designcrowd, a marketplace for digital and graphic projects, has asked their community of creatives to imagine some of the world’s most recognizable political personalities with a hipster hair bun. both historical and current leaders are pictured with a diverse selection of hair styles, from messy up-dos to neatly tied top-knots. surprisingly, most of the male figures — even former leaders george washington and abraham lincoln — seem to suit their new locks, although it’s safe to say cornrows aren’t the most flattering fashion for george w. bush. take a look at the designcrowd user submitted interpretations, below.
