British actor Audrey Hepburn’s hairstyle in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s has been named the most influential style ever. Hepburn’s french pleat in the 1961 film, in which she played lead character Holly Golightly, has been given the honour after hairdressers voted it to the top of their list in a Hairdressing Council poll. Other vintage cuts in the list included Marilyn Monroe’s trademark blonde curls, which were second, and model Twiggy’s crop in third. Actor Jennifer Aniston also made it to the top list for her Friends character Rachel Green’s hairstyle, while Victoria Beckham’s bob cut was also among the frontrunners. These hair have also inspired Bollywood actors, who have worn the iconic looks with a desi touch.

Here’s how.

*Actor Audrey Hepburn’s french pleat that she worn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s is voted as the hottest hairdo. Closer home in Bollywood Bipasha Basu has drawn inspiration from the look.

*Actor Marilyn Monroe’s blonde tight curls have always been revered by hairstylists. Actor Kangna Ranaut has adopted the iconic style by turning her grunge hair into tight curls.

*Actor Jennifer Aniston’s famous ‘Rachel haircut’ was a rage at hair salons with girls wanting to get the look. Bollywood star Preity Zinta sported a similar look with straight hair and front bangs.

*Singer-turned-designer Victoria Beckham’s ‘Posh bob’ is one of her best looks. Indian actor Lara Dutta chopped off her locks in a bob few seasons ago taking inspiration from Victoria.

*Model Twiggy’s short crop churned a huge fan base for her. It seems she found a great fan in Bollywood actor Gul Panag too who had cut her tresses in a sleek short crop sometime back.
