The US Presidential candidate had New York City’s Bergdorf Goodman department store on lockdown yesterday while getting an expensive hair job at the John Barrett Salon
Melbourne: Hillary Clinton recently got New York City’s department store Bergdorf Goodman locked down to get a $600 (approx Rs 38,500) haircut at the John Barrett Salon. It is being said that the 67-year-old US Presidential candidate was spotted being ushered through a side entrance of the store yesterday.

The staff closed off one side of Bergdorf’s so that Clinton could come in privately to get her hair done and an elevator bank was also shut down so she could ride up alone, a source said.
Clinton was styled in a private area of the salon and other customers couldn’t get a glimpse of her. Clinton is reportedly a regular client of John Barrett, who charges $600 for a haircut. An additional $600 is tacked on for a dye job.
Not the only one!
Clinton isn’t the only Democrat presidential candidate to receive a high-priced coiffe, either. In 2007, Democrat candidate John Edwards received two haircuts that cost $400 (approximately Rs 25,500) each from Beverly Hills stylist Joseph Torrenueva.
Do you remember Bill Clinton’s ‘Hairgate’?
During his time as president, Hillary Clinton’s husband Bill Clinton shut down four runways at Los Angeles International Airport in 1993 to receive a hair cut from Beverly Hills’ hairstylist Christophe, possibly “the most expensive haircut in history,” according to media reports. The incident was dubbed “Hairgate”.
Bill got a $200 (approx R12,500) haircut on Air Force One as it was idling for an hour at LAX, shutting down two runways and diverting numerous flights.
