Callista and the Washington power bob

CH1

With manicured flair, Callista Gingrich takes everything we've known about White House hair and shellacs it to new levels. 

CH2

First Lady Michelle Obama takes a slightly more relaxed approach to the bob-and-swoop, but it's still her signature hairstyle. 

CH3

In the battle of perfect political hair, Michele Bachmann will always be a serious contender. 

CH5

Hillary Clinton, the woman of a thousand hairstyles, even braves the blonde. She also gets double powerhair points as both Secretary of State AND former First Lady. 

CH4

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice brought her version of the power bob the table in 2008. 

CH6

Some things change with time, some things don't. Jackie Kennedy never lacked for style, here in 1963.

We see you, Callista Gingrich, with your perfect white-blonde helmet on that pretty head of yours.

There’s been much ado about your flawless coif lately. In fact, it has been a topic almost as hot as your husband’s moon base dream or marriage history. We’re not saying that’s right, but you have to admit: Your hair is pretty… interesting.

The look has been described as “frozen,” “prissy” and “distractingly impeccable,” which all sound like compliments if you ask us. When we’re not trying to figure out how you get it to do that little swoopy thing to stay so consistently perfect over your eye, we’re squinting and thinking, “Hey, I’ve seen that haircut before.”

Jackie Kennedy may have started the trend, but Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, other first ladies and many political powerhouses have also successfully rocked a permutation (albeit a more relaxed one) of your shiny power bob.

So hats off to you. Actually, with hair like that you probably don’t wear hats, so, kudos!

They say you should dress for the job you want, and you’ve taken the paradigm of White House lady-hair to a new level.
