30 Things we love about Harry Styles in honour of his 30th birthday

Harry Styles’ 30th birthday should be an international holiday

Unfortunately, right now it’s not but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate it in style(s).

Terrible puns aside, in honour of the singer’s big birthday, here are 30 things we love about him.

He donated his iconic long locks to The Little Princess Trust to make real-hair wigs for children.

Harry got the words ‘Late Late’ tattooed on his arm after losing a game with James Corden in 2015.

When he channelled Mick Jagger, hands outstretched and shaky head, on Saturday Night Live in 2017.

When he was just 19 years old he beat David Beckham, Kate Moss and Kate Middleton to win a British Style Award, big slay.

The time he invited Shania Twain on stage as he headlined Coachella Festival in California in 2022.

He was the first man to appear solo on the cover of American Vogue in 2020, wearing a dress no less.

When he became a squid for the video for his single, Music for a Sushi Restaurant.

The fact he admitted that his guilty pleasure is working out to One Direction songs.

Harry used to work in his local bakery in Holmes Chapel earning £6 an hour.

That time he starred in iCarly, pretending to be sick to get more attention from Carly herself.

Himself and Ed Sheeran have matching tattoos and Ed has previously inked him.

When he played a dog that turned into a human on SNL and belted out the words, “Joan I love you, I love the way you feed me ham”.

Stevie Nicks called him herself and Mick Fleetwood’s love child.

When filming the ‘Watermelon Sugar’ music video, he was branded a “consent king” by the models on set for checking they were comfortable and asking before touching them.

The fact that he named his childhood hamster, Hamster. So creative.

Elvis Presley’s The Girl Of My Best Friend was the first song he ever knew all the words to.

Harry celebrated reaching number one in America with Up All Night by buying a mattress.

He’s super close with his mum.

Harry can juggle and play the kazoo – it’s unknown if he can do both at the same time.

He has a fear of snakes.

He once shaved a H in former bandmate Zayn Malik’s leg hair.

Harry talks in his sleep.

On The Howard Stern Show, Harry Styles shut down the rumor that his 2022 song Daylight is about his ex-girlfriend, Taylor Swift.

Harry has expressed on multiple occasions that he chooses to express his sexuality on his own terms, and prefers not to define it.

He wrote Just a Little Bit of Your Heart for Ariana Grande’s 2014 album, My Everything.

One of his favourite One Direction memories is when the band had their first group picture featured in a newspaper, and they all went to a newsstand the following morning to buy copies and marvel at it over breakfast.

He has four nipples, which we’ve seen in various music videos like One Direction’s Kiss You and Golden.

In 2022, he helped a fan come out at his show at Wembley Stadium, making it a fun and joyous experience as he waved a big rainbow flag across the stage.

When Harry first met Stevie Nicks backstage after a Fleetwood Mac show, he gave her a carrot cake for her birthday.

His song Matilda was inspired by Roald Dahl’s famous character Matilda Wormwood.
