Best Hair on a Local TV Personality — Male
Chris Parente, Fox31

Parente, the engine that fuels CW2's Daybreak, last won our Best Hair prize in 2011 — and five years down the line, his coiffure is, if anything, even more astonishing. Less resilient follicles treated to what we can only imagine is a regular regimen on heavy-duty industrial styling products might have turned weird, kinky and unmanageable or, worse yet, fallen out entirely. But Parente's proudly idiosyncratic 'do continues to stand tall season after season. It's an inspiration (and a challenge) to dudes everywhere.
