Anne Hathaway's decision to cut off her hair for her role in Les Misérables definitely influenced her film career (the brunette beauty did, after all, take home an Oscar for her portrayal of the troubled Fantine), but now it appears her cropped cut has had quite the effect on other women, too.

At least, that's according to a poll by the Hairdressing Council of Great Britain and Universal Pictures, who asked a thousand people to weigh in on the most influential onscreen haircut of all time. Hathaway's pretty pixie beat Jennifer Aniston's laid back loose curls in Along Came Polly, which came in second place, as well as screen legend Audrey Hepburn's bold updo in Charade, which finished third.

The close-cropped cut is definitely popular among celebs, with Miley Cyrus and Ginnifer Goodwin among the gutsy Hollywood gals who have opted for the low-maintenance ‘do. More recently, Maggie Gyllenhaal debuted her own cute pixie, though Hathaway's hair had nothing to do with the star's drastic change. Instead, the actress went short to deal with a hard-to-work-with bowl cut she had done for a film.

Meanwhile Michelle Williams, is growing out her signature super short cropped cut after rocking it for many years, making room for Hathaway to become Hollywood's pixie poster girl. 

What do you think? Did Anne ever have you considering a pixie?
