Should You Care About A Senator’s Hairstyle?

Perhaps not.

But Mother Jones has a terrific “fluff piece” by Dave Gilson entitled The Greatest Senatorial Hair Cuts of All Time with a punned subtitle ‘do process.


Most of the hairstyles are also punningly titled, adding to the fun of the 8 featured senators.  Although some, such as John Calhoun (pictured above) need no title, and others rise and fall by their caption.

A companion piece, by Asawin Suebsaeng on Senate Hair Care Services, “the official barbershop and salon of the world’s greatest deliberative body,” is also a terrific read that puts laws, codes, and policies about hair into a different perspective.
