Hair Watch: Makeover Madness

From the Washington Times:

Image is everything

“Nobody asked us, but we felt it was our civic duty to help these [presidential] candidates look their best,” explains Pirooz Sarshar, co-founder of the Grooming Lounge barbershop in downtown Washington.

“I guarantee the ticket that follows our advice will be sitting pretty in the White House this time next year,” he says, echoing this column’s observations that more attention is being paid to the candidates’ looks than their stance on issues.

Without further ado, the Grooming Lounge’s tips:

President Bush: Cut your hair closer to eliminate excess puffiness and flyaways, which make you look less refined.

Vice President Dick Cheney: Shave your head or crop your hair ultra close to give you a younger, stronger look.

Sen. John Kerry: Bring down the height of your hair to create a closely cropped style more in line with your face shape. And trim your eyebrows.

Sen. John Edwards: Add some texture to your hair to eliminate “helmet head” and make you seem less boyish and more sophisticated.
