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.

No, Elvis used to give his teeth to red and Charlie used to crap for him.

How interesting.

That would be the missing Mrs Hedy Mjorud, hairdresser - I love little details and solving. 8-)

Tis a mystery as to what went on, or IMBD are just plain wrong.

One of Elvis' relatives was very kind to say:
Jim's Barber Shop in Memphis 1956 just prior to heading to New York for the Ed Sullivan show

Fort Chaffee Arkansas March 1958 just before he was to start basic training for The Army

Well, it was still the rock'n'roll quiff hairdo in those films, the rebellious look.They may have cut his hair but I'm pretty sure he combed it himself after. I go to the Barbers, as most people do, and have a haircut but after i comb it myself until it needs cutting again.

But his 60s hair seems to be rather more polished and perfect with lots of hairspray which suggests it was done by the hair department before a scene was cut for a movie to make sure it was just perfect.

His hair in King Creole is quite messy, his quiff isn't in place it flops in front of his face in most scenes and looks like it hasn't been combed

In Loving You his hair is quite reminiscent of how he had it in 56, just a tad longer, except his hair is dyed black, iirc that was suggested by the hair department in Hollywood but Elvis liked the black hair look and kept it that way.

No wonder, paramount pleaded for the delay of elvis ' induction into the army with the army department, so they could make king creole.
Time was so tight, they didn't had the time to comb his hair.

except his hair is dyed black, iirc that was suggested by the hair department in Hollywood

I tend to believe it was elvis's idea as he himself said that most leading men who were successful had dark hair.
The makeover of his skin before loving you was also his idea.

Just bringing forth what is obvious by the photos - Elvis actually attended a barber's shop.

We have had the photo before, I know, but look what he is reading (if anyone has not noticed before)

Good stuff. Imagine, walking past, perhaps something catches your eye, you look inside, and there is Elvis.

Well said!

The guy had so much talent and creativity in him, most of which never saw the light of day. Such a shame.

Including, a good majority of interior design ideas (except for 1970's fashions ;) ).
