Cleopatra is revered for her beauty to this day. But did you know she was a master of pageantry too? Case in point, in 41 BC Cleopatra had an appointment to meet the triumvir Mark Antony. Now, we’ve all had meetings. If we really feel like putting on airs we might put on a little makeup, do something classy with our hair, even paint our nails. But Cleopatra had a golden barge with purple sails and silver oars made just for the occasion, and she rode up to the Roman beneath a gilded canopy while her servants fanned her and burned sweet incense around her. Needless to say, Antony was rather impressed. Think about that next time you need to make a great first impression.This shoulder length bob with bangs is another fine way to make a great impression. If you’re shooting for the Cleopatra look, it’s impossible to overdo it — the pharaoh wasn’t known for her subtlety. This wig also works for Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction!
