4. Cindy Preszler No matter the forecast -- be it rain, hail, sleet or snow -- KSDK (Channel 5) meteorologist Cindy Preszler's hairdo is Santa Barbara in the summertime: golden sunlight, cloudless skies, a hint of lavender on a gentle breeze. Ever modest, our 2005 winner credits her brilliant coif to hairdresser Bob Garner of the chic Stonewater Spa at Plaza Frontenac. "I've been going to Bob for a couple years," Preszler dishes. "He's great." We're sure he is. But just as no man controls the weather, Preszler's honeyed highlights must owe their beauty to a higher power. Hair that gorgeous is a gift from above.

3. Bonita Cornute In all of local TV land, there is but one coif that stands out as a real-woman success story: that of Bonita Cornute of KTVI-TV (Channel 2). We appreciate this general-assignment reporter's no-nonsense approach both to covering the news and to styling. Her super-short locks afford her a professional look not easily achieved by those who're sprayed, flat-ironed and flipped. And we're sure our 2009 winner laughs at the many, many minutes her counterparts at other stations spend in hair and makeup while she's out getting the story before them.

2. Mandy Murphey The KTVI (Channel 2) anchor's shoulder-length 'do is a fair and balanced blend of familiar sitcom-mom styles coagulating into something resembling Mrs. Brady with a quasi-modern awareness of the Rachel. Murphey's blonde mop neither grasps at the front edge of hair hipness nor stagnates itself by an archaic cut. Our 2010 winner's goldy locks are just right for recalling simpler times and bringing a much needed comfort to the nightly news.
