Styles - who was mocked by his ex Taylor Swift at the Grammys this week - could manage only sixth place in the poll by We Love Pop magazine.
Floppy-haired George Shelley from 'X Factor' rejects Union J finished a place above him at number five in the poll.
Runner-up in the list was Nathan Sykes from boyband The Wanted, while a third member of 1D made the top 10 with Louis Thomlinson in eighth spot.
We Love Pop editor Malcolm Mackenzie says: "Like most people, we expected Harry Styles to come out top - but it seems girls are getting fed up with pop stars who cover themselves in tattoos, smoke and jump from one girlfriend to the next. These results show that good boys are hot at the moment."

> IN PICS: 14 FANTASY CELEB COUPLES FOR VALENTINE'S DAY
Pete Burns and Lil Kim
We can't imagine what these two would have in common...
Joey Essex and Helen Flanagan
We're sure they'd have deep intellectual debates about Iraq and the economic crisis.
Tom Daley and Cheryl Cole
Cheryl may be blissfully in love with Tre, but Tom's already said he is willing to Fight for Her Love.
Jodie Marsh and Leoandro Penna
It wouldn't be the first time Jodie has snared one of Katie Price's exes...
Harry Styles and Nick Grimshaw
Surely it is just a matter of time before bromance turns into romance?
Kerry Katona and Alex Reid
A match perfectly made for a magazine deal.
Taylor Swift and Russell Brand
Surely there isn't one celeb left that either of them haven't dated?
Cara Delevigne and Eddie Redmayne
Their children would have the perfect lips and the bushiest eyebrows. Oh, and they'd have a kick ass double-barrelled surname.
Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen
They certainly wouldn't be a good influence on each other, but there is no denying they are kindred spirits.
Simon Cowell and David Walliams
All that flirtation on 'Britain's Got Talent' has got to mean something, right?
Louis Smith and Kelly Brook
Louis is looking for his dream lady, Kelly loves nothing more than sporty toyboys. What exactly are they waiting for?
Selena Gomez and Niall Horan
Selena loves a teen pop sensation, and with Niall being the love-term singleton of One Direction it seems only natural that these two should get it on.
Nicki Minaj and Ortise Williams
She previously turned him down, but we reckon it's high time that she gives him One Shot.
Alan Carr and Gok Wan
We can't believe they're not together already!
