How does Donald Trump get his hair to look like... the way it looks? This is a long-standing New York mystery on a par with the disappearance of Judge Crater or the enduring popularity of Michael?s restaurant. I?m no hairdresser, but I have some expertise in this matter: I once spent three hours sitting just four feet from the back of Trump?s head at a Time magazine anniversary dinner, and yet I still couldn?t figure it out.
But then I saw this stunning photo, which ran with a recent VF Daily post by my colleague Juli Weiner discussing Oprah?s gracious offer to give Donald Trump a make-over. Thanks to the miracle of harsh lighting, the photo appears to reveal one of Trump?s most tightly-held secrets. Look closely. See the cross-hatching in Trump?s hair?
My baldly-stated thesis: this could be evidence of a rarely-sighted, possibly unprecedented ?double comb-over.? It looks as if a length of hair growing from the part on the left side of Trump?s pate has been combed left-to-right over the crown of his head, while a second length of hair, growing from the back of his head, has been combed back-to-front over the first length of hair. Salon-strength hair products likely play a role in the final construction of this lattice-like structure?which could also explain the ?ship?s prow? look one sometimes sees in side views of Trump.
Granted, there could be other explanations for the cross-hatching in Trump?s hair, such as a wood-grain tattoo on his scalp. Further study is clearly called for. Now that Trump is running for president, I nominate the Washington press corps to look into it, just as soon as they?re finished writing down everything Michele Bachmann says.

I'm 27 and am experiencing male pattern balding already. I'm fighting it by taking proscar (the same meds that is in propecia). Proscar comes in a 5mg tablet and Propecia is 1mg, so you have to get your doc to perscribe proscar and then cut the pill into 4ths. Proscar is 7 bucks for a 30 day supply of pills (30x4 = 120, 1mg doses) while propecia is like $100-$200 for a 30 day supply of 1 mg pills.
Proscar = covered by insurance
Propecia = not covered by insurance
