Best Hair on a TV Personality -- Female
"Elegance" isn't a description usually associated with a TV anchor's coiffure. "Bet you could bounce a quarter off it" is far more common. But every time she appears, 7News anchor/reporter Theresa Marchetta classes up the set. Although her tresses appear to have been tastefully tinted (only her hairdresser knows for sure - but she has twins, and has earned any gray), they flow naturally, with none of the plasticized sheen favored by so many of her professional peers. Talk about delivering the news with style.
Best Hair on a TV Personality -- Male
Kyle Clark's cut is multi-dimensional. When he's on assignment at the scene of a fire or some weather emergency, the hard-charging correspondent's mop looks mildly mussy yet still under control. Think of it as Action Hair that perfectly complements those Jake Gyllenhaal eyes. In the studio, however, his 'do - enhanced with a little product - exhibits unexpected complexity, with its waves and ripples suggesting a particularly fashionable topographic map. Destination: cool.
