Beyoncé's barnet has been voted the most iconic of the last decade according to a new poll. We've long been in love with her changing tresses which have transformed from dark to blonde to sleek and chic to big volume curls. No matter how she styles her mane the result is always the same - fabulous.

And now the star has the stats to prove it. Beyoncé Knowles was voted as the top hair icon of the last decade – according to a new poll by hair experts at Fabriah.com.

The ‘Single Ladies’ singer topped the poll with 20% of the vote but was closely followed by David Beckham on 18%.
In third place was the former Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, who bagged 15% of the vote whilst blonde princess Christina Aguilera came fourth with 12%.

One in ten people named Amy Winehouse’s beehive the most iconic, bringing it in fifth place in the top ten.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson with his unruly blond locks just missed out of a top five spot with only eight per cent of the vote.

And no hair poll would be complete without Kate Middleton and Kate Moss who both scored 5% of the vote.

Francesca Davies from Fabriah.com commented: “It takes a lot for hair to become iconic and even more so for someone to become a hair icon.

“We have mapped their changing hair styles over the years – many of us have even had a go at copying one or two of them.

“However, the fact of the matter is, every single person in our top ten could be recognised purely by their hair alone.”

One respondent commented: “Beyoncé has been a hair icon of mine for such a long time, in fact I would go as far as saying she has never had a bad hair style.”
