    In the beauty department, there's perhaps no more agonizing moment of "grass is always greener" than the one that involves a gal's tresses. If your hair is stick straight, you pray for ringlets; if you've got a massively thick mop, you'd kill for a thinner coiff. And the list goes on. And on. And on.

    Well, whether you're rocking a Carey Mulligan pixie or a Brigitte Bardot bouffant, we firmly believe that you should flaunt what you've got. That's exactly why we went out on a mission to find versatile strands from across the Southland in a true celebration of tendrils. Click through to see your beautiful L.A. brethren's braids, mohawks, and dreads. Plus, if you feel any hair envy creeping up, don't worry; all of these real-life beauties gave us tips, too. The most important lesson, of course: Even if you're far from Pantene-commercial status, let your hair down and shake what your mama gave ya!
