It wasn't too long ago that Democratic presidential hopeful and front-runner Hillary Clinton was begging her supporters to give her just $1 in a bid to ensure she secured the Democrat nomination. The hashtag #ImNotKiddingMaddi began trending, with screenshots of emails sent to supporters by the Clinton campaign asking for just $1 "right this second." While Clinton seemed to be trying to scrape together every single dollar possible just months ago to take out opponent Bernie Sanders, it seems that her financial woes are over, as she casually stepped into the exclusive Bergdorf Goodman salon in New York City, where a haircut and blow dry costs an astonishing $600.
The Daily Mail reports that Democrat front-runner Hillary Clinton was seen entering the exclusive and expensive Bergdorf Goodman salon in New York City while on her presidential campaign trail. Clinton received a $600 cut and blow dry before heading to Harlem bakery Make My Cake with her new hairdo. Clinton then met with veteran New York congressman Charlie Rangel at the bakery, as the congressman grew up in Harlem.
While a $600 haircut may not seem extreme for a millionaire like Clinton, it does seem odd considering her recent desperate attempts to get $1 "right this second" from supporters via a viral email campaign that sparked the Twitter hashtag #ImNotKiddingMaddi. This makes the presidential hopeful's $600 haircut seem over the top, as it would have taken 600 supporters to pay for the single cut and blow dry.

However, this isn't the first time that Clinton has felt she had "no money" when her bank account and lifestyle spoke otherwise. As the Inquisitr previously reported, Clinton claims that she had "no money" when her husband entered the White House and that they were "dead broke" when he left.
"We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea's education. You know, it was not easy."
But were the statements by Hillary Clinton true? We can look to the families' tax returns from during Bill Clinton's presidency, which ran from January 20, 1993, to January 20, 2001. For the eight years that Clinton was in office (tax years 1993-2000), the Clintons earned an astonishing $3,411,117. That averages to $426,389 each year that Bill Clinton served in office. This would mean that the Clintons were earning nearly nine times the average American's pay each year that Bill was in office, yet Hillary claims the family left office in debt.
Therefore, it would probably come as no surprise that after raising over $159 million on her campaign, she still feels like she needs more to compete. Every dollar counts, as the email points out, so why not demand it "right this second"? After all, Clinton's signature hair doesn't cut itself. In fact, that signature quiff comes at a tune of $600, and she can't possibly win the presidency without her trademark locks.
To be fair, it is not known if Clinton paid for the haircut and blow dry, which was allegedly given by John Barrett himself. However, this is not the first time that Clinton has frequented the salon. She has been photographed numerous times leaving Bergdorf Goodman after having her locks tamed. In addition to the $600 cut and blow dry, when Clinton needs her hair re-colored, it costs an additional $600 according to the salon menu price.
While Clinton is at Bergdorf Goodman she receives the star treatment, entering a specially designated side entrance to the building as they close off an elevator bank near the entrance for her arrival, giving Clinton privacy to enter and exit the salon.
What do you think about Clinton's expense hairstyle? Does it prove she is out of touch with the average voter?
