Donald Trump's choice of hairdo is, to say the least, unusual. We know this.
There are all kinds of haircuts out there, but very few are quite like The Donald's.
His trademark barnet has often been used as a focal point for a bit of presidential piss-taking, be that through the use of inflatable babies and chickens with quiffs, or just any time his hair tries to escape as he boards an aircraft.
But just how exactly has his hair got to be such a state? Well, apparently it is the product of a unique combination of scalp reduction surgery, strong hairspray and the impatient use of hair dye.
Journalist, Michael Wolff, made the revelations in his book, Fire and Fury: Inside The Trump White House.
He claims the President's daughter, Ivanka, relished jokingly discussing her dad's odd head of hair with friends.
A section of the book reads: "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 centre and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray."
Scalp reduction surgery aims to reduce the size of a man's bald spot, though Trump himself has admitted he still struggles to obscure what remains of his.
During a speech to the Conservative Political Action Conference, he spotted himself on the big screens and - in a moment of self-awareness - said: "I try like hell to hide that bald spot."
The unusual gingery tone of the President's 'furry' head is also explained in the book.
"The colour, she (Ivanka) would point out to comical effect, was from a product called Just for Men - the longer it was left on, the darker it got. Impatience resulted in Trump's orange-blond hair colour," claims Wolff.
Well, they say good things come to those who wait, and whether you're a fan of Trump or not, you would have to say he isn't exactly a patient man. Then again, it's hard not to argue that a lot of good things have come to him during his 72 years on this earth. So maybe good things come to those who don't wait.
Or maaaybe, we can't draw any broader conclusions from the above because the book is 'fake news' by a 'mentally deranged author'...
I don't need to tell you who said that.
