No. 11: Chicago
Chicago has a young population with an average age of 22, plus an unusually high number of beauty salons per capita. So despite its wind and low temperatures (which can dry out hair), the odds are strongly in your favor here to have great hair.

No. 10: Boston
Boston also has a large number of salons per capita, plus it has soft water, which means your hair isn't stripped of shine, color and moisture with every shampoo -- all good news for your hair.

No. 9: Denver
OK, so while the mile-high city may have hard water, the lack of wind and low humidity (just 67% -- lower than desert cities Reno and Flagstaff) -- not to mention the large number of hair salons -- help give residents an advantage in having healthy, stylish hair.

No. 8: Los Angeles
Angelinos have the advantage of weather that hardly changes through the year, meaning their hair conditions stay constant and are easier to manage. The lack of rain means a very low likelihood of frizz, and low winds also keep hair easy to manage.

No. 7: Miami
Miami is hot and humid, that's for sure, but it's also one of the least-polluted cities in the country (and we all know what pollution does to hair -- it's been linked to balding, gray hair and dullness). It also has very little wind and many salons to help keep your hair in control and stylish.

Are you having a good hair day? You probably are if you're living in one of these cities. (And, ahem, you're probably not if you live in one of these 13 worst-hair cities.) We looked at humidity levels, pollution, rainfall, average wind speeds, water hardness, demographics and the number of beauty salons per capita to find which cities have the best conditions for healthy, stylish hair. So did your town make the list? Let's find out.
