It’s no secret that this has been a rough presidency for Barack Obama and he has the gray hair to prove it. Recent before-and-after photos published by outlets including England’s Daily Mail online, Gawker and a number of print tabloids apparently illustrate a recent pronounced darkening of the president’s coif.
Many have cataloged the before-and-after appearances of presidents past, and Obama and his staff have readily admitted he’s no different.
“Change is hard,” Obama told the Urban League last summer. “I don’t know if you’ve noticed. That’s why I’ve got all this gray hair.”
Well… not anymore!

Although many have admitted that some photos of the president are altered, it appears that Obama has been covering his gray hair… and understandably so! Everyone is entitled to upholding their youthful appearance. Even if that means buying a bottle of “Just for Men” every now and then.
White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs was even asked to weigh in on the state of the presidential hair during a White House press briefing, stating:
“I can’t imagine that the weight of the job doesn’t take a toll physically and mentally on anybody that does it,” Gibbs said, adding, “I know he greatly enjoys it, and it will just require him to get more frequent haircuts.”
Yeah… I would think keepin a low temp fade would prevent the gray from showing… I guess.
Whatever the case, we still have one handsome president. Gray or no gray…
