Barber: Blagojevich’s Hair To Turn Gray In Prison

CHICAGO (AP) — Rod Blagojevich’s barber says the former Illinois governor’s famously thick, dark hair is dyed and will turn gray within the first months of his prison term.

Peter Vodovoz has been Blagojevich’s barber for more than two decades. Vodovoz said Wednesday that the 55-year-old Blagojevich has dyed his hair for years.

Blagojevich reported to a Colorado federal prison last week to begin serving a 14-year sentence for corruption. A spokesman for the prison says hair dye is banned because inmates could use it to change their appearances in escape attempts.

Vodovoz says Blagojevich’s dark-brown dye will fade quickly and could be as gray as talk-show host Jay Leno’s hair within three months.

When he was governor, Blagojevich was so obsessive about his hair he had a security official carry a brush.
