Here's How Much Harry Styles Is Actually Worth

After being a part of One Direction, one of the most successful boy bands of our generation, plus his thriving career as a solo artist, British singer-songwriter Harry Styles has earned a net worth of $80 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Since he and the rest of One Direction were discovered on "The X Factor" in 2011, the group broke records with their first four albums debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and Styles has only continued to rise to the top from thereon.

Following the group's indefinite hiatus, Styles was signed as a solo artist in June 2016, and he proved to everyone that stepping out on his own was the right decision with the success of his first solo single "Sign of the Times." However, his song "Watermelon Sugar" marked his first No. 1 single in August 2020, and his sophomore album "Fine Line" was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. Aside from his music career, Styles has dabbled in several hosting gigs and has become a fashion icon with many modeling campaigns for Gucci and his playful sense of style. He's also ventured into the world of Hollywood with considerable success and launched his lifestyle brand, Pleasing, offering products and looks that tap into an aesthetic and sensuality that's indicative of who Styles is as a person.

It's all come together to leave the artist with a pretty penny, and while he likes to spend, Harry Styles also gives back in major ways.

How One Direction changed his life

Harry Styles was raised in Holmes Chapel, Cheshire, a village in the North of England. Before he became one of the iconic men of One Direction fame, Styles was just a 14-year-old with a weekend job at a bakery. He made around $7 U.S. dollars an hour, according to the Mirror, and his former boss, Simon ­Wakefield, had nothing but rave reviews for the then-unknown Styles. "He was the most polite member of staff we've ever had," Wakefield told the Mirror. "Customers really took a shine to him." Wakefield added of Styles, "He was a really hard worker. His jobs were serving in the shop, cleaning the back, ­scrubbing the floor, washing the trays, and cleaning the counter."

However, Styles wasn't destined for a life of pastries for long. Two years later, in 2010, the teen singer set his sights on "The X Factor," per The Guardian, and shared what he was hoping for in his audition. "Singing's what I want to do, and if the people who can make that happen for me don't think that I should be doing that, then it's a major setback in my plans," Styles said. "I've always wanted to audition," he added, "but I've always been too young."

But being young didn't stop Styles from making it big and he, along with the rest of the 1D members, became one of the biggest boy bands in history. In 2020, the Evening Standard listed their combined net worth at an estimated $340 million, noting that they were banking $280,000 a day each during their peak fame.

Harry Styles' solo career was next level

One Direction ended up dissolving in 2015 after band member Zayn Malik broke the news that he was leaving the group. Shortly after his announcement, the rest of the band declared an indefinite hiatus. All members of 1D went on to pursue solo careers, and Harry Styles has only seemed to increase in relevance while making his own mark on the music world. Talent manager and judge on "The X Factor" Louis Walsh spoke about the band members going solo. "Too much money, too much success, too quickly. Simon [Cowell] created monsters and that was it," Walsh told the Daily Mail (via the Independent). "They all think they're going to be solo stars. They're not. Only Harry. That's it." Ouch! 

Walsh's harsh comments seemed to prove somewhat true, however. In 2016, Styles signed with Columbia Records and dropped his self-titled debut record featuring the hit "Sign of the Times" the following year. If anyone was worried he might be a one-hit wonder as a solo artist, Styles eradicated those fears with 2019's "Fine Line," a release that was so successful that the record company's marketing team literally won an award. They were honored, Sony Music notes, for their savvy work in launching a merch line with Live Nation Merchandise that blossomed in major cities through pop-up shops, in addition to everything else that went into making Styles' second album such a sensation.

Following the massive success of "As It Was" ahead of the release of "Harry's House" in 2022, it's doubtful Styles is looking in the rear-view mirror career-wise.

The singer-turned-actor got a lot of respect for Dunkirk

Harry Styles got his first serious acting credit in Christopher Nolan's 2017 film "Dunkirk," an epic portrayal of the Allies surviving World War II on the beaches of France. The film itself was considered a cinematic masterpiece and proved to be a strategic choice for Styles in moving beyond the boyband persona.

In Entertainment Weekly's review of the film, which was positive all around, Styles made out nicely: "For the One Direction fans wondering, Harry Styles is also solid, seamlessly blending into the ensemble." Meanwhile, Rolling Stone called Styles' performance "subtle" and praised him for "zero pop-star showboating." So, with his first step into Hollywood met with nothing but respect, the movie established Styles as a worthwhile candidate for future projects. When Shia LaBeouf dropped out of Olivia Wilde's 2022 film "Don't Worry Darling," Styles came in as the replacement, and the fortuitous events also led to a relationship between director Wilde and actor Styles.

