Obviously no one who values their appearance as much as Hillary Clinton is going to get anything less than the best haircut money can buy. After all, every time she’s been left to her own devices, doing her own hair, she’s gone with accessorizing for convenience over styling for television. In her long and arduous battle with her locks, we’ve seen her employ everything from a padded headband to a butterfly clip to a scrunchie, a full two decades after the last scrunchie had ever been seen in the wild.
If the woman wants to get a $600 haircut (and $600 color!), maybe we’re all just better for it. Except maybe for the people who do her “middle class” messaging.
Hillary Clinton put part of Bergdorf Goodman on lockdown on Friday to get a $600 haircut at the swanky John Barrett Salon.
Clinton, with a huge entourage in tow, was spotted being ushered through a side entrance of the Fifth Avenue store on Friday.
A source said, “Staff closed off one side of Bergdorf’s so Hillary could come in privately to get her hair done. An elevator bank was shut down so she could ride up alone, and then she was styled in a private area of the salon. Other customers didn’t get a glimpse. Hillary was later seen with a new feathered hairdo.”
Clinton regularly sees salon owner John Barrett, who charges regular mortals $600 for a cut and blow-dry. Hair color can cost an extra $600.”
Look. It’s hard out there for a lady. I have red hair, for example, that gets really weird looking if it doesn’t get one of those “tinted wash” things every few weeks to keep it looking more Ann-Margret and less Marilyn Manson. It’s the cost of doing business in public. Of course, when I get my hair done, it comes to less than $100 every eight weeks. I’ve never spent $600 on anything at a given time, except maybe for a mortgage payment.
But like I said, would you like to see Hillary without that $600 haircut? See what I mean? It’s an investment all of us can appreciate.
