Harry Styles

Birth Name: Harry Edward Styles

Place of Birth: Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England, U.K.

Date of Birth: 1 February, 1994

Ethnicity: English

Harry Styles is an English singer, songwriter, and actor. He is a member of the boy band One Direction, along with Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and, previously, Zayn Malik.

Harry is the son of Anne (Selley) and Desmond Styles. He is of English descent. Many of his ancestors were farm labourers in Norfolk. Some of Harry’s father’s ancestry can be traced back to the 1500s.

Harry’s paternal grandfather is Keith Frederick Styles (the son of Ernest George Styles and Gladys Winifred Fairchild). Keith was born in Peterborough, Northamptonshire. Gladys was the daughter of Frederick Fairchild and Jane Winters.

Harry’s paternal grandmother is Beryl German (the daughter of John George German and Doris Daniels). Beryl was born in Peterborough, Northamptonshire. Doris was the daughter of Elijah Daniels and Maggie Rosetta Dunkley.

Harry’s maternal grandfather is Brian William Selley (the son of William Thomas Selley/Selby and Ena May Boon). Brian was born in Islington, London. Harry’s great-grandfather William was the son of John Hackwarthy Selley and Martha Caroline Baker.

Harry’s maternal grandmother is named Mary Smith.

Because of Harry’s interest in the Jewish faith, there has been speculation as to whether Harry is of Jewish background/religion. Harry is not Jewish (neither of his parents is of Jewish ancestry).

nothing wrong with the current pic. Cant update every pic without spending a lot of money.

andrew August 15, 2017 at 5:36 am

He does not look like this anymore (same for Liam Payne and other teen idols), but if money is the reason I agree with you.

Btw can you confirm my Chris Froome submission when you can? Thank you very much.

He looks weird and handsome. Confusing but still hot

madman April 24, 2016 at 2:16 am

One Direction should have their pages linked together

andrew April 24, 2016 at 8:54 am

I suggest the same treatment for The Doors and The Rolling Stones. There are all the founding members profiles of both bands on Ethnicelebs, except possibly Brian Jones (but I added Ronnie Wood who is a current member).

He looks weird sometimes, but he looks decent in this photo.

sparkles180 August 11, 2015 at 12:42 pm

He’s cute but he’s so annoying.

Devotion October 26, 2015 at 5:28 pm

I would call him “cute ugly” or “ugly cute”.

M May 30, 2015 at 10:20 pm

He is definitely the ugliest member of One Direction. At first I thought he looked just white, but he has something ethnic about him. Could be part African.

musicfangirl July 23, 2015 at 11:22 pm

he looks pretty white to me you might want to get your eyes checked

cwm85 July 24, 2015 at 12:01 am

Right Obama is part african and European and harry styles looks nothing like a mulatto.

cwm85 July 23, 2015 at 11:59 pm

Part African, really? His hair, skin complexion, blue eyes. And you think he looks part black african? Obama is part African and European. Harry styles looks nothing like an African European mix.

ihatemostpeople July 24, 2015 at 1:16 pm

I’m trying to see “African” features on him, and the only thing I could come up with is his nose. Is that what you’re talking about? Not all whites have the same noses, not all are pointy. He looks white to me.

He isn’t even that ugly, he’s just average.

neiltennant June 27, 2016 at 3:50 pm

M please consult a doctor and get your eyes checked please

until it will be tooooo late

Now this is a typical English looking Brit.

Not George Clooney.

ashmore1707 August 27, 2014 at 5:15 am

Lol some funny comments. I’m guessing the people who say he looks mixed have never been to England. Looks completely English

ShawntheGod July 27, 2014 at 4:20 am

Looks like a frog.

roman2886 April 26, 2014 at 3:40 pm

Harry Styles doesn’t look full English at all he might have mixed blood he might Greek blood a long way back like Hugh Jackman i always thought he was full blooded English but it turns out he has Greek blood i wouldn’t surprised if Harry Styles has Greek blood.

FoxHamar July 31, 2014 at 11:22 am

Dude, you’ve been wrong about everything you’ve ever posted here.

stonelord July 31, 2014 at 12:57 pm

What does an English person look like? Please tell me. He looks damn English to me.

shobohunter April 15, 2014 at 4:07 am

He does not look part black, he has cro-magon features. Too many idiots on this site.

AnonymousPerson December 30, 2013 at 3:55 pm

He looks part black. Look at his nose. Maybe he’s 1/8 black.

hanna January 14, 2014 at 12:20 pm

You are foolish! Just because he has a wide nose doesn’t make him black,and his nose isn’t flat like most black’s people noses it’s just thick

BB January 22, 2014 at 1:07 am

And you’re foolish because most black people’s noses aren’t flat. Cause I’m definitely black and my nose is wide like that but not flat. Plus I know no other black person with a flat nose.

indo December 19, 2013 at 6:35 pm

hes a player.

taylor December 30, 2013 at 2:26 am

what does that have to do with his ethnicity

Anon December 11, 2013 at 11:05 pm

ew December 25, 2013 at 10:59 pm

Alice December 26, 2013 at 3:58 am

Jc January 12, 2014 at 12:21 am

hanna January 18, 2014 at 8:38 am

andrew June 13, 2013 at 3:21 pm

blackandwhitechic February 16, 2013 at 8:55 am

Crates December 25, 2012 at 7:57 pm
