Why Obama dyed his hair black

By Daily Mail Reporter

It's being seen as the most important visit by a Chinese leader in 30 years and, with all the world's eyes on him, who can blame Barack Obama for wanting to look his best. For it appears that he has dyed his greying hair jet-black -- giving him a new more youthful look.

Observers have said the 49-year-old U.S. President's hair has changed colour dramatically because of the pressures of the job since he assumed office two years ago. On top of that, the four-day visit by 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.

The first picture was taken outside the Andrews Air Force Base, just outside Washington DC, as the President prepared to board Air Force One a week ago. Seven days later as he spoke at a state dinner for Hu Jintao in the White House, his hair was apparently significantly darker.

But if Obama is feeling under pressure, there was better news for him as it emerged his approval rating has surged to 53 per cent. Just a month ago he was languishing eight points lower -- and the rating is the highest since July 2009, according to the NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.
