    The Washington Times on Wednesday ran the headline, “Self-declared socialist AOC splurges on high-dollar hairdo,” after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez paid $80 for a haircut, another $180 for coloring, and some extra for the tip.

    Ocasio-Cortez, “who regularly rails against the rich and complains about the cost of living inside the Beltway, spent nearly $300 on her hairdo at a pricey salon she frequents in downtown Washington,” The Washington Times wrote.

    Meanwhile, women in major cities across America collectively asked, “So?”

    According to data compiled in 2016 by Square, the mobile payments company co-founded by Twitter’s TWTR, +2.07% Jack Dorsey, $80 is just about in line with haircut prices in costly areas like Washington D.C.

    Haircuts for women cost more than men. The average haircut price for women in the nation is $45. The average price for a man is $34. And those prices are higher in more expensive cities. In D.C. the average cost for a woman is $78, which is close to what AOC paid. She added some coloring which increased the cost.

    And how much was Slick Willy’s haircut several years ago?

    Hillary pays $600 for her haircuts at Bergdorf Goodman – coloring there costs a LOT more – and half the floor was shut down so the peasants would not bother her.  Bill Clinton had two runways closed at LAX while he was getting a $200 trim.  I assume that is not a euphemism.  In 1993.

    Too bad hypocrisy does not show up as boils and pimples…

    This is even worse than that one time Bernie Sanders wore a coat.

    The most I’ve paid is around $50 including tip but I just want a wash, cut & blow (dry :-) ).  This is B.S. though.  If AOC cut her own hair the rabid rw would knock her for that too.   To paraphrase Groucho in Horsefeathers (1932): “Whatever it is [they’re] against it:

      Or the Ramones a few decades later….

      I didn't refuse to vote for Hillary Clinton because any goddamned Russian told me to. I refused to vote for her because she is a warmongering, election stealing, Goldman Sachs fellating, Republican WHORE. No offense to sex workers.

    The Moonies just don’t know anything about haircuts, I suppose.

    Is the Moonie Times really that desperate to generate headlines?

    $80 actually seems cheap for a cut in DC.  I paid $55 at a Regis couple weeks ago. (Salon is located in a mall that is still doing well in a small city in fly over country.)

    I do have a vague recollection of HRC paying close to a grand in Manhattan for a cut and color in late 2016.

    Desperate measures to distract because they know they can’t attack her on actual issues.

    A backhand compliment to AOC and a pretty good indication that she’s making real progress.

      Exactly. They’re scraping the bottom of the barrel to have to come up with a “gotcha” that lame.

      They’re not the brightest bunch though: these are the same clowns that would probably claim hypocrisy on the part of anybody that was against Trump on the wall fiasco because they live in houses that have walls.