The change was a significant one, as Wilde discussed her process as a director and her vibe on set with Emerald Fennell for Variety in 2021. If someone isn't elevating the experience for everyone else, the "Booksmart" filmmaker doesn't want them around. Revealing that another director suggested she get into three arguments per day on set to establish her dominance, Wilde explained, "That is the opposite of my process. And I want none of that." Later, she added: "The no a******s policy ... it puts everybody on the same level." Clearly, Styles was able to fit into this gracious vibe seamlessly.

He makes a fortune from his world tours

Once Harry Styles decided to go solo, his world tours put the proof in the pudding that he was a star in his own right. His first was "Live on Tour," which began in 2017 and carried through all the way to 2018. The tour was a stunning success, with Styles garnering rave reviews from critics. "At this point in his meteoric young career, Styles could do anything," the Los Angeles Times wrote of his performance, while Billboard called him a "true rockstar" and said that "he was made to be the frontman."

Not only did Styles critically succeed, but his first world tour was a massive financial success. The tour boasted 70 shows and brought in an estimated $62 million, but it wasn't without a minor hiccup. The merchandise team initially charged more for larger-sized clothing, with smaller sizes costing $40 an item while anything from large to XXL was $45. However, as Teen Vogue notes, Live Nation Merchandise issued a statement to correct the problem and noted that it had nothing to do with Styles.

Styles' second tour, "Love on Tour," was postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic, according to NME. At long last, Styles embarked on a 42-show sold-out tour of the U.S. in the fall of 2021, which banked around $95 million. In January 2022, Styles announced the first batch of international tour dates, which would take him through 2023, on Instagram, writing in part, "I'm so excited to see you. Thank you, I love you. H." It's sure to be a blast, and a financial windfall.

Harry Styles' ongoing collaboration with Gucci

Harry Styles' iconic grip on the culture means that his financial streams come from several different sources, and thanks to his daring fashion sense, one of these came from Gucci. In fact, Styles' collaboration with the fashion house began while he was still with One Direction, when creative director Alessandro Michele famously dressed him in a floral suit for the 2015 American Music Awards, per Vogue. Styles continued to work with Gucci and pal Michele when he embarked on his solo career. In addition to wearing Gucci in his music video for "Sign of the Times," Styles modeled for the Italian designer brand in 2018 with a nice play on his English heritage, staged in a fish-and-chips shop, and again in 2019 — this time outside of Rome, where Styles holds a lamb across his shoulders looking every bit the young, Roman god (in really great suits).

Styles also became a vital part of Gucci's fragrance, Mémoire d'une Odeur (Memory of a Scent), designed for all genders. Styles spoke about memory and scent with Dazed Beauty in 2019, explaining, "I like a fragrance that has some emotion behind it. The triggering of memories from smell is really strong for everyone. My mother has always worn the same perfume. It smells like roman candles and jasmine. So like anytime I smell it, I feel like a kid again. I feel like everyone has those."

With Gucci styling the star during "Love on Tour" and at Coachella in 2022, this collaboration is obviously working well for both parties.

His gender-neutral beauty brand is big money

Harry Styles tapped into a gender-neutral aesthetic with the launch of his brand, Pleasing, a beauty line for all consumers. In November 2021, he shared a glimpse of some of the products on Instagram with the caption: "Find your Pleasing." The environmentally sustainable line features nail polish, facial serums, and lotions, as well as merchandise. A set of four nail polish bottles costs $65, while the Pearlescent Illuminating Serum runs at $35. The merchandise costs a bit more, with a minimalist crewneck costing $95, while $60 will get you a Pleasing pink t-shirt featuring a naked frog dancing around a mushroom. You do you, Styles!

"When we decided Pleasing would make beauty products I wanted to be sure they were something I would use," Styles explained in a press release, according to CNN. "I didn't want to make products to mask people, I wanted to highlight them and make them feel beautiful." The genderless aesthetic was deliberate, of course, because Styles wanted to tap into "the multitude of unique identities in our community."

The idea kicked off because of Styles' love of nail polish, and during the pandemic, he got the down time to put it into action. "I've always found that the moments in my life which have brought me the most joy are the small ones," the star told Dazed. "I really think that the essence of Pleasing is finding those little moments of joy and showing them to people," Styles added.

Harry Styles uses a clothing refrigerator

He doesn't just make money off of his fashion savvy. Harry Styles also spends money on fashion and the preservation of many of his most iconic looks. One of Styles' most influential designers, Harris Reed, spoke to GQ about what goes into making Styles', well, style. "I went a bit crazy, and that's when [Styles] got a lot more involved and was steering me in the direction he wanted," Reed said. "But Harry was so open to what I saw for him and what I wanted was an old-world elegance." Reed explained that he incorporated ruffles and flared pants for Styles' looks and was even responsible for the powder blue vest and trousers in Styles' "Lights Up" music video.

