Hair Stalking! 20 Local Ladies Show Off Their Locks

Although the mood of good ol’ Mother Nature might be shifting every millisecond this summer and providing us city dwellers with endless outfit challenges, there's one way the Bay Area's coolest babes are countering this style conundrum — by sporting jaw-dropping, crush-worthy hair, no matter the chill factor!
Don't believe us? Well, we hit the streets and captured (who are we kidding, stalked) 20 local ladies coiffed to absolute perfection. From a perfectly imperfect bedhead style to an ombré-and-Hollywood-wave lovechild, these looks should inspire some serious ‘do envy. Trust, S.F. girls have got hair on lockdown.
