According to a financial report filed with the Federal Election Commission, the Democrat’s campaign committee paid for Edwards to have his hair cut by celebrity stylist Joseph Torrenueva of Beverly Hills.

The cost of each haircut was $400.

As Salon reports, Torrenueva, normally charges $150 for men. But he charged extra for the inconvenience of meeting Edwards at another location. (Other stylists at the same salon charge as little as $60 or $75 for a cut.)

“I do cut his hair and I have cut it for quite a while,” Torrenueva says. ”We’ve been friends a long time.”

In “We consider hair design a fine art!” spa-goers are told:
Whether it’s maintaining your current style or taking a bold step onto the cutting edge of fashion, you can rest assured in knowing your stylist is your personal partner helping to create or enhance your unique individual style.

Once you’ve agreed on the hair style and before the precision cut begins, you’ll be treated to an aromatic stress relieving scalp massage, and a luxurious shampoo scalp massage to help you relax, unwind and enjoy the journey. To top it off, ask for a quick cosmetic touch-up…an application of the season’s new shade of lipstick and blush will allow you to greet the world with renewed anticipation.”

Nothing wrong with this. Men vote, women vote. Men who want to behave like women vote. Chauvenists vote.

And Edwards is up against Hillary Clinton, a woman who may care to tap Edwards for grooming tips.