Considering that Styles' looks are sometimes more art installation than clothing, it makes sense that their storage process is intense. Reed explained that it's all top secret. "I can't say where it is located, but everything goes to an archive," Reed told GQ. "It's basically like a giant refrigerator — a frozen vault — somewhere in London where I am not going to disclose."

Not only is the clothing refrigerated, but it's also guarded. "But the clothes all have 24 hours surveillance, which you can look at via an iPad, specifically done for his outfits, and they have all been cryogenically frozen in time to preserve them," Reed went on. When Styles explained to his designer pal where the extra outfits were stored, Reed replied, "Oh, that's chic." We couldn't agree more.

His love of clothing costs a fortune

In perhaps the most obvious facet of Harry Styles' expenses, the musician shells out major cash for his clothing. The sartorial life has always been major for the star, and his sister, Gemma Styles, traced it back to their mother. "My mum loved to dress us up," she told Vogue, noting that mom Anne Twist loved making costumes for both of them. While Gemma wasn't fond of the pastime, Harry loved it. "As a kid I definitely liked fancy dress," he explained to the outlet, recalling that in one of his first plays, he was cast as a mouse. "I was really young, and I wore tights for that. ... I remember it was crazy to me that I was wearing a pair of tights. And that was maybe where it all kicked off!"

GQ called Harry Styles "one of the best-dressed musicians in the world" thanks to his boundary-pushing love of androgynous clothes, colorful looks, and old-world style. He wears pearls and sweater vests and sequined jumpsuits, so there's a playful unpredictability when it comes to what Styles will wear next. But a large part of his aesthetic success, and why clothing is such a primary part of his income and spending, is because he loves dressing up. For Styles, outfits are part of the larger art production. "There's so much joy to be had in playing with clothes," he said to Vogue. "I've never really thought too much about what it means — it just becomes this extended part of creating something."

Harry Styles' extravagant taste in art

Part of Harry Styles' aesthetic — and shopping bill — includes 20 pieces of art by the British artist Hayden Kays. A source told E! News back in 2014, "They are original works and they are all unique. They are not prints. They are all done on the same typewriter. Each piece is hand-typed and produced." Each of Kays' pieces cost Styles roughly $1,500 U.S. dollars.

Styles, as the source noted, has an affinity for Kays' worldview. "[Styles] has aligned himself with Hayden, who is quite controversial in the U.K. because he questions and prods the establishment," the insider added, noting that the two men "have a creative understanding and admire each other's creativity." The two artists seem to share an understanding of the power of art without taking themselves too seriously. In an interview with Delphian Gallery in 2018, Kays said, "I'm not deluded enough to think I can change the world. I'm only able to change my world." He added, "Art can open doors, Art can really move you, Art has got me here, Art gets me going, I believe in Art."

Styles has a similar combination of reverence and humility. "It's funny because I don't think of myself that way (as a style icon) ... but bringing people together is the thing I'm most proud of," he told Dazed in 2021. For Styles, it seems that any art that speaks to connection and togetherness is worthy of both acquiring and creating.

The singer-songwriter loves his real estate

A major expense for Harry Styles is real estate, and perhaps unsurprisingly, the major hubs where he purchases homes are London, New York, and Los Angeles. In 2016, he bought a monster of a mansion in the Hollywood Hills for $6.87 million but sold it in 2019 for less than he paid for it, per CNBC.

In 2019, he purchased property in Hampstead, a ritzy neighborhood in London, for just shy of $10 million U.S. dollars, according to Hello! magazine. By the spring of 2020, Styles acquired two more neighboring houses, and the speculation is that he is planning a massive renovation to combine the properties. While that's still uncertain, as of this writing, Styles' first purchase in London was a deeply emotional and significant one for him. Opening up to Vogue about walking into the home after renovations were complete, he said, "I went in for the first time and I cried. Because I just felt like I had somewhere. L.A. feels like holiday, but this feels like home."

But it seems like Styles can't quite quit the holiday vibe of Los Angeles. He and Olivia Wilde reportedly lived together in the Hollywood Hills in 2021 (via the New York Post), staying in a home belonging to Jeff Azoff, Styles' manager. Compared to his other real estate vibes, this home was much smaller and understated. And of course, his list wouldn't be complete without a pad in New York. A later publication by Hello! reports that Styles purchased an $8.7 million apartment in a Tribeca building that's famous for celebrity sightings.

