Social media users make fun of Francois Hollande's expensive haircut

People have just found out the French President's personal hairdresser earns 10 000 Euros... a month. Their reaction has been to poke fun at his rather regular hairstyle and share pictures of him in more extravagant haircuts.
We've speaking to 'hair historian' Sean Williams who's Vice-Chancellor's Fellow at the School of Languages and Cultures at the University of Sheffield in the UK. He draws comparisons across centuries between Mr Hollande, Donald Trump and, of course, Marie Antoinette.
