Elvis’ quiff takes the top spot closely followed by the Rachel and Marilyn Monroe.

Places four, five and six however, belong more to the world of fantasy and fascination with David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust, Marge Simpson’s blue air and Amy Winehouse’s beehive pipping Farrah Fawcett’s flicks and Twiggy’s crop in the ranking.

Unfortunately for the Hillbilly rockers out there, the mullet has been combed over and blown away after being voted the worst hairstyle of all time. The style which came into its own in the 80s topped the ‘hair don’ts’ category followed by the mohawk, mohican and bowl cut.

The styles were voted for by more than 1,900 people polled by Argos – which is celebrating the release of TROLLS at cinemas across the country this Friday (21st) with an A-List line up of toys.

Famed for their impressive hairstyles, the Troll toys are making a welcome comeback and are sure to shoot to the top of Christmas lists this year. The range includes the Trolls Princess Poppy Wig, styled to look just like Poppy’s hair in the film, the Trolls Jewellery Box featuring the ‘Get Back Up Again’ hit song from the feature and the Poppy Doll, a loveable, colourful princess who can speak 25 phrases.

We caught up with celebrity hairstylist, Andrew Barton who has recently discovered a fascination for a new type of hair trend in his salon.
