Sarah Palin's hair and makeup stylists cost John McCain's campaign $110,000 for the 10 weeks she was vice-presidential candidate, reports the New York Times. Palin’s makeup artist—an Emmy nominee for her work on So You Think You Can Dance?—pocketed over $68,000 for the campaign work. Her hair stylist made $42,000.
Much of the spending came in the campaign's last weeks, with Palin's stylist paid $32,400 and hairdresser $23,400 between October 16 and November 24, according to a new campaign finance report filed with the Federal Election Commission.
