Longevita Hair Transplant put together a list of TV shows known for their iconic hairstyles based on a variety of articles recognising the show for their hair.
Search quarries structured as ‘[TV Show] hairstyle’ were then used to scrape Pinterest data to find the number of boards and pins associated, to determine which TV hair was the most popular.
A third-party Pinterest API called py3-pinterest was used acquire the data. The number of boards returned for each query was capped at a maximum of 999.
It is to be noted, with this web scraping approach, these figures are an estimation as some pins and boards including photos of the TV hair did not have a description or title, so so had to be filtered manually at discretion.
Boards that were not relevant to the search term were removed at discretion. Shows that did not have conclusive results were dropped altogether and other search terms were also used in an attempt to retrieve relevant results.
All data was collected on 22/04/2021.
