The truth about Donald Trump's hair revealed
Is the secret out about the president's unusual hairstyle?
According to the explosive new release Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House by Michael Wolff, President Donald Trump's hair is apparently a much-talked about topic around the White House — at least, for his daughter Ivanka (via the New York Post). In his book, Wolff claims Ivanka often mocks her father's 'do and enjoys explaining how Trump's look is achieved to friends.
Wolff writes, "She often described the mechanics behind it to friends: an absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray."2018 Critics' Choice Awards: the complete list of nominees and winners
Plastic surgeon Elie Levine told The Washington Post that scalp-reduction surgery — or scalp rotation surgery — is, essentially, when "flaps of the scalp containing hair are basically stretched and sewn into place to move hair around the head." Levine states that these surgeries, which were to designed to cover bald spots, are outdated and often cause hair to grow back in odd patterns. As such, Levine noted, "It forces you to groom the hair in a very particular way to look, if not normal, then normal-ish."
As for the unnatural color of Trump's 'do? Well, apparently it's the result of bad at-home dye jobs. "The color, she would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men — the longer it was left on, the darker it got," Wolff wrote in his book, adding, "Impatience resulted in Trump's orange-blond hair color."
Guess that solves one mystery. Well, maybe. Considering that Trump called Fire and Fury a "phony book" and said that it was "full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don't exist," we're not too sure what Trump would have to say about Wolff's words about his hair.Harvey Weinstein reportedly faces sex trafficking lawsuit
