You’ll be surprised at the absurd things people do for love. Well, this is the case of 54-year-old man, Wu Lei, who styled his hair into a perfectly right-angled flat top to make himself look younger so as to impress a woman he likes.
Apparently Wu Lei from Taiwan wanted to try and look like someone in their 20s or 30s to try and gain the affections of the 23-year-old lady.
When asked about the hairdo by a Chinese reporter, he said he had wanted to impress the lady whom he had tried to chat up, but she had rejected his advances.
Wu, who is still single despite the expensive hairdo, said: “I can’t understand it. I make an attractive monthly income of 70,000 Taiwanese Dollars (N350,000).
“I adopted this hairstyle because I wanted to look like a guy in his 20s or 30s to attract the girl who rejected me. Or in fact any girl.”
Styling his hair was not an easy task. He reportedly needs to use up two cans of gel and spends two hours doing his hair. He can also only comb it once every 15 days to get rid of dead hair.
She said: “My friends call him blockhead, I can imagine he might have found someone as he had a good and respectable job as a medical laboratory scientist at the National Taiwan University Hospital. But he should act his age.”
Although he did not get the woman he was trying to impress, the hairdo and media coverage on the other hand has made Wu a local celebrity with people taking photos of him on the streets.
