Edwards’ Hair Stylist Tells All

I don’t think this will help John Edwards. Joseph Torrenueva, Edwards’ hair stylist, has spoken to The Washington Post. Among things we learn:

“He has nice hair,” the stylist said of Edwards in an interview. “I try to make the man handsome, strong, more mature and these are the things, as an expert, that’s what we do.”

The $400 hair cut wasn’t even a record:

Torrenueva provided his first five haircuts for Edwards in late 2003 and early 2004 free of charge. “I was just doing it because I’m a Democrat,” he said.

After Edwards became Sen. John F. Kerry’s vice presidential running mate in summer 2004, Torrenueva started charging. There was one cut for $300 in mid-July in Los Angeles, shortly before the Democratic National Convention, the one for $1,250 in August in Atlanta, another in Washington in early October before a debate with Vice President Cheney, and the last was in Ohio shortly before the election.

At least it might distract people from the more serious news that Edwards lagged far behind Obama and Clinton in second quarter fund raising, and barely beat Bill Richardson.
