Instead of bringing a picture of Blake Lively—or, if you were an eighth grader in 2006, Kristin Cavallari—to your next hair appointment, consider current presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Not necessarily for her medium-length bob (a perfectly fine style!) but for her display of total hair dominance at Bergdorf's last week.
On Friday, presumably filled with inspiration to change up her look, Clinton got a haircut at the John Barrett salon inside Bergdorf Goodman. But instead of entering like a normal, Page Six reports that Clinton and her entourage entered the fanciest department store of them all through a side entrance for a private hair cut with John Barrett (the person) during which staff closed off an entire side of the store. A source explains:
"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."
Bow to Hillary Clinton, hair queen.
