I’m delving into the world of politics this week; don’t be so surprised I’m a cultural and well-educated young(ish) woman. Okay I confess, I’m just going to take a pop (well everyone else has) at Nick Clegg and his technicolour hair. I don’t have the political know-how to engage in a political satirical debate, don’t make me feel bad about it.
Professional cry-baby (deputy Prime Minister) Nick “why does no one like me” Clegg, appears to have taken a leaf out of Pixie Geldof’s book and seems to have dyed his hair a rather fetching shade of orange, albeit less subtle than Pixie’s chosen shade. Just a few short days ago Clegg was photographed with distinctly greying hair, perhaps stress from being one of the nation’s most hatred man. But on an appearance on the politic show on Sunday, his hair is conspicuous in its lack of grey.
His fresh auburn locks would suggest he has taken a few moments away from clambering up the colon of, Prime Minister David Cameron, to get out the just for men (and leave it on slightly too long). His spokesperson denies the claims that Clegg has hit the bottle (the hair dye bottle that is), but celebrity hair colourist Carmelo Guastella disagrees. Carmelo, and his experienced eye think that Clegg has made the mistake of going for a permanent dye, instead of a semi-permanent version. Permanent dyes are a lot more obvious than their semi-permanent counterparts and unfortunately for Clegg, are extremely noticeable underneath bright studio lighting.
Clegg recently admitted in a (too) revealing interview that he regularly cries to music, which did nothing to help his ‘wet lettuce’ image. So perhaps he has dyed his hair in hope of wooing some voters with the local elections coming up next month. Whatever the reason, Clegg needs to get himself back to the salon and tone that hair down; it’s just a bit too Tin Tin for me.
