His strip shirt casual look, the printed Hawaaiin Shirt, the Jailhouse Rock look or the badazzeled jumpsuits all were a rage back then and so are now. But do you know about The famous Elvis Presley Hairdo?
One most particular trend he introduced to the world was the Elvis Presley Hairdo.
Also called THE POMPADOUR:
The typical Elvis Hairdo with puffy hair at the top and crisp sides, it got the name Pompadour.
This hairstyle was actually inspired from Madame Pompadour, the mistress of King Louis XV from the 18th centuary. The hairdo complimented the superstars edgy face and soon became a fashion rage all over.
He also introduced the blond and the jet black hairstyle. He coloured his hair blond for a movie where he played a double role and also sported the jet black hairdo. His jet black ducktail hairstyle was also inspired by Tony Curtis.
