We get a wide variety of emails in the newsroom. Many are press releases, updates, hard news pitches, or of a serious nature.

And then…

You stumble across a water cooler story. You know, the ones that get people talking. Great Clips just sent out a press release revealing “The Greatest/Worst Hairstyles of All Times.”

I can relate because I’ve had a lot of hairstyles over the years. Some good, some bad. Believe me, I have the emails to prove it. My parents watch every single newscast–they’d even wake up at 4:30 to turn the morning show on–thankfully, I get much needed advice from them.

How do you stack up? Here’s what Great Clips revealed in their survey: (credit to Great Clips Great Stuff Program)

The GREATEST Hairstyle of All Time for Women:

Both sexes agreed and most often ranked these styles in the top 3

#1) Medium Layers (79%) the #1 cut of all time came from our famous FRIEND, Rachel.

#2) Long, Straight Hair (69%)

#3) Bangs (45%)

 The GREATEST Hairstyle of All Time for Men:

Both sexes agreed and most often ranked these styles in the top 3

#1) Bed Head (72%) – The best cut for men comes from that teenage boy band whose rise to stardom has been One Direction – straight to the top!

#2) Side Part (60%)

#3) Hockey Hair (53%)

So what dos are a definite DON’T? The survey reveals:

The WORST Hairstyle of All Time for Women:

Both sexes agreed and most often ranked these styles as the worst 3

#1) Perm (60%)

#2) Feathered (56%)

#3) Asymmetrical (54%)

For men, the bowl cut went out with Moe of the 3 Stooges. The survey shows:

The WORST Hairstyle of ALL Time for Men:

Both sexes agreed and most often ranked these styles as the worst 3

#1) Bowl Cut (63%)

#2) Caesar (57%)

#3) Faux Hawk (45%)

The survey also shows:

  • Both men and women have had 3 – 5 hairstyles in their lifetime.
  • Most folks chose a hairstyle based on the shape of their face (66%) and maintenance (62%).  More than 1 out of 3 people (38%) base their hairstyle on what their significant other finds attractive. Men are more concerned with their significant other’s opinion (47%) over women (31%).
  • Men and women both overwhelmingly agree they would not break up with someone over a bad haircut (Men 89%, Women 94%).
  • Both sexes also agree they would have the guts to tell their significant other he/she would look better with a different haircut or style (Men 78%, Women 93%).

My motto is if all else fails, throw a hat on. Too bad I can’t do that on the news some days!
