Hairdressers have voted Audrey Hepburn's hairstyle in Breakfast At Tiffany's as the most "influential" ever.

The actress's French pleat is apparently the most requested style in salons in the UK - above more modern styles including Victoria Beckham's bob, the "Pob", and Jennifer Aniston's haircut in Friends called "The Rachel".

Vintage looks reigned supreme in the chart, which was produced from a poll of Hairdressing Council members.

Marilyn Monroe's platinum blonde curls were second in the poll and Twiggy's crop was third.

The top 10 was not confined to hairstyles from reality however - the little mermaid Ariel was fourth.

Aniston came fifth, ahead of Beckham, and they were followed by Cheryl Cole's long chestnut brown locks.

The run down then went more extreme with R'n'B star Rihanna's daring bright red style at eight, and Demi Moore's completely shaved head for the film GI Jane at nine.

Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria's richly-coloured do was in at 10.

The survey was carried out to mark the release of Disney DVD Tangled, a retake on the fairytale Rapunzel, which the company says has encouraged little girls to grow their hair long.
