Here’s a little something extra for fun on the Fourth of July. Artist Christina Christoforou has drawn all the First Lady’s hairdos in a row.
In the beginning, we see a newborn empire in those Josephine curls. The mid-20th century is marcelled. And in recent decades, increasingly liberated first ladies sport more leonine locks. Interestingly, there are no bangs. Perhaps this has less to do with hair and more to do with campaign promises of marital harmony and world peace.
Bangs are inherently aggressive, I agree. Anybody who lived through the 80’s, especially anywhere near New Jersey, knows that to be an absolute truth.
