Cheryl Cole 's hairstyle is the most copied by women

Have you ever walked into a hair salon with photograph of celebrity and asked for the same hair cut, hairstyle or color?

Rest assured because you are in very good company as almost four in ten women regularly use pictures of a star’s hairstyle for inspiration.

So which celebrity hairstyle is the most mimicked by women?

Over the past few months there have been three different polls, Travelodge, Salon Service and the latest by Toni&Guy, and in all the surveys, several thousand women were asked which celebrity hairstyle that they would like most to copy and in all three polls, Cheryl Cole topped the charts as the most sought after hairstyle.

Cheryl Cole’s luscious wavy brunette tresses not only head the charts but in one case she was listed twice, coming in sixth when she briefly dyed her hair in 2010 a fiery mahogany that sent sales of red hair dye soaring.

From wavy brunette to wavy blonde This Morning’s host Holly Willoughby hairstyle was second on the poll by Toni&Guy, that surveyed 2000 women.

Celebrity Juice co-star Kelly Brook’s luscious brunette tresses were the third most desired by women, while fourth place went to the Duchess of Cambridge and mother-to-be Kate Middleton and her long wavy hair.

Jennifer Aniston’s ‘The Rachel’ had women walking around as Rachel clones for years with the bouncy, square layered hairstyle, even if Aniston hated it, and is still popular today along with her latest layered cut.

Actress Cameron Diaz was seventh, and the first on the list with short cropped hair, while New Girl star Zooey Deschanel's fringe put her into the eighth spot on the poll.

American socialite and reality show star Kim Kardashian’s long and shiny locks was the ninth most popular hairstyle, while Les Mis star Anne Hathaway’s short pixie crop completed the top ten and now that she’s dyed it a stunning blonde, it will no doubt push her further up the charts.

Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck, Global Creative Director for Toni&Guy, who commissioned the latest research, said about the results, ‘Cheryl’s long brunette hair has been popular for some time now. You can wear it in curls one day, straight the next and in a smart up-do for a night out. Perhaps that’s why they are so popular with women.’

'The hair styles featured at the top of the list are very versatile and can be made to look different fairly easily'.

'We see millions of women each year requesting hair similar to celebrities, from Cheryl, Holly and Kelly’s classic looks right through to Rihanna’s or Rita Ora’s more daring styles.'It will be interesting to see who the next big celebrity inspiration will be.'
