Recent research reveals the celebrity hairstyles people are searching for when they’re looking to be inspired … and some of these results may surprise you.

Cosmetic surgery education site Tajmeeli recently analysed global Google searches to identify the most in-demand celebrity hairstyles over the past 12 months, which you can see in-full below.

Which celebrity’s hairstyle do we search for the most?

With over 188,400 searches over the past 12 months, pop superstar Billie Eilish topped the charts by some margin, likely due to sporting two standout hair looks in such a short span – the already iconic neon styles (which gained over 60,000 searches on it’s own), and the recent platinum blonde.

Singer and actor Selena Gomez took second spot with over 175,200 searches over the past year, and fellow ex-Disney star Ariana Grande took third with over 170,400 searches. Although Ariana is most known for her high ponytail, a surprising amount of the searches were gathered for ‘Ariana Grande Hair Down’ – 34,800 to be exact.

When it came to male hairstyles, A-lister Justin Bieber stole the show with over 122,400 searches, with basketball megastar Lebron James and ex-footballer David Beckham also making the list with 90,000 and 81,000 searches respectively.

The research also segmented the most popular hairstyle types for each celebrity. Interestingly, more than half of the most popular searches were for short hair, suggesting many of us are keen to sport a choppier style.

Below is a breakdown of the top 20 most-searched celebrity hair looks, including how many searches they received in the past 12 months:

  1. Billie Eilish – 188,400
