Cost Of John Edwards' Haircut Hits $1,250

If John Edwards wins the White House he can thank his hair stylist. The candidate whose campaign is based on fighting poverty spends more on haircuts than the average person makes in a month. Looking at the last few elections nominees running for President fit the cookie cutter mold. It is all about style over substance:
Beverly Hills stylist Joseph Torrenueva tells the Washington Post that one of his haircuts for Democratic presidential hopeful John Edwards cost $1,250 because Torrenueva had to fly to Atlanta and missed two days of work as a result.

"He has nice hair," Torrenueva told the newspaper. "I try to make the man handsome, strong, more mature and these are the things, as an expert, that's what we do."

Torrenueva, a Democrat, said he began cutting Edwards' hair for free but wound up charging him $300 to $500 per haircut, plus the cost of airfare and hotel stays. That's because Torrenueva was often forced to meet Edwards on the campaign trail to shear his locks.
