SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2009) - Are you having a good hair day today? If you live in these cities, you probably are. TotalBeauty.com, the leading web site offering beauty advice and unbiased beauty product reviews covering 40,000+ products, has put together a list of the cities with the best hair.

The BEST Hair Cities in America are:

No. 1: Santa Barbara

TotalBeauty.com experts built the list based on an analysis of each city's annual humidity levels, pollution, rainfall, wind speeds, water hardness, demographics and the number of beauty salons per capita in order to find which cities have the best conditions for gorgeous, stylish hair.

"Americans would have much better hair as a population if we all moved here," says Editor in Chief Beth Mayall-Traglia, of the winning cities. "While they may not be 'mullet-free zones,' they have the ideal climates for avoiding frizz, damage and color fading; plus they offer high access to great hairstyling talent."
