Paul Brownfield, who writes mostly for the “Calendar” section of the Los Angeles Times, today gets into the aerodynamics of Donald’s Trump’s remarkable hair. He describes it as “a reddish plate, like Fiestaware,” and we learn that Trump a) colors his hair, b) is a shut-in whose hair rarely comes in contact with the elements, and c) sports a wraparound, not a comb-over. Hairstylist John Maechling, owner of the John@1422 salon in Santa Monica, explains the difference to Brownfield:
A comb-over is when you take the hair from the part and bring it directly over the top of the head. A wraparound. . . involves taking the hair from the part and swirling it around the head in a clockwise mothion around the front of the face, whereupon you slap it all down with hairspray. Think of a frozen-yogurt swirl, only on somebody’s head. Matted down with hairspray.
