Hillary’s Hair: We Can’t Help Ourselves

Democrats, Politics, Women in Politics

Hillary Clinton and her controversial headbands are back!  While President Obama’s State of the Union address has been much talked about and we loved seeing now-retired Congresswoman Gabby Giffords make her appearance on the House floor as he gave that speech, the third-most discussed thing about this week’s SOTU event was –  Hillary’s headband!!

Forget her accomplishments as a U.S. Senator!  Nevermind all that talk about helping women and children around the world!  Hillary is bringing back the headband!  Women in their 60s with long hair!  WOO-HOO!

OK, no headband here, but her hair rocks. Image via www.state.gov

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving the blonder, longer hair the Secretary of State is sporting these days. As a woman closer in age to Hillary than Chelsea, I may just try that myself!

Of course, Clinton had to know that, having been mocked once in her life for being an adult woman who wore a headband, that there’d be plenty of discussion of it this time, too. The funny thing, though, is she’s totally in the style moment — fashionistas LOVED the look on Michelle Williams at the Golden Globes!

But aside from the headband, why are we so fascinated with  Hillary’s hair?   She’s got a ponytail!  Now it’s in a bun! Hey, did she get a blow-out? I hate to break it to the Hillary fashion haters, but sometimes a girl’s just got to mix it up a little bit.  Maybe she can sport this little leopard number for her next news conference?

Maybe her critics are afraid if the focus on what she actually does rather than how she styles her hair, they’d have to admit she’s a woman to be taken seriously.

    can’t stand her, but I love, love, love her hair – wish mine looked as great.

    Ugh! It is utterly ridiculous that people feel the need to comment on Hillary Clinton’s hair style. As if that IN ANY WAY affects the work that she does. Yet another example of how the authority of women is constantly undermined in our society.

    PLEASE! Her hair looks ridiculous. I have hair that is long, but it has style. I am 54 and I think wearing it up with a beach comb looks so idiotic at an event. She seriously looks like she is having a meltdown. Whats with the creepy personal lives of these people…like Dole talking about “ED” and Gore growing a scraggely mountain beard and of course her very own husband…its all so WEIRD!!!!!It makes me wonder if the world is even more on the brink than we are being told and she knows it and she is letting it all hang out because it seems inconsequential. I get the idea that she doesn’t have time when she is dealing with some of the nutty world leaders and that middle eastern men want a woman not to look masculine (hence losing the short hair) maybe she gets some respect for it, but please at least take a round brush, layer it and make it look presentable!
