W magazine has learned that the Guv has been traveling with a hairstylist named Angela, who usually works out of a salon called the Hair Grove in Westlake Village, CA. As a source recently told us, Palin was directed to the Hair Grove by none other than Cindy McCain, who found her own current hairstylist, Piper, at the Hair Grove. Supposedly, McCain had been inquiring about hair extensions. (Please note, the absence of last names here isn't our attempt to be folksy--we simply weren't able to confirm them since the Hair Grove stopped answering our questions.)
At any rate, Angela is definitely on leave now from the Hair Grove. As the salon's receptionist will tell you, "She's not available until November 4th."
