How much would you pay to have a hairstyle like French President François Hollande? $15? Maybe $20? Well, if you're a French taxpayer, the bill for your president's haircut is more than $130,000 per year.
A French satirical magazine revealed that Hollande's personal barber, referred to as Olivier B., has a salary of 9,895 euros per month. That's nearly $11,000 in America, and a really bad deal worldwide.
Olivier's lawyer tried to justify the exorbitant salary by telling France 24 that he must be "available for the president 24/7," cutting Hollande's hair every morning and before each speech.
