The idea that image in America is everything just went global. Considering Obama just hosted China’s first welcoming party to the states in 13 years and presumably the most important in 30 years, the president had to look sharp since he’s on his own turf. Chinese President Hu Jintao is of particular importance for Obama as the world’s superpower comes to terms with the Far Eastern country’s growing influence on the world stage. By 2020 it is expected to overtake the U.S. as the world’s largest economy. Talk about pressure! It’s speculated that the strain of terms from his employment have dramatically effected his hair color.
We deal with stresses everyday and stress itself can have unusual effects on our bodies. So don’t feel bad the next time you find a grey hair. Even our 49-year old president has to deal with it too. Just remember if you don’t like it, we can fix it.
