Rachel Greene does it again!

Jennifer Aniston's shag in the American sitcom, Friends was voted as one of the most copied hairstyles in the world.

Back home too, there's no scarcity of hairstyles that have inspired fans to sport the same.

Here's a look at some of Bollywood's most-copied hairstyles:


Besides playing one of the hottest ghosts on celluloid in Woh Kaun Thi, the sweet-faced sensation of the sixties is best remembered  for her Audrey Hepburn-inspired cutesy fringe, simply known as the 'Sadhana cut.'  

While the style remains synonymous with the Waqt beauty, it saw popular endorsements from the likes of Neelam and Juhi Chawla in later years.

Long hair is an enduring Hindi film heroine stereotype.

Yet lending it her brand of sexy twist, the svelte siren sported flicks on the either side of the parting.

A huge trend among ladies -- from Bindiya Goswami to Bhagyshree.

Madhuri Dixit

Despite being bad news for hair, the frizzy look became a rage among girls and pretty much ALL her colleagues.

Two things made a lasting impression in Mahesh Bhatt's Aashiqui.

Nadeem-Shravan's melodies and Rahul Roy's floppy mop.

Urmila Matondkar

When it comes to experimenting, Urmila Matondkar is always game.

After the Rangeela transformation, the petite actress chopped off her luxuriant mane to sport a chic bob, quite reminiscent of Aniston's legendary haircut.  

Aamir Khan

When it comes to hair fashion, Aamir Khan covered the long and short of it.

But it's his spiky look in Dil Chahta Hai and funky buzz cut in Ghajini we loved the most.

Like Urmila, PZ loves to play with her hair's length.  

But her sleek, straightened style teamed with a thick pair of glasses, a la Ali Macgraw is what caught every impressionable girl's fancy.

John Abraham

Fans love to ape Salman's style.

Be it his fancy jacket from Maine Pyaar Kiya, love for tight-fitting jeans, penchant for bracelets or Tere Naam's rather hideous hair do.

Priyanka Chopra

It's summery. It's sexy. It's oh-so-comfortable. 

Priyanka Chopra worked up the Victoria Beckham bob so well; no wonder it became a hit.

Deepika Padukone

The leggy model turned actress snipped off her locks to sport a hip, layered, shoulder length number to a wow-inducing effect to lend her character in Karthik Calling Karthik a definitive look.

Everyone else at the beauty salon has been requesting the same ever since.
