When Capital FM counted down the best hairstyles in pop Harry came in at a respectable eighth position, only behind heavyweights like Rihanna, Beyonce and Lady Gaga.

Despite the popularity of his long curly hair Harry revealed last year that he would consider shaving his trademark mop off for charity if the right opportunity came up but not anytime soon because he would "look funny bald".
The 'One Thing' singer showed some clear favouritism over his fellow bandmates when he donned this homemade t-shirt declaring his love for One Direction's Louis Tomlinson.

After launching their music careers with 'What Makes You Beautiful', One Direction then published their biography 'Dare To Dream', which detailed each of their journeys to pop stardom. Harry is seen here signing copies of the book during an event at WH Smiths' in London.
On the week that their first single 'What Makes You Beautiful' topped the Vodafone Big Top 40 Harry joined his bandmates at Capital FM for a webchat where they discussed everything from getting married to getting tattoos.

Back in November 2011 it was reported Harry was being lined up for a modelling career on top of being one-fifth of One Direction after meeting up with London-based FM Model Agency.
The 'Gotta Be You' singer achieved his New Year's Resolution early when he passed his driving test in December 2011. "Massive well done harry!!!!!! Errmmmm Can I have a lift mate?" - One Direction's Liam Payne.
The 'One Thing' singer gained an unexpected fan recently when Arnold Schwarzenegger's 22 year-old daughter Katherine tweeted that she has watched the band's music videos and thinks Harry is "a cutie"!
Despite only just turning 18 Harry is clearly a big coffee lover already. “Harry Styles is very proud of his new starbucks cup" - Liam Payne. Picture: Twitter
