Harry Styles was first known as one of the pretty boys of One Direction, a band that was formed in 2010 and which had won third in the seventh season of The X Factor. Despite each member’s popularity, there may be things you don’t know about the Watermelon Sugar singer.
Solo From the Get-Go
Before he became a member of One Direction, colloquially called 1D, Harry joined the talent search as a solo candidate. In the audition, the scarf-and-cardigan-clad young man sang Isn’t She Lovely by Stevie Wonder, which definitely showed his talent.
However, that wasn’t enough to sustain his spot at the competition, so after a few rounds, Harry was eliminated. Later on, he, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson were brought back to the show as a group – behold, the birth of One Direction.
Musician at A Young Age
Harry seems to be a natural in what he is doing even now that he is focusing on his solo career and we may credit that to his passion that started at such a young age. In high school, the singer was a member of a band called White Eskimo, which performed at weddings and school events.
As to the artist he looked up to while growing up, Harry revealed that it was Shania Twain – not just with music but fashion as well. He explained that her songs were usually played in their house when he was a child.
When the hype on One Direction was still picking up, Harry showed his acting chops in the Nickelodeon TV show called iCarly. He landed a bigger role in 2017 for the film Dunkirk, an award-winning picture that starred Tom Hardy and Fionn Whitehead.
About His Tattoos
Harry has so many tattoos it seems impossible to track them all. However, as per one count, the dashing star has more than 40 doodles in his body---some of the notable ones are swallows, a butterfly, and a mermaid, although we don’t know the significance of these.
Speaking of which, Harry has a matching tattoo with Grammy award-winning hitmaker Ed Sheeran. Fun fact: they have been good friends for quite some time now.
Likes and Wants
The Gucci model is obviously a big fan of suits, which is probably why the luxury fashion house chose him. In fact, he has a very wide collection of clothes specially made for him by the brand.
