Maria Shriver grew up connected to the Kennedy family. That gave her access not only to political power and wealth, but the high-quality hair genetics displayed by President John Kennedy (her uncle) and others. Shriver has written her mother considered hair "integrally connected to her sense of beauty and femininity." That thinking may well have stayed with Shriver, as she moved into a career in broadcast journalism.
Shriver displayed professional and solid styles as a network news anchor, such as this look from CBS News in 1986. Once her husband Arnold Schwarzenegger became Governor of California, she stepped away from full-time TV work and let her hair go longer. But the great body in her hair strands remained, keeping her looks attractive whether they're kept straight or display wave. One supporter of her entry to the Hall summed it up simply: "Volume!"
Shriver won the 2010 Crown Award for Best Hairstyle in Government and Politics, as her husband left office. The hair went even longer after that, as she moved into more activism and inspiration-driven projects. Yet the thickness and body in the hair remained. While Shriver titled a chapter in one of her books "Superwoman Is Dead....", supporters consider her proof that Super-Hair is not.
