He-who-must-not-be-named hair

I've had a bit of a personal crisis re: this November's hairpisode. The final months and weeks of our election were dominated by two main candidates, one of whom is distinctly orange in mien. I longed to post about his hair, but here's my problem -- the guy's gotten way too much attention as it is.

In fact, I was soooo looking forward to the end of the campaign season, to the end of the nonstop repetition of a certain name, on TV news, the Internet, radio -- just about everywhere. What's happened? The exact opposite of what I'd been hoping. So, in an effort to avoid feeding the hungry maw of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, for the purposes of this blog, I'll be referring to the president-elect (God help us) as "he-who-must-not-be-named."

At my latest hair appointment, I asked my stylist David what he thought was going on with he-who-must-not-be-named's hair.

"He colors it, of course," David said. "But it's also really long. Did you see that youtube clip where Jimmy Fallon messes up his hair?"

"No, really? Fallon did that?"

"He did, he really did. No, what I think is, the guy has serious cowlicks going on. I mean, you see how long it is in that clip. So there's hair loss, too, but he just lets it grow long, and then the cowlicks add that swoop when he combs it back."

The link to the clip linked above is from an NBC news bit, only 23 seconds. When I clicked on the full, 1 min. 14 sec. clip of the Jimmy Fallon segment, Youtube started by playing one of its ads: for Viagra. Perfect. Reality just keeps getting weirder.
