Prison wouldn't mean end of hairdo for Rod Blagojevich

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (By Kurt Erickson, Lee Newspapers) - Rod Blagojevich may have to give up his freedom, but it appears he won't have to give up his swooping trademark hairdo.

Although it could be months, if not years, before the convicted former governor sets foot inside a federal prison, his famed helmet of hair would not be in jeopardy once he's behind bars — unless he forgets to wash it.

"There will be no restriction of hair length as long as it is neat and clean," according to an inmate manual for the federal Bureau of Prisons.
