The front-runner for the Republican ticket for next year's US elections Donald Trump settled once and for all the rampant speculation over his hair and proved in front of 1,400 people that, far from being a toupee, it is very "real."

Trump opened his election campaign speech in Greenville, South Carolina by reading aloud from a New York Times article about staunchly anti-Trump stories published by Hispanic media outlets.

He criticised the story's opening line, "Ricardo Sanchez, known as 'El Mandril' on his Spanish drive-time radio show in Los Angeles, has taken to calling Donald J Trump 'El hombre del peluquin' -- the man of the toupee."

Trump wanted to prove he did not, in fact, wear a toupee.

"It's my hair!" Trump exclaimed to the laughing crowd.

"I swear! Come here. Just come on up here. They're going to let you. You have to do an inspection, this is getting crazy."

He brought Mary Margaret Bannister, the South Carolina House Majority leader's wife, onstage and let her touch the most famous hairstyle in the 2016 presidential race.

The woman did as she was told and went to the microphone and said, "Yes, I believe it is."
