London: Spanish painter Salvador Dali`s facial hair has topped a new poll of the best-known moustaches of all time.

According to almost a quarter of Britons, the surrealist’s meticulously waxed moustache is the most famous, reports the Telegraph.

The poll, which surveyed 14,144 British men for MSN Him, found 1990s wrestling star Hulk Hogan’s trademark ``handlebar`` number came second with 18 per cent of the vote.

Albert Einstein landed the third spot with 13 per cent, followed by 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche and then comic actor Charlie Chaplin.

MSN Him is sponsoring the Movember charity, which encourages the growing of moustaches this month.

The top ten most famous moustaches are:

Salvador Dali (24 per cent)

Hulk Hogan (18 per cent)

Albert Einstein (13 per cent)

Friedrich Nietzsche (12 per cent)

Charlie Chaplin (11 per cent)

Freddie Mercury (11 per cent)
