In the past, first daughter and top White House adviser Ivanka Trump has spilled the beans to her friends on how her father’s unusual hairstyle came to be, author Michael Wolff’s new book reveals.
‘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 security by a stiffening spray,’ Wolff wrote.
The book also claims that the president, at age 71, is no longer a natural blond.
‘The color, she would point out in comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men – the longer it was left on, the darker it got,’ Wolff said.
Just for Men is usually used to hide gray hairs.
‘Impatience resulted in Trump’s orange-blond hair color,’ the forthcoming book, entitled ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,’ said.
The author tells the hair-raising tale as a way to explain Ivanka Trump’s relationship with the president of the United States.
Wolff characterizes it as ‘in no way conventional,’ having seen Ivanka take on the helper role ‘not just in [Trump’s] business dealings, but in his marital realignments.’
Ivanka, the president’s eldest daughter, is a product of his first marriage with Ivana Trump.
Since then he’s divorced Ivana, married and divorced Marla Maples and married Melania Trump.
‘If it wasn’t pure opportunism, it was certainly transactional,’ Wolff continued in his assessment of the Ivanka-Donald bond. ‘For Ivanka, it was all business – building the Trump brand, the presidential campaign, and now the White House.’
‘She treated her father with a degree of detachment, even irony, going so far as to make fun of his comb-over to others,’ Wolff said.
The president’s hair has been a sore spot for years for the businessman, who’s argued publicly that his locks are real.
The now defunct website Gawker, suggested Trump’s look was due to a $60,000 hair piece. Author and hair expert Gersh Kuntzman, writing for the New York Daily News, argued that it was not so, saying Trump simply had a bad combover and possibly had some hair replacement done.
