Throughout history, a woman's hair has been seen as her crowning glory and an expression of her femininity and desirability. For many women, their lustrous locks and shining tresses are closely tied to their identity, and even at a glance, a woman's choice of hairstyle communicates a great deal about who she is. Take a look at these powerful female leaders and what their hairstyles convey about their personality:
First Lady, United States of America
Her signature look: The Bob
What it says about her: confident, elegant, and polished
This hairstyle is typically seen on women who are ambitious and assertive. When Michelle Obama steps into the spotlight, she exudes sophistication and style. Not only does the First Lady always make a fashion statement, but her hairstyle is what truly tops off her influential appearance.
Queen Elizabeth II: Monarch, United Kingdom
Her signature look: The Royal Bouffant
What it says about her: conservative yet glamorous
Her Majesty's appearance--from her ceremonial gowns to her hairstyle--prove "it's not what you wear, but how you wear it." The way she wears her hair expresses an understated glamour and is a major part of what makes her a style icon. Her halo of natural short-length curls is also suitable for wearing hats (which she wears often), tiaras, and her crown. The Queen's carries off her conservative style with confidence and poise.
Angela Merkel: Chancellor, Germany
Her signature look: Short with bangs
What is says about her: Tough, daring, engaging
As one of the most powerful women in politics, it's not a surprise that her hair reflects her strong personality. Although many German men underestimated her at first, they soon learned that she is a force to be reckoned with. Under Merkel's leadership, Germany has procured the largest and strongest economy in Europe. While her short-length hair commands attention and respect, the bangs add a softness to her overall look that makes her more approachable and well-liked among the German people.
Dilma Rousseff: President of Brazil
Her signature look: Short and teased
What is says about her: Passionate and assertive
It takes a truly confident woman to pull off this look. This hairstyle is bold and draws attention, and is usually worn by a woman with the same qualities. Some have said that the upward sweep of her hair foretold of her country's ascent to financial security. Her free flowing yet carefully coifed style suggests she is comfortable in her own skin, but also likes order and consistency.
