What Would You Do: A Trump Re-‘Do?

close formula

It’s a question that has perplexed a generation: what exactly is going on atop Donald Trump’s head? Now that the man is running for prez, his infamous comb-over is spending more time than ever in the spotlight. Descriptions range from “an ear of corn” to “a CGI sunset” to “some diffused, unsavory salmon” (thanks, Kristen Stewart). One thing we do know—Donald himself has confirmed that it is, in fact, real. So, politics aside, we wondered, “What would you do if Donald appeared in your salon?”


“I would cut his sides up and get rid of that God-awful comb-over—with either a short side sweep with a part or a short, messy fauxhawk. As far as color goes, I would ash it out a bit: Level 8 ash + 10-volume. And let’s not forget to trim those brows!” @marciaomarI


“Whatever he wants! I’m pretty sure the man knows what he likes. I would give him the best damn comb-over in town if that’s what he asked for.” @bcosalon


“Hahaha. You really just asked a bunch of opinionated women who work with sharp objects this question?”


Who wore it better? One Twitter-er compared Trump’s hair to an ear of corn.


“Treat him like any other valued client who has opinions that differ from mine. I would maintain the cut—it’s his signature— but that stained, on-scalp haircolor could be much improved. I’d say, ‘Men look more distinguished with a little gray, so let’s make your color more natural and blended.’” @ambertresses


“I would point to the sign that says, ‘We have the right to refuse service to anyone.’” @pizza_scum


“Give him a hard part with a high fade down the sides. Knock out some of that gold with an 8AV + 20-volume. Clean up the brows, tint them a bit darker, and recommend a not-so-orange
fake tan.” @marcia.radcliffe


“I would walk out of the salon and go home.” @misskerrylee


“I wouldn’t change his hairstyle. It is unique. His hair is ‘The Donald Trump’ hair. I can’t think of too many people who are synonymous with their hair the way he is. It says, ‘I can do whatever I want.’” @phila996
