Well, there ain't nothing wrong with the long-haired music like Brahms, Beethoven and Elvis.

Great photo. From a DeAgostini magazine.

But he did visit them in early 1970, right before this photo (also from DeAgostini) was taken. Jim was out, though. Elvis was disappointed. He needed more than "just tell him Jim said hello".

I disagree. I like it. Was this his way of rebelling against his movie years image? It would be nice to think so, but I don´t think so. He changed his hairstyle many times during the 60s. But maybe it had something to do with it. Who knows?

Rebellion, or laziness? That is the question.

Elvis lazy in 1970? No way, and you know it.

I think that was the whole point of guys not cutting their hair at the time. A guy has to make an extra effort to look a certain traditional way, and if they just didn't do it, well, there was the hair. And so they could "rebel" by just not doing something.

I guess. Anyway, I remember this song from WAY back!

Yes, that was the way men, especially in rock music, were wearing thier hair in 1970. But, I've always thought of Elvis as starting trends rather than following them. IMHO, a trip to the barber was in order. :wink:

Speaking of trips to the barber shop, what made Elvis grow his sideburns back? He had said in an early 1960s press conference that he didn't miss them (when a reporter asked him about missing his sideburns).

They had become fashionable.

When it came to Elvis's hair in the 70's he was following fashion instead of creating it. Shaggy hair and "mutton chops" became fashionable in the late 60's and Elvis followed the trend. If I remember hearing it right, Elvis showed up with pomade in his hair for "Change Of Habit" and the director told him to wash it out and wear his hair dry and shaggy and Elvis never went back to the pomade after that (or whatever hair cream he used).

That's incorrect. The story goes that he took Priscilla's advice to style his hair more along the lines of what Rick Nelson was doing. He showed up at Universal with the new hairstyle.

Yeah, that's how I heard it. Elvis still had the "greasy kid stuff" in his hair in the 68 comeback special and in the movies in 69 until Change Of Habit.

I like the long hair he had in the seventies except the bangs look from 1976.

Well, not really. Elvis' hair was just usually combed back on the top and sides. Just look at his appearance in late 1968-early 1969. What he did, just prior to reporting for "Change of Habit," was shift to a more relaxed, fall-forward style.
