One colorist at a salon in D.C. told the magazine she's noticed women, especially over 40, spontaneously coming in and chopping off inches or going all black or platinum.

Marion Jacobs, a professor of psychology at UCLA suggests these acts are coping mechanisms, telling NY Mag:

"The phenomenon is a way for women in D.C. to feel powerful in a moment where a stranger has seized the steering wheel."

Another stylist told the magazine one client said, "Think of Melania Trump and go in the opposite direction."

Stand by strand, women are taking a stand when it comes to their post-election hair.
