Even his self styled perm in 55 was cooler than anything Larry was ever capable of...
I'm not too fond of that perm look, but my point was that he knew exactly how to comb his hair. He shouln't have allowed anybody touch it. Look at the fabulous (blond) haircut he was wearing when he returmed from Germany. It only lasted a couple of weeks, though. Oh well.
Yes, I knew what your point was and I agree with you. I don't mind the perm (it's 1955 even if his toes were coming through his shoes it would still be awesome, know what i mean) it was better than the "Hollywood haircut" which was plenty of hairspray and the all round family man that Hollywood wanted him to be.
"the image they had of me was wrong, I knew it"- Elvis Presley June 1972.
Well, I, for instance, liked the Hollywood haircut in loving you or king creole.
I think Elvis was still combing his own hair in those two movies. It wasn't til the 60s it became the "Hollywood haircut".
I would doubt that he was combing his own hair. The hairstyle supervisor on Loving You and King Creole was Nellie Hanley and the hairstylist was Hedy Mjorud on King Creole.
For the sake of continuity I don't think film stars comb their own hair.
They don't brush their own teeth or use the restroom either.
