Old gray Mitt

Merle D. Wright November 1st, 2012

You may never read about this anywhere else, but Mitt Romney’s hair is a toupee. No, I’m just kidding. I would wager, though, that Mitt has his personal barber traveling with him — and not just any barber. This one knows color. Check those gray sideburns next time you see Mitt on TV, and freeze the picture if you can. Notice how all of Mitt’s hair is a charcoal color except for the sideburns and temples. The sideburns are totally gray, and the temples have a gray that is perfectly swept on for, I’d guess, about three inches.

If you had my trained eye, you would recognize that the gray has been combed in and then given a smooth brush to make the temples just perfect. Now, when old Mitt puts on a sport coat with a white shirt and a tie and denims, he’s sure he’s the sexiest 65-year-old in America. How do I know this? Professional experience from my barber days.

Now here’s a really big give away:

the back of Mitt’s neck. Take a good look, and you will see gray at the bottom. This is where Mitt’s barber trimmed — just a little bit between colorings and, whoops, exposed some of Mitt’s gray roots. You read it here, first, and I’d bet I’m right.
