Hair Stalking: Mega-Inspiring Styles From Real Girls

We spend hours, if not days, obsessing over our hair. How such strong attachments form to our follicles is a great mystery, but one we're totally giving in to. If you've ever felt that choosing a style, taking care of your tresses, and actually doing your 'do is basically a new form of cardio, we get you. All that effort can create exhaustion, or sometimes (gasp) indifference. You can't slack on hooking up your locks, you love 'em too much. Allow us to re-rev your engines with hot, easy-to-do hairstyles we spotted on the streets of Chicago. Click through to check out what real girls are sporting on local streets. They're totally willing to give you a lesson—Lord knows we picked up a few, too.
