Which Celebrity Hairstyles are the Most Copied?

One of the most common scenarios in a beauty salon is a woman coming in with a picture of a Hollywood celebrity, asking the stylist to copy a hairstyle. Since the time of Princess Diana, women from all parts of the world have been taking their hairstyle cues from popular personalities, music artists and celebrities. When taking a hairstyle inspiration from the looks of other people, it is important to also ask your stylist whether a specific length, cut or style will suit you. For instance, Meg Ryan’s shaggy haircut may not necessarily work for women with prominent jawlines. A hairstyle that frames the face to soften your facial lines would be more suitable.
