Looming government shutdowns, confidence-shaking debt limit standoffs and divisive payroll tax melees may rattle rank-and-file Members. But absolutely nothing stops the impeccably coiffed House Minority Leader from tending to her famous ’do.
California Democrat Nancy Pelosi starts each and every morning with a quick trip to her daily hair appointment at the Four Seasons Salon, George.
Pelosi’s hair stylist dished to HOH about her routine trips, which occur five days a week and consist of blow-drying and styling. Occasional splurges include color, highlights and a trim. The Four Seasons, however, claimed no responsibility for the shorter cut she debuted a few months back.
The tony salon is a hotbed for politicians past and present, counting former Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), now president of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, as a twice-weekly visitor.
Other Congressional clients include Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).
Each year since 1990, CQ Roll Call has reviewed the financial disclosures of all 541 senators, representatives and delegates to determine the 50 richest members of Congress. This year's report, derived from forms covering the calendar year 2012, shows it took a net worth of $6.67 million to crack the exclusive club.
