See Hillary Clinton's New DGAF Haircut

Here's why the style had a major impact on International Women's Day.

Published March 10, 2017

Cropped cuts seem to be taking over Hollywood. But thanks to a new hairdo Hillary Clinton sported this week, it seems like there’s a place for pixies in politics, too. Hillary’s new look? Shorter and blonder with bangs!

The haircut made its debut on her Snapchat on Thursday (Mar. 8) and then again later during a speech for International Women’s Day. She didn’t comment on her switch-up because, well, she was busy spreading a message of women's empowerment to the masses. However, you better believe her haircut did not go unnoticed and the reactions immediately started rolling in.

While, it may seem a bit in poor taste to be ogling over a politician’s hairstyle rather than her policies, it was Hillary herself who jokingly declared, "If I want to knock a story off the front page, I just change my hairstyle." The witty remark rang true when she delivered encouraging words to the women of America that gained lots of attention thanks to her trendier style. If a new haircut, as frivolous as it might sound, is the reason you watch her speech and hear her inspiring words, then so be it.

“These are uncertain, even trying times. But as we all stop to look fear in the face, the result has not only been action, but passion,” she said during her speech.

Positive vibes, girl power and new hair to match her confidence. We’re here for it.
