In Pfaffstaetten, Austria, store owner Manuela Plank has taken “emergency measures” to meet the wig demands.

She has made the wigs using the regular blonde ones that she then coats with a generous amount of hairspray. From there, she molds the toupee into Trump’s signature coiffure.

Plank told the Associated Press that the popularity of Trump’s look is because is due simply to his own popularity worldwide, "and because everybody knows him and his hairstyle is very distinctive."

She added that the wigs “take a lot of time” because “you have to do a lot of back-coming. But you can get it done.”

The town in the south of Austria has just 3,500 people and Carnival runs until early March, which is why she is stepping up production on blonde wigs for Trump costumes.

Initially, Plank thought she was prepared for the Carnival season because she had 10 wigs in stock, but was forced to make more after the inquiries kept coming.
