I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night, you know just to check [it] out, Mick Jagger told CNN back in 2012. It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float.”

1) Similar hair

One of the first comparisons people automatically thought of when it came to Harry and Mick Jagger was the brown floppy hair.

2) Harry has also performed with Ronnie Wood

Who could forget when one Direction performed with Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood at The X Factor UK finale? It was literally like seeing Ronnie Wood perform with Mick Jagger 2.0, and anybody who knows anything about the Stones definitely thought of Mick Jagger during the performance, especially because Harry was literally all over Ronnie Wood, and spent more time jamming on stage beside him than the rest of the band.

3) Harry is a rock star

Yes we know, Harry comes from a “pop” group, but anyone who has seem some of Harry’s performances knows that deep down, Harry really is a rock star.

Not to take away from the rest of the guys, but Harry Styles has just got that “it” factor which means that all eyes are on him during a lot of their performances…another comparable trait to Mick Jagger.

6) His lothario reputation

Either Harry has become more private these days, or he has seriously calmed down in recent times when it comes to women. However, Harry’s early days in One Direction earned him a reputation as a lothario when it comes to women, with new articles coming out every week about who the star was dating or hooking up with. Mick Jagger has also been known for his female shenanigans as well.
