We pay an ode to some of the most powerful, influential women from across the globe and their trademark looks!
She’s the woman-in-charge as Chairperson and CEO of PepsiCo, the second largest food and beverage business in the world. US business magazine, Fortune noted a few years ago, how most of the successful CEOs including Nooyi part their hair to the left. While that seems like a hair-raising observation, one can’t help but notice how her style is simple and no-fuss.
The stunning actress is conquering it all, from movies to cutting her own album to playing the lead role in American TV series, Quantico. Her hairstyles alternate between stylish retro looks and choppy, edgy ‘dos with undercut braids depending on the role she’s playing that day.
She’s a lawyer, writer and most famously, the First Lady of the United States of America. She’s known for her personal style that’s classy with a touch of pizzazz, while her hair is always perfectly in place in a sleek and layered long bob. If America is looking to seek out countries that own weapons of mass destruction, they shouldn’t be looking any further than the White House itself!
Aung San Suu Kyi
The strong but soft-spoken Burmese stateswoman and winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize for Peace, may have been placed under house arrest for 15 years, but that didn’t take away her feminine touch. She’s always seen wearing flowers in her hair, which she attributes to Burmese tradition and a habit she picked up from her mother.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, is not just the United Kingdom’s, but the world’s sweetheart. Her trademark look is flowing tresses with soft curls, but she is often seen at charity events, galas and more wearing her hair up in elegant buns and updos to go with that perfect smile.
The editor-in-chief of American Vogue is known for her demanding and strong personality. Her trademark pageboy bob hairstyle reflects her no-nonsense attitude perfectly. Coupled with her dark glasses and statement neckpieces, she always manages to cut a fierce picture.
The popular talk show host and producer has inspired millions of people across the world with ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’. Over the decades, she’s experimented with straightened hair, but always goes back to embracing her African roots by flaunting gorgeous tight curls and big, beautiful hair.
