Donald Trump’s wax figure has his own entourage and FULL TIME hairdresser on hand to set and blow his hair every day.

The 45th US president’s waxy doppelganger is expected to get through 30 cans of hairspray as well as requiring HOURLY hairdresser visits to ensure his luscious locks stay looking impeccable.

Keeping The Apprentice star looking presidential is a challenge for the team as visitors are encouraged to get up close and personal for snaps.

Each hair on a Madame Tussauds wax figure is inserted by hand and it takes a team of 20 talented sculptors, colourists and hair stylists several months to ensure that the whole figure is perfect.

General Manager, Matthew Titherington, said: “It’s great to have Trump in the attraction and we’ve been researching in depth to ensure our hairdresser uses he correct products to maintain his signature look.

“It was revealed by his doctor, Dr Bornstein, in the New York Times earlier this year that Trump himself takes Propecia to prevent hair loss and male pattern baldness, something which our figure won’t need to worry about.

“He’s a perfect snapshot of his appearance in 2017, the likeness is remarkable.”

The wax figure is seated behind an Oval office style desk with his phone in his hand as he tweets away. The attraction has also had to install additional queuing areas for visitors to cope with the popularity of the figure.
