It seems like POTUS Donald Trump has a new hairdo and is embracing a more natural look for himself. While giving a briefing at the Rose Garden on Tuesday, July 14, Trump came out from the Oval Office with his signature orange-hairdo, now a silver-gray hue. Trump, 74, is well known for his obsession with his appearance and year-round tan. His new look sent social media into a frenzy with many taken up with his new non-blonde hue. Some social media users praised him while others criticized him.

One such user shared, "@realDonaldTrump you look very distinguished with gray hair!!!!!!!!" while another added, "I just saw your news conference from the rose garden, I just wanted you to know you look GREAT with gray hair!!! So handsome and presidential!!!!" "@realDonaldTrump I liked your new look with the gray hair today at your press conference. Looks good on you," wrote another supportive social media user.

Trump was also slammed by many users who believed he was just trying too hard. One such user commented, "@TeamTrump Did @realDonaldTrump miss his hair appointment? All that gray hair makes him look so old & worn out! Yikes!" Another user wrote, "Trump is letting his gray hair show because he wants to copy Biden’s hair. Hey Dishonest Don, it’s what is underneath his hair that matters. You have a negative IQ and want to nail Putin and your daughter. Worst president ever. Sad." "Did you notice his new gray hair today too...getting pretty desperate IMO," shared a user.

In March, Trump had cracked a joke about his hair blowing in the wind while giving a press conference about the coronavirus outbreak in the US. After he noticed a box blow away from in front of him, he said, "My hair’s blowing around and it’s mine."

Last year, Trump had garnered a lot of attention for his hair after sporting a slicked-back style. We had earlier reported that Trump made the unannounced visit to northern Virginia’s McLean Bible Church after spending four-and-a-half hours at his golf course in Sterling. Twitter users relentlessly mocked him for his hairdo. One such user had written, "Trump takes off his hat and somehow...his hair looks...normal? Which means the thing he normally does is like, a choice."

"On his way back from golf, Trump stops at McLean Bible Church to "pay respects" to victims of the Virginia Beach shooting. In respectful golf clothes, with respectful hat hair and again with the way too long respectful pants. Respect," another had written. "I can’t understand why he hasn’t been wearing his hair like that for the last 20 years. It looks... normal," a third Twitter user had commented. Others had commented saying that they could barely recognize him. 

Back in 2011, Trump had given an interview with Rolling Stone where he spoke to a reporter about his beauty regime, NY Post reveals. He had said, "OK, what I do is, wash it with Head and Shoulders. I don’t dry it, though. I let it dry by itself. It takes about an hour."
