Elvis Crowned

It's the King of the cuts ... Elvis Presley's quiff and legendary sideburns have been voted the most iconic male hairstyle of all time. Presley's haircut shocked polite society in the early 50s but came to symbolise the rebelliousness of rock and roll. Elvis eventually had his locks shorn off when he was drafted into the US Army in 1958 - making front page news around the world. Trendy David Beckham was runner-up in the poll of 1,500 men by Argos, commissioned to support its mens' grooming range. Beckham sparks a nationwide rush to the hairdressers every time he changes his look. In the last few years the star has sported shoulder-length hair, a Mohican and Rio Ferdinand-style 'Cornrows' but is probably most famed for his £300 skinhead. Third in the influential locks list was reggae legend Bob Marley's magnificent dreadlocks. Marley's hair, flailing in his wake while singing in concert, is one of the classic pop images of the 20th Century. A spokesman for Argos said: "For most men, doing their hair is a real headache - they can't be seen to spend longer on it than the girls. "To come up with a unique and pioneering look is extremely difficult to pull off - it is a very fine line between a look that's iconic and one that's inane. "Over the last few years, we've seen a sharp rise in the number of grooming products designed specifically for men." Other famous hairstyles included in the slick list were the original rebel James Dean's, Michael Jackson's afro and Brit luvvie Hugh Grant's foppish mop. Top 20 Most Iconic Hairstyles 1.

Elvis Presley's unique hairstyle was original and is still the best. Mob-top was not original-The 3 Stooges's MOE had it long time ago.
