Spears' hair rated worst

Which celebrities have the most terrible tresses? Whose locks are loveliest? The American public identified the hautest and most horrific hairstyles of 2005 in the 12th annual "Best Tressed" survey conducted by Sally Beauty and Harris Interactive.

In the poll of 1,028 U.S. adults, Catherine Zeta-Jones was voted the female celebrity with the best hair, followed by Tyra Banks and Eva Longoria. George Clooney ranked highest among male celebrities, with Antonio Banderas and Matthew McConaughey in second and third.

Britney Spears, followed by Diana Ross and Lil' Kim, rated the worst hairstyles among female celebrities. Donald Trump won the distinction among men, trailed by Snoop Dogg and Prince Charles.

Peroxide packs a powerful punch, and "worst bottle blonde" honors for celebs went to Anna Nicole Smith and Hulk Hogan. Paris Hilton and Christina Aguilera rounded out the top three among female stars, with Brad Pitt and Billy Idol ranking second and third among men.

When pollsters asked voters about their own hairstyling habits, 31 percent reported visiting a hair salon every five weeks or more often, and 45 percent said they change their hairstyle about every five years.

And speaking of hair ...

There's an American Idol -type competition under way for hair "style artists" around the world.

The winner of the 2006 Style Stars Global Hair Contest will win prizes totaling more than $150,000. Among the loot: a six-day trip for two at Hotel Delano in Miami's South Beach and $5,000 in cash.

Hairstylist Jesse Briggs, founder of Fort Lauderdale-based Yellow Strawberry salons, created the contest along with his hairstylist wife, Flo Briggs.

"It's smoking," he said. "People are entering from Russia and all over the world. There are so many great hidden talents out there who might never get the recognition they deserve without the exposure that an international hair competition like this gives them."

Only curly or wavy hairstyles are permitted, and six before-and-after photos must be submitted of the front, side and back of the model's head. Entries must be completed online by May 15.

A panel of judges will select 10 finalists in May, and the grand prize winner will be named June 1. A nonrefundable administrative fee of $75 is required. To enter and get complete rules, see style-stars.com.
