The interest of the Western press

The appearance of Valentina Petrenko recently suddenly interested and Western bloggers, and with them, and the media — they have already devoted many articles. The Senator quickly became a real star. In early March about the hair Petrenko wrote the Daily Mail, Mashable, The Cut, the New York Post and a number of publications. Materials left under headings: “the Russian Senator Hair — amazing secret”, “From hair Russian policy, it is impossible to look away” and stuff like that.

It has something from “James bond” villains. This cool look. The impeccable style. The Soviet past. Only instead of holding a fluffy white cat on her lap, she wears brown on the head, spoke about Petrenko columnist for Newsweek.

“Pozhamkat her hair”

Among those who conquered the hairstyle of Valentina Alexandrovna, and celebrities have. So, the writer and TV presenter Tatyana Tolstaya tells why he decided to invite Petrenko as a guest in the program “School for scandal”:

I was absolutely not interested, as Senator Petrenko leads the country and inhabiting its peoples from his high post and direct it at all… No, I was driven by the most obscene and dark desires. I wanted to lay both hands on the head of the Senator Petrenko and polcat her hair. And what’s her hair — you know.

Of course, such a broadcast would program crazy ratings, but, fortunately or unfortunately, Fat has kept its rush:

Don’t know how I stood it an hour. How not rushed and not gripping. And after recording, too. Gave the Senator to leave. I do not know. Only willpower. She’s the only one. But the tension is unbearable. Now told, and relieved a little bit.

This unique

Interestingly, in the Internet there are many sites giving advice on how to do my hair “like Petrenko”. In particular, suggest “each curl backcomb from the roots”, to use a varnish strong fixation, and then stab curls invisible, “giving hair shape square”. However, as we think, even with a gallon of lacquer strong hold and a ton of studs to repeat the image of Valentina Alexandrovna would be quite difficult, so it is original.
