Earlier this week they were voted the best smilers in Britain but it's not just the perfect teeth of the Duchess of Cambridge and Holly Willoughby that is coveted by British women. We also love their big and bouncy hair.
The Duchess of Cambridge has been voted as having the best barnet with the This Morning presenter coming in second in the poll.
Kate, famed for luscious locks, topped the survey which was carried out by salon products retailer Fabriah.com.

The Royal polled over a quarter of the vote while Holly came second with just under a fifth.
Experts at Fabriah.com compiled a shortlist of the top ten celebrity coiffeurs before opening it up to a public vote.
The poll of 500 women showed big hair with volume and curls is definitely on trend with singer Lana Del Rey, who has a long, wavy hair, coming in third.
Meanwhile Jennifer Aniston – who once had the most sought after hair with her 'Rachel' style from Friends – showed she is still popular with her current sleek look coming in fourth.

Francesca Davies from Fabriah.com said the results reflect the times as Kate is currently the fashion icon of the moment with women clamouring to copy her style.
She said: 'Truly great hair comes about rarely
and when it does it is a real trend setter. If we had taken this poll
ten years ago Jennifer Aniston would have probably been number one.

'The Duchess of Cambridge has become
somewhat of a fashion goddess. Anything she wears seems to fly
immediately off the shelves, likewise hairdressers across the country
are seeing an increasing demand for the Middleton-style locks.'
The bottom three places in the poll went to Kim Kardashian and Nicky Minaj, who both polled four per cent, and The X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos who scored three.
Ms Davies said this proves women are currently seeking a more natural look over coloured hair and extensions.
'I think we are beginning to see the start of the backlash against fakery in hairstyles which is part of the reason I believe the likes of Nicky Minaj and Tulisa polled so poorly,' she added.
