Lefty Women Are Asking Hair Stylists For The Bachmann Look – But on the down low

Ann Althouse has the story -

“A lot of clients have asked for Sarah Palin hair in the past four years, and now, it’s Bachmann,” says Andi Scarbrough of Byu-ty Hair Therapy in L.A. “Politicians are the new celebrities, because they’re real. They didn’t just spring up out of the red carpet.”

However, she admits, “I have women who come in with photos with the face cut out sometimes.”

“She has great coppery color that warms her up a little bit,” said Angelo David at his E. 43rdSt. salon, who confirmed a spike in copycat requests for the candidate’s look. “Not everybody wants to look like Kim Kardashian.”

Bachmann’s style “is safe, but not soccer mom. It’s sexy,” said Alma Qeraxhiu at her AlmaG Salon and Spa on E. 21st. St.

“I have found it a little bit amazing how many women have been coming in asking for her hair style, even though they don’t agree with her politics.”

Having the best hair is an important step. If  you’re betting on who will win in politics, you’ll come out ahead, I think, if you always pick the candidate with the best hair. Male or female. But with female candidates, the hair can be a distraction if it’s not resolved into a predictably sensible yet pretty style.

(Remember when Carly Fiorina said Barbara Boxer’s hair was “so yesterday”?)

    No amount of designer hair-styling can make a leftist woman pretty. It’s the whole package, not just the hair.

    I cried because I had no shoes until I met a woman who had no class.

    Maybe the hair salon can throw in the Newsweak-doctored eyes for free.

    Nice, cutting the face out :P The same leftards who shove the First Clown and her mean eyebrows down our faces can’t be bothered to look at the face of a truly attractive woman whose hairstyle they want to copy

    And just how many lefty women out there are actually trying to look like the Mooch? Hmmm? None? That’s odd, for someone so allegedly fashion-forward…

    For 12 years I was married to an easy, inverted V bob. I changed my style 18 months ago because I couldn’t stand that P lousy had the same style that I had.
