Whether you're blessed with long, short, curly, or straight hair, it's important that you take good care of your crowning glory. After all, it's one of the first things people notice when they meet you for the first time. But in a country with heat, humidity, and pollution that can make even the strongest strands fall limp and the bounciest curls unruly, getting gorgeous hair is easier said than done.

With the first-ever Female Network Hair Awards, your road to prettier hair becomes a little easier. For months, the FN editorial team surveyed a panel of beauty experts and the members of the GIRLTalk community and came up with a shortlist under each category. We then tested the finalist products, tools, and services, resulting in the definitive guide to all things hair this 2015.
