Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez — who’s waged war against the wealthy with a 70 percent tax rate proposal — shelled out more than $250 on a recent trip to the hair salon, according to a new report.
The socialist darling dropped big bucks — $80 on a haircut and $180 for lowlights — last month at Last Tangle Salon in downtown Washington, DC, the Washington Times reported, citing sources.
The outlet noted that a 20 percent tip, or $52, would bring the total to just over $312, while suggesting she could’ve saved about $100 for a chop at the “government-subsidized” Capitol Hill barbershop.
A salon staffer said Ocasio-Cortez was nice and even snapped selfies with customers.
Richard Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government, said it was a bad look for the freshman congresswoman who represents parts of the Bronx and Queens.
“There is nothing wrong with spending money to make yourself look better, especially as a personality who depends upon visual mediums for her make power,” he told the Washington Times. “But it is a bad look to spend hundreds of dollars to get your hair done to make a video decrying income inequality.”
Ocasio-Cortez declined to comment to the conservative outlet. She did not immediately return calls from The Post.
Some ripped the report as sexist, saying that spending $80 on a woman’s haircut is hardly unusual.
“1) this would obvs never be a story about a man 2) this is not an expensive haircut/color for a public figure who is frequently on TV 3) if her hair was raggedy, that would be the lead story instead,” wrote Jessica Valenti.
