Skip to comments.The Bachmann – A Hairdo in the Making?
Posted on 08/30/2011 12:22:33 PM PDT by Baladas
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has made headlines in the media for lots of reasons her victory in the Iowa straw poll, her joke that Hurricane Irene was Gods warning to Washington about federal spending, to name a few but now its her hairstyle thats causing a buzz.
The Cristophe salon in downtown Washington, D.C. made famous for cutting the Clintons hair when they were in the White House says some of its customers are requesting the Bachmann do.
People come in with pictures of haircuts they want. Sometimes ripped out of magazines but now, with the new generation, on iPhones and iPads. And yes, we see her popping up quite a bit, Philippe Depeyrot, the East Coast artistic director for the Cristophe Salons, told ABC News.
Her cut is long, but not too long. A fair amount of layers, but not overwhelming, Depeyrot noted. Its not hard to reproduce after you leave the shop and are styling it at home. It is something you can dress up or dress down, for both worlds, the professional world and the weekend.
Its not just in the nations capital that women want the Bachmann look. Stylists in New York and Los Angeles told the New York Daily News that more and more people are asking them for it, too. Angelo David, who has a salon on East 43rd Street in Manhattan, told the paper that hes seen a spike in customers requesting the Bachmann look, a cut and style that he estimated to cost around $150 to $300.

Congrats to ABC for finally addressing the important issues facing this country - Bachman’s hair style.
And, there is also the Palin “do”.
What to do, what to do........
I’d settle for having hair.
I actually don’t like bachmanns hair, and I like Palins, although I prefer it up
I don’t recall any requests for a “Hillary” hairdo.
Perhaps a clothing designer could name a line of pantsuits after her, though.
Palin has thicker hair IMO, but her style would require more trims. Bachmann’s is less high maintenance. Wait . . .
You do realize I don’t have any idea of what I’m talking about, don’t you?
I like Michelle’s do. The layers and the length work well.
$150 to $300?! I think I’ll let my hair hang just the way it wants to.
I dont recall any requests for a Hillary hairdo.
Hmmmmmm cant imagine why not????
Checkin’ out the do ... and, um, no thanks. Been there, done that. I think it’s actually kind of “blah.”
Quaker State and Penzoil were lobbying for her endorsements, though
Sarah has the best hair in politics - in fact her whole self is the most gorgeous.
Think MB is really nice looking also - but I vote for Sarah.
Both are beautiful ladies, but their hair is stringy around the bottom. Not flattering.

Too late, Omar the Tentmaker has naming rights.
Just a matter of time before the MSM did a hair story.
Much a-’do’ about nothing.
Okay, I may have waaaay too much time on my hands; but, I’ve begun to think that when Huma was spending more time with Hillary, Hillary actually used to put on some make-up, WASH her hair, and have it styled. Now, that Huma is married to a creep, and living in NYC, Hillary looks just awful, all of the time. What she looked like at her daughter’s wedding was shocking to me. According to reports, millions was spent on that wedding, yet Hillary seemed unable to fit in a hair appointment for the morning of the wedding. Unbelievable.
At one time, my brother owned a cosmetic company and Ted Kennedy hired the company to travel with him and do his hair & make-up for one of his Senate campaigns. For the publicity my bro gave Kennedy a substantial discount, but the final bill still came to thousands of dollars. Kennedy never paid. He stiffed a struggling vendor and never even responded or took my brother’s calls. The company went under and my brother lost everything.
I do not like the way Bachman wears her hair. It is too long for a woman her age.
Who in their right mind would want to copy a politican??!! The mindless pop culture has become the political. Sad for shallow Americans. This is the mentality that chanted “O baaaa ma” “Mmm mmm mmm...”
same with people who name their babies after soap stars or hollywood stars or politicians or presidents etc... I think more of my child than to name him/her after a stranger. It’s more appropriate for the mom and dad to sit down and share the why’s and wherefores of what to name their baby. It’s IMPORTANT and I would sure like to know I was named something nice by my parents than to think they slapped the name of someone in the news on me. Geez...
I am with you!
Aren’t these styles simply variations of the “Rachel” haircut? Sure looks like it to me — Palin’s with bangs, and Bachmann’s without. Have to admit I’ve never loved a haircut more than the “Rachel” inspired cut I got at Mario Tricoci’s salon in Chicago back in ‘94! (and it was FREE! The hospital I gave birth in gave out a coupon for it in our “New Mommy” baskets!)
One interesting part of this observation regarding women styling their hair after Palin and Bachmann is that 1) people are paying enough attention to them to notice their hair, and 2) you really do have to identify with someone in one way or another to want their haircut. :)
