Edwards Embarrassed About $400 Haircuts

Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards says he is embarrassed about his much-discussed $400 haircut.

Campaign records show the Edwards campaign paid a Beverly Hills stylist $400 to cut the candidate's hair. Edwards said the high-dollar cuts were a simple product of being on the run and ordering up services at the drop of a hat.

"I knew it would be expensive. I didn't know it would be that expensive to have him come over," Edwards told The Associated Press in an interview Friday. "The cost was ridiculous."

The cost of Edwards' haircuts has taken attention away from his plans for revitalizing rural America, which he hoped would dominate his latest campaign swing through Iowa.
