The Housewife (As well as all other archetypes) shares the same basic Electra Heart appearance, with blond hair and a heart on the left cheek. The housewife is seen wearing her hair in a vintage Monroe style or side parted and usually wears vintage dresses that represent the typical appearance of a 50s housewife.
The Su-Barbie-A archetype is a representive of the all-perfect American housewife and the general concept of the fake perfection. The Su-Barbie-A is a loving mother and wife who set all of her ambition and potentional aside, to stay loyal to her family, which is killing her from the inside that she can't accept the fact that she's stuck in the suburbs forever, having to deal with a marriage that was never really right for her, however she is too kind and caring to even think of running away or leaving her family or even doing something about her current relationship with her husband, so she faces the fact that her world is falling apart with a smile, like everyone expects from her.
