Emma Watson, Justin Bieber Claim 2011’s ‘Most Influential’ Hairstyle Awards

Forget Oscars, Grammys and VMAs, young celebs Emma Watson and Justin Bieber have just landed a superlative that tops them all – Most Influential Haircut.

According to the Wall Street Journal’s Fashion Highlights From 2011 piece, Bieber’s “swish fringe” and Watson’s “pixie cut” where the most requested – and thus, influential – haircuts of the year.

“Hairstylists are being inundated with requests,” the paper writes. “The enthusiasm plays out online, where the fastest-rising searches for celebrity haircuts on Google are for Ms. Watson and Mr. Bieber.”

The journal added that these looks mark a very significant change for hairstyle popularity, since for women, “short hair hasn’t been trendy since the ’90s,” and because men “may justifiably feel sheepish about asking for the cut.”

Other superlatives in the style world, according to WSJ?

Kanye West debuting his clothing line at Paris Fashion Week took “Biggest Runway Flop,” Michelle Obama’s Alexander McQueen dress at a state dinner snagged the ‘Most Overrated Fashion Faux Pas,’ and two wedding events made the list: Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries’ for “Most Spectacular Bridal Fiasco” and, on a classier note, Prince William and Kate Middleton’s royal spring wedding for “Fashion Event of the Year.”

What are your thoughts on Justin Bieber and Emma Watson‘s most influential hair nod? Do you tend to let celebrity hairstyles shape your own style, or do you wonder why people even care about such things?
