Best Hair RX: The Hair Doctor
Hairstylist Shawn L. Brown, better known as The Hair Doctor, recently moved, but don't worry: She splits her time
though not your ends-between Sacramento and Southern California. In January, Brown starts a 10-city tour throughout the United States doing free hair makeovers-broadcast on local television morning shows-primarily on people who, she says, "don't have the opportunity to take care of themselves." "We choose the type of people that take care of others or have experienced some challenges and could use a boost," she says. Past makeover winners have included homeless women and teachers, but Brown once surprised her Facebook fans with makeovers. (916) 929-9007; hairdoc911.com
Best Model Mechanic: Katie O'Brien
She's a far cry from the stereotypical burly, beefy, gruff mechanic, but this 5-foot-11 brunette graduated from the Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Phoenix in 2006. Her dream job is to work with Yamaha Motor Corporation as a race team mechanic
or any position, for that matter. O'Brien's a bona fide motorcycle aficionada; she loves the sound of the engine, even the smell of the exhaust. But there's more to her life than bikes: O'Brien's also a model, donning the latest fashions in print ads and on the runway.
