Her staff clarified to media that her wig on Tuesday wasn’t blue but mint green.
Women on Twitter rushed to commend her for her style and confidence in the face of backlash from conservative men.
One woman in the know gave the inside scoop about women in the public eye: “To the men who think Senator Sinema wearing a wig is weird: I hate to break this to you… but most of the women you’ve found fantasized about on TV and in magazines have hair tied to and clipped to their heads.”
Said one fan: “Incredible, right? Imagine being a statesperson AND interesting. So few achieve either, let alone both.”
After wearing a lavender-pink wig on the Senate floor in May, her office said Sinema was setting an example of social distancing from hair salons with a $12.99 wig.
