CPAC Hair Doo Disaster

-By Warner Todd Huston

Being the king of sartorial splendor and a noted expert in haute couture (is it sad that I could spell that Frechified word without spell check?) it falls to me to dish about the worst hairdo at CPAC. That doo disaster belongs to Michelle Duggar of the famed doubling Duggars from TV. Call it a Garridoo Disaster.

Let’s leave ideology aside, as I find many of her ideas personally appealing, and let’s just talk hair, shall we, girlfriends? The Duggar doo was a disaster, plain and simple.

The whole thing seems to be a melange of styles. The poodle cut, the front flip, the long and straight, the perm, the mullet, even. All may work separately but together it is a hiarifying experience.

This doo consists of a front wave that sweeps down across her forehead in a straight spear of hair. That shock emanates from a wealth of curls that cascades down like an Hassidic Jew addicted to Rogaine. Yet the back of her head features a straightened blanket of hair that flows down her back.

The term “rat’s nest”come to mind. This hair was unfortunate enough without having to be featured on CPAC’s big screen as Mrs. Duggar sat on a panel of women whose charge was to analyze the TV show The View.

One CPACer was heard to say, “I just can’t focus on a word of what she’s saying just looking at that hair!”

Let’s not act as if Mrs Diggar is some how bad or evil for her hair, let’s not hate her because she’s beautiful… let’s just tell her to avoid SuperCuts for her next hirsute happening.

Snark, out.
