My first thought was Gene Smith, too.

Does anyone have this photo in better quality?
Are there more to this set? Details would be nice.
Has it been taken by Alfred Wertheimer?
I love the 50s era, but I am just no good with dates.

... The first "cutting hair" publicity photo is on the set of Loving You,

with cousin Gene. The 2nd one is taken in Memphis, circa june/ july,

1956. There are about a dozen different ones, to be found in my

book: Memphis Lonesome. Phtographer: Lloyd Shearer. And this haircut

was a real one...

... At your service.

There are a couple more of these Melanie, seen 'em but don't have 'em,

do however, have a copy of the mag he's holding ..

Seen some text that stated it was durning a break of filming of Love Me Tender, know the mag was a '56 issue for Sure tho..

...and indeed it is Gene in the loving You shot...
