Ahhh Harry Styles… He might not have the royal status like our other famous Harry, but when it comes to hair, the former One Direction member is much more fortunate. Ever since his boy band era, Styles has been considered one of the group’s most attractive members. That tag is due, in part, to the British singer’s famously messy shag ‘do.
His hair is voluminous, flowy and silky, which adds to the pop star’s effortless charm that appeals to fans of all genders. It mixes the best of what British rock stars have to offer: it is a bit Lennon, a bit Jagger and a bit Bowie, and at the same time unequivocally Styles. His hair is chic and versatile, perfectly complementing his face shape and style. Teenagers and adults alike have been bringing Harry’s pictures to their barber, asking for his early bohemian waves that recall Wham! era George Michael, his fresh mid-century cut in Dunkirk or the classic long-hair-slicked-back look.
Some of the “Watermelon Sugar” singer’s androgyny-inspired looks have been met with accusations of queer-baiting, but being the pop royalty that he is, Styles is a Vogue-cover-worthy trendsetter among his peers. With new haircuts he not only signals the advent of new projects, which usually sends fans into a frenzy, the evolution of his hairstyle also mirrors his growth from a fledgling 17-year-old on the UK X Factor to a top-selling, Coachella-headlining global pop phenomenon.
