She’s had a lot of strong looks, and the massive blonde quiff was just one. Back in 2010, she rocked this look with prowess, our favourite variation of it being what we like to affectionately nickname the "poodle cascade".
This trend for a blonde up-do probably started with trendy designer Henry Holland. When Jedward oh-so-bnoxiously copied the style, Henners’ mate Agyness got well aggy, complaining: “They stole that from Henry though, didn’t they? Henry’s had that since we were 12 years old.” FIGHT!
Emeli is a pretty mellow sort of girl, with her songs, such as Read All About It, being the type of easy listening fare you could easily cry to on a glum Sunday. But she switches things up with her big blonde quiff, which somehow defies gravity, like a lovely lemon meringue perched atop her head.
Our favourite be-quiffed monsters are the Grimes twins, John and Edward. Their hyperactivity and their, um…dancing made them charming enough, but the vertiginous hair was the proper clincher that did them so well in The X Factor 2009. They occasionally sweep the fringe forward and end up looking like male models.
He’s the blond bombshell of One Direction, and just like his fellow Irish X Factor alumni Jedward, he likes to flip his locks up and down, keeping the fans guessing. And LOVING it!
When she went onto the Celebrity Big Brother house in early 2012, she immediately found some new friends in the form of, yep, you guessed it…Jedward. Joking that they could now call themselves “Jedward-Ka” as they styled their trio of triangular hairdos together.
When he was on The X Factor 2007, the Welsh baritone wowed us not only with his intimidating blue steel glares at the camera, but with his pure albino locks, carefully crafted into a short, sharp quiff. “Hipster Draco Malfoy” doesn’t even cover it.
Watching the VMAs from the sofa – she wasn’t invited to the prestigious awards, it seems, Gaga told Miley to never mind the haters: “u out-dressed+styled everyone last night. If anyone gives you shit about that haircut pay no mind. u look like Brigitte Nielson.” Which is sort of a compliment, if she meant Brigitte back in her prime.
It wasn’t quite the same cut that all these other stars have, but we’d be doing you a disservice if we didn’t bring you fit pictures of David Beckham on a near-daily basis, right? Here he is rocking his bizarre “Hoxton fin” in 2002. From the off-centre centre bit to the "go faster" stripes, there was a LOT going on up top back then. Something we rarely get to say about Becks.
And of course we couldn't forget Cameron Diaz’s perfectly coiffed loopy quiff in There’s Something About Mary. We’re not sure that the hair gel she’s used could be marketed as well as the Brylcreem David Beckham used to use and promote, but seems to do the trick just as well!
