Hey, ladies! Here's a great way to protest Rosemary's Baby's election to the presidency!

Make yourself look as ugly as possible!

Such as: cutting your tresses off for a hideous new 'do–or getting rid of your blonde and growing in your gray. Mmm!

And, according to New York magazine's Heidi Mitchell, that's exactly what disappointed "I'm With Her" females all over America–or at least among the Washinton, DC arty class class–are doing. Take performing-arts marketer Julianna Evans, who fell into such a "downward spiral' starting on the evening of Nov. 8 that she stopped going to the hair stylist who had been keeping her hair light brown for 20 years:

“I cried for three days,” the Atlanta native, 45, recalls. “I felt like it was the worst thing, politically, that ever happened in my lifetime. It was catastrophic.” By Friday she noticed grays growing in, so she put on her big-girl panties and dragged herself to the drugstore. “Literally without thinking, I grabbed the Natural Black box by Garnier,” she says. “I was like, f** it! The election deadened my soul. I think I wanted to do something defiant to feel stronger.”

She wasn't the only one:

Over at Georgetown Salon & Spa, one of the most exclusive salons in D.C., much-sought-after colorist and stylist Mariangela Moore has witnessed this “take control” movement daily for the past month. “One of my clients said, ‘Think of Melania Trump and go in the opposite direction,’” she says. “She said, ‘I don’t want to be that person people see as sexual, I want to be seen as strong.’” Another professional woman cut her hair into a flattop. One client got rid of the blonde highlights she maintained forever, “because she said she never wants to be seen as cheap. I don’t know where that idea came from, but maybe that’s what she’s hearing.” A move away from the look of political parrot Kellyanne Conway, perhaps. In the comfort of Moore’s salon chair, D.C. women are expressing their anger and frustration, and taking a stand with their hair: Many have gone dark and lopped off length.

When you want to look like the opposite of Melania, you're suffering a lot.

George Washington University teaching instructor Dr. Kristian Henderson had been battling with her hair for years, but after the election, she finally took off her weave and cut it all off. “The election results felt like an attack on minorities, women, and marginalized people in general. Having long hair was my attempt to fit into society, so after the election, I felt a need to exert my ‘uniqueness’ and not tie my femininity to the length of my hair,” she says. Vegan chef Mya Zeronis — who says she’s “a minority in almost every way possible: immigrant woman of color and LGBQT person” — clipper-cut her brown hair on November 18 “to send a message to the Trump presidency.”

And I'm sure that Trump has gotten that vegan-chef message loud and clear.

Well, different strokes (of your hair-stylist's scissors) for different folks. As the still-grieving Julianna Evans told Mitchell: "“Now, I feel like my hair says you can’t bring me down. This misogyny will not persevere."
