Aside from the towering hills (which we avoid at all costs), San Francisco is pretty much a cyclist's dream city. With a solid biking community, progressive laws, and streamlined routes, you're bound to see almost as many bikes as cars on the road on your way to work. The only pitfall to pedaling as your main mode of transportation? Arriving at your desk a sweaty mess with hair that looks dirty and tangled — or like you've been hanging out in a wind tunnel.
We tapped S.F.-based stylist Katie Nash
to show us a thing or two about which 'dos survive the best under your helmet. In honor of National Bike To Work Week
(which kicks off today) and our own city's Bike To Work Day
on May 14, we tested out three unique styles that are perfect for girls with long tresses, so you can whip around the city and arrive at your destination without a hair out of place. Model: Lana Kohn at Stars Model Management.
