Howard started off the show saying his hair was changing in a way his hairdresser Toni calls “hormonal.” Howard added that so far he’s been blessed with good hair – but now the entire back of his head has lost its curl: “It’s stick-straight hair. Toni has to take a curling iron to it.” She has even suggested that Howard perm the affected area, but Howard refused, even balking at the idea of Beth doing it in private: “To quote [the Iron Sheik], that is gay, and faggot.” Howard claimed his hair issue extended to the nearly 5,000 photos taken at his wedding, which he and Beth have split into three categories: pictures to blow-up/frame (only 7), pictures to send people and pictures for the wedding album. Howard said the process was excruciating: “I don’t like the way I’m aging. I don’t like the way I look…when I look at myself in the mirror, I kind of look handsome. And then I look at these pictures and I don’t look anything like that.”
