Valentina Petrenko is a Russian senator with seriously intense hair. Her giant flat-top defies gravity, and blowdryers.
On Thursday, Alex Bruce-Smith, an associate news editor at Pedestrian Daily, tweeted several photos of Petrenko’s mile-high looks. As the tweet spread, many began to wonder: is that brunette tower a massive wig?
According to Petrenko, it is not. “I’m so tired of answering those questions,” the career politician told Echo of Moscow in 2015. “I just have curly hair. I lift it upwards with some hair pins, that is all.”
Speculation on Twitter, however, continues to run rampant. And so do photos of Petrenko; seemingly every half hour a dazzling new image of the hairdo is unearthed. And yet a key question remains. Hey Valentina, can you show some of us how exactly you use those bobby pins?
