The New Power Haircut?

Posted in politics by echan on December 3, 2010

This photo of Madame Secretary has been circulating and caused some bafflement:

One of my friends explained that Clinton had simply forgotten to take out the clip.

But today, in the WSJ Law Blog, I came across this photo of Ginny Thomas:

Two powerful, middle-aged women isn’t enough to establish a trend, but there is a remarkable similarity to how Secretary of State Clinton and Ms. Thomas are wearing their hair. Clearly, the plastic hairclip transcends partisanship.

    I didn’t explain so much as share nymag’s guess. šŸ™‚

    I would never have noticed the Ginny Thomas pic for the clip. Partially because it’s smaller, but partially b/c it’s less incongruous—-it seems like a very grizzly mom look, at some level, and she is not iconic (in my circles) for carefully coiffed hair.
