DENTON, Texas, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- The 16th annual Sally Beauty Best Tressed® Survey takes a look back at 2009's best and worst celebrity hairstyles. The survey, commissioned by Sally Beauty Supply, asked American women to cast a vote on the good, the bad and the ugly in celebrity hairstyles from the past year, as the upcoming awards season nears.

This year's survey found that women love the luscious locks of Jennifer Aniston, but they may be more interested in watching for the outrageous hairstyles of the over-the-top Lady Gaga. In the men's category, the world's most famous bachelor, George Clooney, rose to the top of the pack for the second year in a row, while dread-locked rapper Lil' Wayne was rated as the worst. Kelly Ripa's tresses won her the title of best tressed in the talk show hostess category and Halle Berry's short 'do inspired the most people to chop off their own.
