Hair envy plays a big part in our primetime TV viewing experience, especially as we rush home to our flatscreens donning what’s either the last bounce of a once work-worthy blowout or scraggly just-off-the-treadmill hair. So when our favorite leading ladies hit the screen again this fall primped with hair that will hold its mark as they nab evildoers, steal hearts and deliver punchlines, you can bet we’ll be taking beauty notes. While we eagerly await this season’s first big twist — hair twist, that is — learn how to style your locks like the stars of your must-see shows.
