HIllary Clinton has bangs. And while it’s no big deal in the real world, in a realm where the world of politics collides with the world of fashion, it’s a really big thing. The former Secretary of State and likely 2016 presidential candidate desperately needed a makeover. Some are wondering if this new look is designed to forge a new image for the woman who could be the first female president.

Hillary’s new ‘do is actually a soft bob. Her bangs aren’t thick and cut straight across–as some imagine bangs can only be–but rather soft and sort of side swept. It’s a very flattering style for the woman known for wearing boring pantsuits and having let her hair grow a bit too long and a bit too gray. She underwent a bit of a color transformation, too, forgoing gray for a soft honey color.

HIllary Clinton hasn’t yet made an announcement about whether she will or will not run for president in 2016. Democratic hopefuls are keeping their fingers crossed that she will in fact throw her hat into the proverbial ring. Many will count on this new hairstyle–replete with classy bangs–as an affirmative to the run. Hopefully they won’t be too disappointed if it turns out to be a simple visit to a hair salon instead.

What’s your take on the former Secretary of State and her bangs?
