A little over animated, and easily side tracked, but seems likable.
But a terrible stylist.
If you look at Elvis' hair when he was with Larry, then after Larry left,
and then back when Larry came back you will see what I mean.
for example if Larry was with him during the 68 special, his hair would have looked like what it looked like in Spinout.
He took away the Elvis look, and replaced it with this poofy foofy style.
Larry is a good guy, he is generous to strangers, too. Do you think that the haircuts could have been following or creating, fashion, and that is why?
In my view, Patti Parry, styled Elvis' hair the best.
Elvis had the classic Elvis look in the 50's.
Army cut last part of 50s' .
then if you look at his cut in the early movies, it was still good
up to around 1964, then it changed.
Look at his cut from Paradise haw. style, Spinout, easy come easy go, Frankie and Johnny, and others in the 1965-1967 time period.
It was no longer the classic Elvis style, poofy. laquered. It didn't look right.
but then the 68 special comes along, and movies like Live a little love a little, he
had the cut that was the best for him.
Not sure the year larry got fired then rehired, but you can sort of tell by the haircuts Elvis was getting.
Look at those mid 1975 concerts, and it was back to that poofy look again, which he used for the 77 special too.
I know Larry was there for that.
MY opinion, whoever who was doing Elvis' hair before and after Larry, did a better job.
And Elvis didn't need to follow trends or anything like that, he created the trends.
but in the end, Elvis could have good records with a bad haircut. Or the other way around.
Just stating an observation. Not a fan of the poofy look.
Larry wasn't in the picture back until 1976.
So the hairstyle in 1975 was done by somebody else.
