A student of mine asked me how a German might say combover. It's that interesting hair style when someone is bald, but they have hair on one side of their head, and comb it over to the other side. It blows away in the wind.
I usually pride myself on my knowledge of bizarre and varied German vocab, but I couldn’t help him on this occasion.
I’ve asked a couple of my German friends, who say there’s no such expression … Can anyone out there help me?
