Hillary Clinton Starts 2014 With a Bang. Well, Make That 'Bangs'

Hillary Clinton new bangsJanet Mayer/Splash News Online

Did anyone have Hillary Clinton on their betting sheet for “first major haircut of 2014?” We didn’t think so. While our money was on Pamela, Brad or Beyoncé, the former Secretary of State surprised us by being the first famous figure to debut a stylish, sassy cut, and we’re loving the new look.

Though Clinton is a political figure, known much more for what’s inside her head than on top of it, her hair has still been the subject of discussion for many years (one of the “perks” of being First Lady — just ask Michelle Obama). But she keeps a good sense of humor about the Hillary hair fascination, never hesitating to try something new.

And in the latest case, we think the risk paid off big time. Her shorter, softer style (debuted at the swearing-in of N.Y.C. mayor Bill de Blasio) frames her face well, while the bangs are chic and flattering, but more importantly, low-maintenance — perfect for a powerhouse who doesn’t have time to hit the salon before every public appearance.

Are you loving Clinton’s bold new bangs for the New Year? Vote in our poll below.

I can’t believe how snowed over people are about Bill and Hill. OMG wake up!!!! Do you not pay attention at all. I can’t believe the media and how they keep the lies going. And now they report on her damn hair? Oh please………This woman needs to retire. I’m sick of hearing about her.
