When Fox News White House correspondent John Roberts‘ coiffe turned up dark brown seemingly overnight in early 2017, people around him noticed.
With hair as a side beat for years, I went to work trying to find out what happened. I was not expecting a response. Most TV people would ignore a media reporter who asks, “What happened to John Roberts’ hair?”

At the time, Roberts replied pretty quickly, joking that his hairdresser had gone a little crazy with the hair dye. “This was my first time with a new stylist in a new city who got a little fast and loose with taking a bit of the grey out,” he said.
I can tell you that CNN’s Jim Acosta wouldn’t dream of responding to questions about the hue of his hair — even though, he has also tried washing the gray right out. In August, 2017, he pulled a Roberts and attempted to shed himself of his graying locks. Even his CNN coworkers had the reaction of ‘What the hell is he doing?’

Which brings me to one of my favorite pictures of the week — it’s John Roberts from 40 years ago. Which makes him 21-years-old at the time the picture was taken.
Just look at that feathered hair!
