NUMERO UNO: This Jenner snap has garnered a staggering 2.9 million double taps to become the most-liked photo on Instagram.

Like all true style icons, where Kendall Jenner leads, 32 million Instagram fans follow, and now the model has once more proven the extent of her influence by starting the new trend for "heart hair" selfies.

The US beauty kickstarted the movement earlier in the summer when she posted this picture of herself lying on the floor in a gorgeous white lacy dress with her brunette locks spread out around her face, arranged into a halo of heart shapes. She captioned the photo with a simple heart emoji.

The cute snap struck a chord with hair and beauty lovers everywhere, and has since garnered a staggering 2.9 million double taps to become the most-liked photo on Instagram – bumping big sister Kim, who previously held the title for her wedding snap with Kanye, off the top spot.

Long-haired social media users immediately set about recreating the pose themselves, and #hearthair is now definitely a thing, with 7,683 photos and counting. From a great way to show off rainbow hair to braids, Instagrammers are delicately arranging their tendrils into romantic compositions. And the trend isn't just for girls – men, women and children have all been getting in on the act.

Some of our favourites include this ballerina pose by @aviouslymee titled "Channeling Kendall Jenner", this ombre 'do by @sarahjaemie captioned "Our hearts linger where least expected" and this rose petal version by @lucy.r.smith. Also kudos to @cedarcottontrail for his lovely mane!

Kendall's Instagram presence is on the rise, with the model using her account to showcase her recent high-profile fashion campaigns such as those for Fendi and Balmain, as well as sharing behind-the-scenes fashion shots and "off duty" moments with her family, the raucous Kardashian clan. — AFP Relaxnews
