Prior to becoming the President of the United States, Donald Trump was perhaps best known for one thing: his hair (or, more accurately, the lack thereof). Like the man it sits atop, Trump’s hair is oddly-colored, unconventional, and at best, questionable. Now, I know it’s not cool to judge someone based on their appearance — and truthfully, my personal opinions about the newly-elected POTUS have little to do with his appearance and everything to do with his anti-woman policies and embarrassingly un-presidential attitude — but, this is a beauty magazine, so let’s talk beauty.
As far as hair goes, Trump’s is (in)famous in its own right: It’s been discussed at length in every major news publication (including the New York Times and The Washington Post), and was even a topic of contention during the 2016 presidential election, with many arguing Trump’s orange skin and beige combover made him look decidedly un-presidential. Suffice it to say, Trump’s look is not one many would want to copy for themselves. Jared Kushner, it appears, is the exception to the rule.
As Refinery29 reports, Kushner — who serves as a senior advisor to the Trump administration, and is married to Ivanka Trump — stepped out last week sporting a ‘do not unlike his father-in-law’s. First identified by Twitter user @mikesington, the 36-year-old’s hair seemed to be coated in gel and combed over his head, despite the fact that Kushner is not balding, and therefore, has no need for a true combover.
It remains unclear why Ivanka’s husband chose to style his hair that way: Maybe he was running late, and had his father-in-law do his hair for him. Perhaps he was ordered to sport a combover by the White House itself, in a (futile) attempt to get people to STOP MAKING FUN OF DONALD’S HAIR. Or, maybe, he’s just like every other little boy in the world, and wants to be just like his daddy (in-law).
Whatever the case, the combover is not any better a look on Kushner than it is on Trump (Twitter, it would appear, agrees). Here’s hoping the style-stealing stops here — because, truth be told, one Donald Trump is more than enough.
