CAMPAIGN 2000

Stylists Bring Back the Bounce for Delegates

August 05, 2000|Newsday

PHILADELPHIA — The summer humidity might have been a bane for some GOP delegates, but it has been a boon for the city's hair salons.

Many extended their hours to accommodate Republicans in search of a quick fix.

Santa Mendoza, a delegate from Hartford, Conn., realized while preparing for a C-SPAN interview that her shoulder-length black hair needed "professional help."

She turned to a salon.

Thanks to a hair- and nail-emergency hotline, Susan Weddington of the Texas delegation was able to find a quick cure for a chipped nail.

"We're just kind of natural women in Texas," Weddington said. "We're not too pretentious, but we do like to have our nails done. It looks good when we wave."
