Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole has the best haircut in showbusiness, according to a new survey.

The X Factor judge's brunette locks were voted the most attractive in the world of celebrity in a poll of some 2,000 women.

Victoria Beckham's short cut was voted into second place while model Kelly Brook was placed third.

Top hairdresser Trevor Sorbie, who commissioned the poll, commented: "It's no surprise to us that Cheryl's hair came out on top. There is something very attractive about gorgeous glossy hair.

"Cheryl's hair always looks in perfect condition with a great colour, which really suits her."

He added: "I also love Victoria's new style it's a great example of our daring British spirit - never afraid to try something new."

However, the respondents also had something to say about their most hated celebrity hairstyles with Amy Winehouse's beehive - and latterly curly mop cut - named the worst.

The Duchess of Cornwall, Courtney Love and Kelly Osbourne were also named in the top five of least envied haircuts.

The top ten best celebrity hairstyles are:

1 Cheryl Cole
2 Victoria Beckham

4 Keira Knightley
5 Kylie Minogue
6 Kate Beckinsale