Harry Styles owns a lot of expensive cars

With Harry Styles' evident interest in old world aesthetics and classical clothing, it's no surprise that he also favors vintage cars. One of his first cars, purchased at age 18, was a 1970s white Ford Capri for which he paid approximately $10,000 U.S. dollars. He was photographed driving the car in London and kept it in beautiful shape. Unfortunately though, Styles left the car in a parking garage when he went to the United States, the Daily Mail reports, where it apparently rusted and three of the tires went flat. A fellow client of the parking garage said of Styles' car: "The car hasn't moved for months and months and a vintage vehicle like that needs to be driven and shown off. It's a classic which will turn into a rust bucket if not careful." Oops.

But Styles was more predictable with his other vehicle choices. He was spotted driving an Audi R8 Coupe, worth approximately $125,000, according to The Sun. True to his English heritage, and much like Queen Elizabeth II herself, Styles has also been seen driving a Range Rover. He's also taken a spin in a Porsche 911 Sport Classic and even had, in 2012, a Ferrari California worth $195,000.

Despite these flashy choices, Styles can't seem to shake his love of vintage vehicles. He has also been spotted driving a Jaguar E-type, a 1960s classic that costs anywhere from $80,000 to over $200,000. He's also been spotted rolling around Los Angeles in a vintage, white Mercedes, so he's clearly got a soft spot for the classics.

He's had to shell out cash for security

While Harry Styles' global celebrity has obviously made him rich and famous, it's also cost him, and the singer has had to take extra precautions with security. In London, Styles had a stalker who reportedly broke into his home in February 2022 and got into a scrap with one of Styles' employees. Diana Tarazaga-Orero, according to The U.S. Sun, allegedly violated a restraining order that Styles was able to obtain in 2019 for her stalking. Tarazaga-Orero said in court: "Harry! I'm not going to hurt him. I love him."

In 2020, Styles was robbed at knifepoint in London by a group of men while walking home. He later told Howard Stern that it was on Valentine's Day and the men, who didn't recognize him, offered him weed at first and then demanded his cash. One of the men then asked for his phone and Styles refused. When some cars came up the road, Styles made a run for it and was thankfully able to get away safely.

In response, Styles started using a bodyguard, one of the same guards used by Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones, per The Sun. It's understandable that Styles took security inspiration from the music icon. "Like Mick, he has to take security very seriously," an insider told the outlet. "And as Mick is such an idol of his, it makes sense that he would look to him to inspire his choice of staff — as well as his choices of fashion and hairstyles."

The British star shares the wealth

While Harry Styles has raked in the cash, he's also extremely generous and gives back. During his first world tour, "Live on Tour," Styles raised $1.2 million for charity, Variety notes. He also got HeadCount involved, a nonpartisan organization that focuses on registering people to vote.

His world tour also made headlines for water conservation and a reduction in single-use water bottles, for both his crew and concert goers. According to Variety, he reduced "​​10,000 single-use water bottles by fans and 3,200 by the band and crew." Plus, he had 6,500 gallons of water recycled that was used on tour by transportation and backstage. Styles even promoted charity through his merchandise on the tour. He sold a set of three hair ties that read "Treat People with Kindness" and all proceeds went to charities in the cities where he performed. Per a later publication by Variety, Styles' 2021 U.S. leg of "Love on Tour" similarly brought in $1 million for various charities, including Black Votes Matter, Choose Love, and Physicians for Reproductive Health.

But Styles even brings this kindness into his personal life. While on vacation in Anguilla in the Caribbean with Adele and James Corden, he picked up the tab one night for a bill of $472.50 and left a tip of $2,020, according to People. It was in early January of 2020, so clearly a charming way to ring in the New Year and share the love (and wealth).

Harry Styles lavishes his partners with gifts

Harry Styles is also an extremely generous and doting partner in his romantic relationships. When the musician dated Taylor Swift, he supposedly gifted her with more than $1,300 worth of presents to celebrate her 23rd birthday, including vintage jewelry, a Jimmy Choo bag, and fragrance, according to The Daily Star (via Cosmopolitan). While in New York for New Year's Eve, Styles gave Swift a vintage bracelet that he found in England, The Sun reported (via Marie Claire). "He gave it to her at the plush hotel they stayed in while they were celebrating New Year in New York," an insider said. "Harry is head over heels for Taylor and even admitted he loves her while they were in the Big Apple."

But Styles' relationships are also symbiotic. In his relationship with director Olivia Wilde, it was Wilde who took a turn supporting Styles' brand. She has been spotted multiple times wearing apparel from his line, Pleasing, according to Vogue, and a jacket with "Love on Tour" on the back, the name of his second world tour.

Pleasing is certainly the operative word for Styles and Wilde's relationship. She told Vogue in December 2021: "In the past 10 years, as a society, we have placed so much more value on the opinion of strangers rather than the people closest to us. I'm happier than I've ever been. And I'm healthier than I've ever been, and it's just wonderful to feel that." Styles seems to know better than anyone that, more than money, love is everything.
