Mount Rushmore of CNBC hair

          Posted: Sunday, July 1, 2012


CNBC grande dame Sue Herera likes to say, "It's all about the hair."

These 4 hirsute heroes have ascended to the peak of CNBC's Mount Rushmore of Hair.

Mary Thompson: Prettiest Hair on Cable Television, the George Washington of this group, as blond and vibrant as ever.

Bob Pisani: Steely shock of gracefully graying mane redefines "distinguished" for CNBC's frontman of the NYSE's financial TV studio bustling posts of specialist activity.

Julia Boorstin: Show-stopping L.A. reporter who formerly turned heads with curls is Hollywood's most eye-catching redhead since Molly Ringwald.

David Faber: "I do not dye my hair. That's ridiculous," is what this still-youthful CNBC legend told venerable business great Ken Langone in December 2010, and we'll take his word for it.

Not at the peak, but worthy of a peek


Pete Najarian: Don't mess with this badass who, perhaps despite outward appearances, is the most measured and restrained talker on Fast Money. Rarely visible on camera, this linebacker-caliber ponytail more than makes up for all that's lost on the top.

Seema Mody: Exotic treasure of Englewood Cliffs not only quickly established herself as CNBC's best-dressed, but with a bit more tenure likely makes the top.


Jon Fortt: The totally bald approach is a rarity at CNBC.

Alexandra Lebenthal: If you've ever gotten a social invite from a VIP, most definitely the person you want to consult. While you're at it, gaze in awe at the length and perfection (front and back images) of this CNBC contributor's authentically aristocratic mane.


Jane Wells: On a farm, or the beach, few are as photographable as the World's Hippest Business TV reporter.

Trish Regan: Yes, she moved on to Bloomberg a while ago. So ... what's the problem ...?

Joe Kernen: Same color and crop as the early days; likely as permanent as The Scowl.


Louisa Bojesen: Set the alarm; CNBC's Danish delight (and former Chicago university student) is generally only seen by American viewers before 6 a.m.

Zachary Karabell: Now in graybeard era, scholarly/retro/free-spirited combination still packs much of the oomph of a decade ago.

Alison Deans: Discovered (for TV purposes) by Louis Rukeyser, now contributes to CNBC in the curliest of ways.


Mandy Drury: New South Wales' loss is northeastern New Jersey's gain.

Steve Grasso: The conscience of the NYSE floor crew, No. 386's classic cut invokes both Don Draper & Michael Corleone (Part II).

Becky Quick: Always capable of being confused with Jennifer Aniston, CNBC's most popular anchor might rank higher with a more risk-on approach.

Carl Quintanilla: Once-shaggy reporter look has given way — without sacrificing follicles — to buttoned-down studio host.


Tim Seymour: Could be in "Grease," or invested in Greece. Everything about this emerging markets trader oozes "hotshot" — except that his televised stock-market advice ranks among the most conservative.

Kayla Tausche: CNBC's rare Southern belle succeeding with a short crop for now; will have to take it to the next level to reach the peak.

Stephen Weiss: Virtually bad-hair-day-proof with this distinguished old-school look.

Sharon Epperson: The babe of The Burgh — CNBC's Pride of Pittsburgh remains one of the network's most understated female stars.


Sue Herera: Once a California blonde, always a California blonde.

Ron Insana: Famous for ditching the fake stuff, which affirms a pair of truths: 1) There is nothing wrong with trying to look as good as you can; and 2) Sometimes that's best accomplished being true to yourself.
