A new poll by Fabriah.com asked 1,000 people to vote for the worst hair fads of the last 13 years, with the Barbadian singer scoring a massive 20% of the vote.
David Beckham’s infamous cornrows and Kelly Osbourne’s Mohawk weren't far behind the ‘Skrillex’ trend, named after the dubstep DJ's long dark style with one side of his head shaved.
Beckham's braids scored a huge 19% of the vote, narrowly missing out on the Worst Hair Trend title. The footballer later admitted he must have been drunk when we decided to opt for the style!
In third place was Hollywood A-lister Scarlett Johansson and her infamous mullet followed by Kelly Osbourne’s Mohawk, which scored 16% and 14% respectively.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s ‘greasy’ hairstyle won fifth place with 12%, beating singing superstar Christina Aguilera and her dreadlocks into sixth place.
Justin Timberlake’s blonde curls just topped comedian Russell Brand’s mad hairstyle to be voted as the seventh worst hair trend with six per cent of the vote and the final two places were taken up by music mogul Simon Cowell’s flattop middle parting and eccentric singer Nicki Minaj’s myriad of colourful hairstyles and wigs.
One voter had this to say: “What is with the fascination with the ‘Skrillex’ haircut? All these celebrities think they’re so cool, but you can just see kids following this stupid trend. How are they going to get jobs with a half shaven head?”
Another said: “David Beckham has had some brilliant hairstyles but those cornrows were a shocker. It looks like Victoria dared him to do it. All those people who copied him should be ashamed of themselves.”
One lady commented: “The one thing I can’t stand is guys with shoulder length hair. Russell Brand looks like he needs a good makeover. Seriously, how does he manage to look after it?”
Francecsa Davies from Fabriah.com commented on the results: “I am not at all surprised the ‘Skrillex’ look claimed the prize as the worst hair trend of the 21st Century.
“What is surprising however, is the number of people still copying the style. I would never have imagined the haircut becoming so popular.
“The list shows that even the most stylish celebrities can make a hair mistake, David Beckham’s cornrows and Christina Aguilera’s dreadlocks definitely spring to mind.”
