‘Mad Men’: Whoa, Peggy’s hair!

So the ‘Mad Men’ Facebook page just released a few new pictures from Season 4 of Matt Weiner’s show. We’re clicking through, clicking through -- OK, everything looks pretty normal, nothing to see here -- but then boom! We land on this picture of Peggy (Elisabeth Moss) sporting what can only be referred to as a stylin’ bouffant. Bye bye, baby bangs of prior seasons.

The thing that’s maybe most notable about this picture is how much it recalls our lady politicians of today. Not to pull a Carly Fiorina here, but I could easily see this coif on my state superintendent of public instruction or some other politico I may or may not have voted for in the last primary election. Granted, today’s hairdressers are probably a little more fond of thinning out a big puppy like this with a few well-placed razor cuts in the bangs, but still, is Peggy not looking positively judicial?


Anyway, I thought you’d like to know. This season looks like it’s going to be fun. Next stop, beehives?
