Did you know our commander in chief has a haircut modeled after Roman Emperor Julius Caesar?
That's right, President Obama's cut is called the Caesar, a classicstyle master barber Derek "Buck" Williams of Robert Andrew Salon &Spa says "has always been around."
According to Williams, a recent trend for men is to cut off theirlocks and wear a clean-cut look. He mentioned Justin Timberlake asanother notable who has jumped on the latest style.
Rapper Jay-Z, who recently showed the world even he could "crash"the Situation Room during his visit to the White House on Friday, alsowears a Caesar haircut.
"President Obama doesn't have the shape-up on the top as hard as Jay-Z," Williams said. "President Obama has a soft shape-up."
Williams said he doesn't only see his clients and celebritiesfollowing Obama's clean cut, but also more men wearing tighter-fittingclothing and rolling up their sleeves.
"I think Obama has changed the whole man," Williams said.
As for battling Obama's attack of the grays? Williams said thepresident's stylist should use temporary dye to maintain the color forthe next few years.
