Madame Tussauds unveils waxwork Trump - it's all about the hair

Donald Trump has appeared in London in the form of a wax figure ahead of his inauguration on Friday (US time). 

The spitting image is dressed in patriotic dark blue suit, signature red tie and a 'made in America' flag lapel pin, it's the end result of six months' work.

Mr Trump's famous mop was a labour of love and the team's greatest concern. His hair is a mixture of human hair and yak hair. For Mr Trump's eyebrows, the team used squirrel hair. 

"Creating the new US President is a tradition that we look forward to every election cycle, and we are proud to welcome such a lifelike figure to our attraction" says Therese Alvich, general manager of Madame Tussauds in Washington DC.
