HARRY Styles hates his hair.

The One Direction hunk is known for his curly locks but admits his mane can be a ‘’pain’’ because it ‘’gets in the way’’.

Asked what annoys him most, he said: ‘’It’s hard because it’s kind of my favourite and also my least favourite thing... my hair! I really like it but sometimes it can get in the way, especially when I’m going for a run. Sometimes it’s a real pain.’’

The 18-year-old singer - who has been romantically linked with a string of older women including Caroline Flack and Natalie Imbruglia -admits he prefers the company of older people and thinks he comes across as wiser than his years.

The ‘One Thing’ hitmaker added in an interview with Now magazine: ‘’It’s nice to hang out with people who are maybe in a later stage of what I’m going through right now. Some of my friends who are a bit older tell me that I am [mature]. That’s nice for me.’’                           –ES
