Hairdo Matters: Hairdos Matter!

(Getty Images)

If you want to read some really good hairdo journalism, Krissah Thompson and Lonnae O'Neal Parker have an excellent article over at the Washington Post about how Bill de Blasio's family of compare/contrast hairdos went a long way in solidifying his image as one to which a wide range of New Yorkers could easily relate.

I've often written here about how hairdos, far from "not mattering," can actually be crucial to a politician's success (or failure; see: John Edwards). In this case, the hairdos were practically surrogates for de Blasio's campaign, and successful ones at that.

So anyway, I don't have much else to say here that I haven't said before, so... golf clap. Well done, Parker and Thompson.

I'm telling you: Hillary better get her mercurial coiffure sorted out by 2016.
