Audrey Hepburn's beehive has topped a poll for the most iconic hairstyles.

The late actresses' sophisticated bouffant updo -featured in her role as New York socialite Holly Golightly in 1961 film 'Breakfast At Tiffany's'- topped a list of 50 hairstyles compiled from a poll of 2,000 people in the UK, despite having it's screen debut half a century ago.

Toni & Guy global creative director, Sacha Mascolo-Tarbuck - who conducted the survey for the brand's 50th anniversary- said: ''The image of her with her dark hair piled up while she is holding a cigarette holder is one of the most recognisable film images of all time, The fact that the famous style is still topping these kinds of lists half a century since the film was released shows how iconic it really is.''

Falling closely behind in second place on the list is Elvis Presley who garnered fame for his iconic quiff hairdo while Bob Marley landed a respectable third place for his signature dreadlocked style.

Jennifer Aniston's layered hairstyle adorned with multiple highlights -which later became known as the 'Rachel' during her time on US sitcom 'Friends'- was awarded fourth place while Amy Winehouse's voluminous beehive earned her a place at number five.
