Some might dispense with helmets or dispense with biking in exchange for awesome hair. I’ve decided to embrace helmet head and work with it. I’ve found I can easily adapt any hair mess into some very popular hair styles.

If there’s no wind at all I have the “Sound of Music:”
If I want a little more volume than this I add some hair product and get “The Walk of Shame:”
On a humid summer day I wrangle my sweaty hair into the “Little Orphan Annie:”
But if I don’t want curls I dry my hair under the hand-dryer at work and turn it into “The Hurricane:”
If I want to soften that up a little I put a little molding paste in to get “The Warhol:”
Or I just combine all the hairstyles in one and get “The Courtney Love:”
See, there’s no reason to sacrifice safety for your hairstyle.
