He first sang in a group in a school contest, as well as in 2010 he performed on the television show The X Factor, where the judges joined him with four other young man vocalists to form One Direction. Despite finishing third in the competition, One Direction received a recording contract and became a best selling boy band.
He along with his sister Gemma were brought up by their mom in the town of Holmes Chapel in Cheshire. His mom was later remarried, to Robin Twist.
Styles attended Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School, where he and three of his friends formed a group called White Eskimo. Styles was White Eskimo’s lead singer, as well as the group was popular enough to win a group contest at their school. After school as well as on weekends, Styles worked in the W. Mandeville bakery in Holmes Chapel.
Performing as One Direction (a name apparently proposed by Styles), the five lads became among the most famous competitors in the X Factor finals that season. Although they completed the competition in third place, they were promptly signed to Cowell’s Syco music label.
Styles is the youngest member of One Direction, and his curled hair, broad grin and sweet-yet-naughty manner have made him a fan favorite. He sang a few of the lead vocals on the group’s first single, “What Makes You Beautiful,” which premiered in September 2011 in the UK. One Direction’s debut album, Up All Night, was a best seller in the Uk as well as the Usa the next year. In a different highlight of 2012, Fashions as well as the remainder of One Direction performed in the Olympics closing ceremony in London.
Styles is known as “the flirt” of One Direction, and his intimate relationships are followed obsessively from the press and his devotees. The difference within their ages—Fashions was 17 at the time, and Flack was 32—was the topic of much discussion among Styles’ fan base.
Since his break up with Flack in January 2012, Styles is romantically linked with photographer Sarah-Louise Colivet, models Emma Ostilly and Cara Delevingne, and vocalists Lily Halpern and Rita Ora. His most-publicized relationship of 2012 was a two-month affair with pop star Taylor Swift. The two were often photographed together, and Swift apparently referred to Styles in song lyrics and performances as soon as they quit dating.
