You’re used to clients coming through the door and requesting the latest celebrity styles. Whether it’s J.Lo’s famous caramel highlights or Victoria Beckham’s “Posh Bob,” your customers know exactly what they want. And you know how to deliver it. With celebrity photos plastered across the pages of multiple magazines each week and daily updates online of stars out and about, there’s not shortage of inspiration.

But now there’s a new kind of celebrity in town, and it’s not Hollywood: It’s Washington, D.C.  For the next few months, all eyes will be on the campaign for the new president. And people are already paying attention to style. After Michelle Obama served as a guest host on The View, many viewers called in to find out where her dress was purchased. It won’t be long until you see clients requesting Michelle’s elegant coif or Cindy McCain’s bold blonde. Or maybe they’ll covet Sarah Palin’s flattering updo or even Hillary Clinton’s short and sleek cut. Start boning up on your political hair now so you’ll be prepared for clients' requests. In the meantime, cast your vote for your favorite political hairstyle here.


The elections are right around the corner and all eyes are on … hair! Whose political hairstyle is your favorite?
