Should Hillary Clinton's Staff 'Ban' Her From Wearing Scrunchies?

Fashion bloggers are no longer the only ones calling out Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her unflattering scrunchie habit. Now some of Clinton’s staff members want to “ban” her from wearing the accessory altogether. But should we even be concerned with how Hillary styles her hair?

The staffer’s scrunchie comment was revealed in Rachael Combe’s profile on Clinton in the May issue of Elle magazine. Despite the fact that the article only spent a couple paragraphs discussing Hillary’s fashion sensibilities, those few style tidbits have received significant media attention.

Combe wrote: “When [Clinton’s] on the road, she often has [her hair] pulled back in a simple chignon or ponytail, a look that causes Hillary Hair Watchers much chagrin but merely means she’s pressed for time, as a State Department official told me: ‘As a chick, it’s a big pain in the butt. The weather is different, and you’re in and out of the plane. [The staff] gets off that plane looking like garbage most days, but she has to look camera ready. She said the reason she grew her hair long was that it’s easier. She has options.’ The official added, because, it seems, no American alive can resist critiquing Clinton’s hair: ‘But some of us are looking to ban the scrunchies.’”

We’re not so fond of the scrunchie look ourselves. But is it really important that the Secretary of State also be a fashion icon? We think not.

Yet, as Combe herself added, “Feminists and supporters will often wail for everyone to stop focusing on Clinton’s hair and clothes and listen to her ideas, but that’s sort of a backhanded compliment. (People, she’s too smart to care that she looks like crap.)”

What do you think SodaHeads? Should Hillary Clinton’s staff “ban” her from wearing scrunchies? (As if they actually have that kind of power.)

    scrunchies are too casual for hilary clinton to wear on those official occasions. would you take someone who wears a scrunchie seriously in a job interview? I think NOT!
    besides, they are not even pretty to look at. an invisible hair band that matches her hair colour would suffice if she's too lazy to hire a hair stylist.

    I am not a Hillary fan at all, but will everyone just leave this woman alone and let her do her job!!! Those pictures of her wearing those scrunchies, looks perfectly tasteful to me!!! Scrunchies came out in the 80's, Madonna used some kind of ripped up pantyhose contraption that she made herself before she was famous and they looked something like a modern scrunchie. Then she becomes famous and all of the suddenly these things were everywhere in all kinds of fabrics and textures, every color you could imagine!!! I loved them and had a drawer full of them!!! I wore them extensively during the 80's. Of course that was when big hair with spiral curls was all the rage!!! After the 90's I no longer permed my hair and went with the shorter straighter Rachel style, thus retiring my scrunchies. However, I still think they are a functional choice when wearing a ponytail or other updo. I still think highly of the scrunchie and Carrie Bradshaw/Sarah Jessica Parker be damned!!!

    She looks fine! The black scrunchie looks very elegant on her. Screw the fashion police, they had better hope to look half as good as her at her age and with all her stress and responsibilities.

    The world is NOT a better place because of people like you sir, and like those that call themselves muslim and kill in the name of ALLAH (They are not following His path,I am sure HE is ashamed of these people, too).The only thing you do is spreading hate and violence.Shame on you! I am a muslim girl, my mother is, my grandma is, and no one threw stones toward us, we are not covered but we have something that our religion taught us : to respect the other, and to respect the others religion, something that you don't know about, do you?!!
