A BIG honor for one of our own--Newswatch 16's Sharla McBride was named a 2017 Hairry Award recipient.
A website dedicated to hair styling and hair products is behind the Hairry Awards. The honor is bestowed on men and women with "fabulous" hair.
This year, there was a category dedicated to newswomen with exceptional dos.
Expert stylists chose a winner and runner-up from each state, and out of all the newswomen in Pennsylvania, Sharla was named the runner-up.
Cecily Tynan, a meteorologist for our sister station in Philadelphia, took home the state's top honor.
Judges followed strict criteria when choosing this year's recipients. They make sure your hair is a natural color and has no signs of thinning. They also judge your hairstyle based on how trendy it is and how well it complements your overall look.
