UBERBUILDER DONALD TRUMP’S LATEST ERECTION, Trump Place, on the Hudson River in Manhattan, is almost tasteful compared with his signature skyscrapers. But the model-chasing mogul hasn’t abandoned brassiness; he’s just plunked it atop his trademark smirk. In more conservative days Trump sported a standard-issue pompadour. Lately, though, his coif has become a crown of scorn – changing colors (red to orange to ocher) faster than Ivana changes boyfriends. His hair has been variously referred to as “suspect” (the Westchester County Journal News), “laughable” (the Washington Post), and a “loaf of challah” (the Toronto Star). Even David Letterman, who knows from dubious hair, mocked Trump’s mezzo-mullet as “proof that money can’t buy everything.” Getting away with bad hair is one thing in Atlantic City. But now Trump has nabbed a starring role in his own NBC reality series, The Apprentice.
We convened a coven of celebrity stylists, who offered to pitch in some free advice:
CLIENTS : Cindy Crawford, Sting, Elizabeth Taylor
ADVICE : “Trump’s a big, big guy, so that’s probably why he wears his hair big, big. I’d cut it shorter and not blow the shit out of it, and maybe see what his natural color is.”
