Scrunchie fan Hillary Clinton replaces outdated accessory with bejewelled hair tie
UK Daily Mail ^ | 6:20 EST, 12 October 2012

Posted on 10/13/2012 12:30:21 PM PDT by drewh

For the past year, Hillary Clinton has been at the center of politics, accused of committing the ultimate fashion faux pas for 'any self-respecting New York City woman'.

Previously defying her staff's request to 'ban the scrunchies,' it seems the Secretary of State may have finally traded in her signature hair accessory.

And according to one of Mrs Clinton's top aides, it has been a general feeling that her scrunchies should be replaced by something more stylish. Decorative hair ties appear to be her creative answer.

While it is true that bejewelled hair ties are more formal than her usual cotton scrunchies, some believe that any decorative ponytail-holder firmly belongs in the 'items you're too old to wear' category.

Popularised during the mid-Eighties, when Bananarama-loving schoolgirls took the printed soft elastic hairband to their hearts and heads, the scrunchie quickly became the go-to hair accessory of that time.

Available in a multitude of colors and fabrics, they were simultaneously the most fashionable and hair-friendly accessories on the market.

But after a good run, the scrunchie, much like the era's fashions, ultimately became passé as an accessory indicative of an era when side-ponytails and fingerless gloves were considered the height of style.

n a revealing feature by Elle magazine about the Secretary of State's career trajectory, one aide explained the reason behind Mrs Clinton's original cotton Eighties look: convenience.

'Some of us are looking to ban the scrunchies,' the aide confessed.

'As a chick, it's a big pain in the butt. The weather is different, and you’re in and out of the plane,' she said. '[The staff] gets off that plane looking like garbage most days, but she has to look camera ready.

'She said the reason she grew her hair long was that it's easier. She has options

He WAS a lucky man. Hillary was quite the looker even during election 2008. Since joining the Obama team she looks nasty.

From a female point of view, the new bejeweled ponytail holders are a vast improvement. I thought she looked very nice with the new accessories. The Scrunchies had to go. Tacky.

what a hideous troll. this administration is a national joke. It’s truly pathetic the support they receive. At least Bill was a small semblance of a statesman, Hillary has done nothing but ride coattails for her position. Every single member of Obama’s administration is nothing but an empty suit. I pray they are gone this november.

She has much more important issues to think about, including her role in what happened in Libya.

I prefer not to see her at all.

She never was a beauty, and she isn’t aging well.

If Cellulite was a commodity she would be worth a fortune.

Yikes!
That coat looks like it has a small white stickman painted on it, with Hil’s huge head on top. I had to look twice.

In May, photos taken of the former First Lady during visits to Bangladesh and India, showed the Secretary of State looking tired and withdrawn – far from the well-coiffed image she has maintained over the past two decades in politics. The images – in which she was make-up free, casually dressed and wearing glasses – came as she claimed she had no desire to make another bid for the White House because she wanted a rest.

Fashion advice for Hillary:

Look. We know you are a lesbian and probably don’t want to be bothered with hair prettying. And for some reason you want longish hair. Well, fine. Here are your choices:

1. Get it cut into a shoulder length or slightly shorter pageboy with bangs; flip the ends under or over each day or even leave them straight on occasion.

2. If it must be longer, cut layered bangs into it going quite short on the part side; it will be more forgiving to your face. Never wear it down except for times when you will not be photographed. Have it put up in braids and buns and updos every day. No pony tails.

3. If you absolutely have to have bang free long hair at your age, here is what rich women have done for decades. Clamp it back into a low tail at the back of your neck, down, not in the air like a girl jumping rope, as you are now doing, and use a sedate expensive large barrette style clasp. The key is starkly pulled back, clamped flat on your neck. Accessorize with large conservative earrings. This will not flatter you but it will look more “normal.”

I agree. Long stringy straggly hair is so unattractive for a woman her age. Long strands of hair around an older face just adds to its gravity.

Unfortunately (for all of us), she is beginning to resemble Madelaine Not-Too-Bright and may be headed for the Helen Thomas look.

I’m just sayin’.

She desperately needs to return to short hair:

Yes, she does. That hairstyle is dragging her face down. Yes, she's getting older, gravity does a number on the cheeks and jowls, and that's fine, but she could do with a hairstyle that doesn't EMPHASIZE it!

“I will not criticize...I am 3 years her junior, and have the same problems.”

I am her age and I would love to have a Lifestyle Lift. It is a one hour procedure done in the Dr’s office and they pull up all that lose skin around her neck, and face. After 60 my face aged rapidly and there isn’t squat I can do about it. People can be very unkind.

Be careful and get some good info. I too am a lady of a certain age, and I had seen the TV ads for Lifestyle Lift. Did an Internet search, and found a lot of scary stuff about it.
