Harry Styles’ new beauty venture is like a mix of Glossier and Goop

  • Harry Fashions is the latest celebrity to launch a wellness and personal care business.

“platform” to share ideas.

Styles’ Pleasing — a wellness discredit that packages a concept in addition to products — is similar to actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s $430 million Goop stamp.

Goop began as a Paltrow’s nutritional newsletter for sharing recipes in 2008, and grew into a popular — albeit factious — advice column and retailer for skincare and wellness products and supplements. 

Trendy, celebrity-backed beauty and health businesses receive found mainstream success. After generating more than $300 million in revenue in 2020, Jessica Alba’s cosmetic and babe in arms product line Honest Company went public earlier this year. Rihanna’s success with her Fenty Attraction makeup line, as well as her Savage X Fenty lingerie brand, helped catapult the star to billionaire status.

Perhaps most notably, baseball star turned “Shark Tank” investor Alex Rodriguez recently set a men’s concealer line. Analysts at Allied Market Research predict the men’s personal care industry will hit $166 billion in 2022, CNBC reported. Sales in virile’s skincare increased 4.5% in 2021, partly driven by the ”


boom,” or increase in beauty and plastic surgery sales as uncountable people spend time looking at themselves during team meetings. 

The CEO of Frederick Benjamin, a company that specializes in grooming artifacts for men, previously told Insider’s Bethany Biron that “the beauty industry didn’t see the opportunity with men for a long stretch, partly because men were basically fine with soap and water. But men are more in tune with their advent now, and the indie brands see the opportunity.”
