Important Callista Gingrich Hairdo Status Update: Callista Goes Too Far To Heed Pink Pony's Advice

Uh oh, whoops! I only have myself to blame for this, because just the other day I admonished My Queen that OMG, she had to, had to, had to get her roots done.

So perhaps in a panic because she knew she was going to have to bow her head in public today, she got the hairdo recharged and... well, see for yourself:


Instead of just touching up the roots, some slipshod (local?) hairdresser went wayyyy overboard and redyed the Platinum Orb in its entirety, and it is FRIED. Chemical burns are clearly evident. Judging from wire photos, the coiffure vandalism happened either yesterday afternoon/evening or (more likely) this morning.

If she doesn't take better care of the Golden Helmet, she's going to have to get a real, actual helmet.

Also! She wore the same suit (but with a different top and different outlandishly expensive necklace) two days in a row. Callista!

That's it... forget the polls; if Callista is sporting chemical burns and hasn't changed her clothes in two days, the campaign's over, sigh.

Nevar Forget!

Deep conditioner alert!

Just to be sure I understand, the evidence of the chemical burns are the bent and broken hair strands?

That processing job must have hurt.

nixiebunny said...

Oh, and that's some nice, sincere horizontal prayer they're engaged in.

Plus - too much dye, too much blow dryer, too much straightening iron. Tone it down girl and get some better product.

*shudders*

I'm so ignorant of the actual work of hairdressing I have to ask a probably too obvious question.

How can months and months of burning dye and lacquer-like covering be done in a natural and healthy way? Doesn't it have to inflict damage in the long run or even in the not so long run?

Poor Callista. You rag on her when she doesn't get her hair done, and then you rag on her when she *does* get her hair done. Will she ever be worthy of the glittery hooves?

Florida hairdressers. Hmmph.

Sheldon Adelson only has so much money to pour in... Romney's pockets are way deeper. The Gingrich campaign doesn't completely realize the power of the golden helmet, and I believe diverting funds away from it's maintenance is the reason the Gingrich campaign is in trouble. It's a judgment call, I understand, but seriously, without the serious kinky fabulousness that Callista embodies, all they've got is Newt's snark. And that, like the Golden Orb itself, is wearing thin.

It's heartbreaking, isn't it, Diane?

I am guessing that she panicked, because Ru Paul’s “Drag Race” is on Monday, and she was worried about the competition...

I am glad you are watching “Calli Lou”’s wardrobe, but let’s get to the chase.. her shoes? She better have better taste in shoes than in hairdressers and jewelry, (I doubt it)

PSP, your powers of observation astound me.

Can we talk about Newt's poorly fitting coat?

Newtie needs a tailor and an on call cardiac surgeon, given his weight and age, he should be keeling over any time soon from a heart attack, he is getting morbidly obese.. Candidates are renown to gain weight on the Campaign trail, and he is no exception. This means his tailored suits before the campaign started are not fitting properly as he packs on the pounds.. Nice sexy double chin, it goes with the frumpy suit.

Sacrifice for your man!

Very Christ-like... or it would be if Jesus had realized the importance of roots.

The poor dear's on the road. Does she not have a retinue? Did she risk the rough-and-tumble ministrations of some native denizen of my old home state? She has to be careful! The hairdressers of Palatka or Waldo or Howey-in-the-Hills or Mt Dora are more about the quantity than the quality.

And dry Florida winters are VERY tough on the hair, as I can speak from experience. She'll have different problems to deal with the further south she goes, but otherwise, she has to be careful she doesn't start sparking off like a Van der Graff generator!

Nothing about the Ugly Bus behind them? Newt may be a little jowly, but his real-life appearance is way better than that oddly infantile, smoothed-out horror of a portrait on his campaign bus.

Meanwhile, Newt's corpulent face is so bloated he looks like an apple doll.
They should put out a sex tape and charge people for not having to watch it.

Dave Latchaw said...

There's no way you could have known that this would happen. You have to stop blaming yourself.

Who knew the folks at Bond-O had gotten into manufacturing foundation make-up?
Someone should have told her that "using a trowel to apply foundation" is just a figure of speech and not a styling tip.
