New year, new mayor, new hair! Hillary Clinton debuted a new haircut at the inauguration of New York City's new mayor Bill de Blasio on Wednesday, Jan. 1, complete with a fresh set of bangs.
The former Secretary of State, 66, cozied up beside husband Bill Clinton as the power couple watched the ceremony take place on the steps of City Hall. Wearing a long, black wool coat and leather gloves, the blonde political player debuted a shaggy, short bob with choppy, layered, side-swept bangs grazing her forehead.
Former President Clinton smiled beside his chic wife in a gray wool coat and checkered scarf; the two sat beside New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo and former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Not since Michelle Obama revealed her bangs last January — which the First Lady subsequently removed due to the style's "irritating" nature — have bangs created so much buzz!
Clinton's new look, however, was actually not her first attempt at rocking choppy, layered locks. In July, the stylish mother-of-one revealed lauded, lightly-styled, wavy, side bangs that designer Oscar de la Renta later said he had inspired. "I told her a while back she should cut her hair," the American designer told Gotham magazine back in August. "She said she couldn’t do it then because when she arrived in a foreign country and asked for a hairdresser, Homeland Security would have to check the person out."
