Hillary Clinton speaks out on her bad hair look - busy schedule means no hairdresser for Secretary of State

During her sit-down with Barbara Walters for the journalist’s annual ‘Most Fascinating People,’ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton chatted about one of her most famous attributes - her hair.

Clinton may have a stellar political background, but Walters chose to talk to Clinton about her famous hairdo and its constant evolving.

“I do not travel with any hairdresser, or anybody, to help me do that, and I’m not very competent myself,” Clinton said to Walters.

“I’ve been admitting that for years, which should be obvious to everyone,” she joked in the interview.

“It’s fascinating to me how people are so curious about it,” she said. “Because after awhile, it just got to be really burdensome to try to find a hairdresser in some city, somewhere, oftentimes not being able to speak English, that at least I could communicate with.”

“So I said: Enough — we’re just going to try to go with as simple as possible,” she added.

Clinton’s ‘do first gained attention when husband Bill became President during the 90s. Back then, Hillary was often found sporting a headband. Now though, she’s opted for a ‘simpler’ slicked back ponytail.

The secretary of state has announced that she will be resigning from her post in the new year, leaving the door wide open for an array of opportunities - most notably another run for presidency in 2016.
