Someone Photoshopped Donald Trump with 'normal hair' -- and the difference is striking

  • President Trump’s hair is well-known for its unique qualities.
  • A Twitter user imagined what he might look like with a more conservative hairstyle.
  • The difference was striking.

For better or worse, President Trump’s hair is famous.

While it once was the subject of both fascination and derision by many, it has now been superseded by more serious topics like healthcare, taxes, and North Korea.

But that doesn’t mean the hair topic has gone away. A tweet with a Photoshop of what Trump might look like with the hair of a typical 71-year-old has been circulating on Twitter.

It shows a more average men’s hairline and drastically changes his appearance. It also puts into focus just how much Trump’s signature hairstyle changes how he looks.

GQ similarly gave Trump a makeover back in January.

Trump has been relatively open about his hair, repeatedly insisting it’s real and telling doubters to pull it or mess with it. In 2013, Trump tweeted, “I do not wear a ‘wig.’ My hair may not be perfect but it’s mine.”

He also wrote in “How to Get Rich” that he colours it because he does not like grey hair.

A hair surgeon who spoke with Business Insider said that Trump’s hair quality is most likely due to a hair transplant. His doctor also said that Trump takes Finasteride, a drug that was originally meant to shrink an enlarged prostate but that is also used to prevent hair loss — but it usually doesn’t offer more hair growth.
