on Tour” 2021 adventure raised over $1 million for charities that included Physicians for Reproductive Health, Black Voters Matter and Choose Love. He partnered with REVERB.org to lower the tour’s environmental footprint even more than his first.
