5 Gorgeous 'Dos For Cycling Chicks

[Update: This story was originally published on June 21.]
There’s nothing hotter than a smart, sassy local lady two-wheeling around town. And, of course, the wisest of those ladies knows that it's essential to wear a bicycle helmet…very much to the dismay of our tresses.
Luckily, it looks like you don't have to sacrifice style for safety anymore, thanks to five hot DIY hairdos that we dreamed up just for helmet wearers. Local beauty maven Katie Nash tried and tested each of them on real-girl model Emily Mullé (from Ditto.com), and we can promise this: They're the antithesis of flat and oh-so-unsexy helmet hair. From interview ready to first-date sexy, these 'dos have got all of your biking bases covered.
