Elvis Presley was a honey brown blonde, a bit darker than his father Vernon.

Elvis dyed his hair black for Hollywood – Loving You.

Elvis reported to MGM in Hollywood for the pre-production on Kissin’ Cousins. During the week he had script and choreography rehearsals. There were also wig fittings for his role as the blond twin.

Elvis Presley was was an all american baseball playing, army serving, movie and music making performer. He wore a wig for Jailhouse Rock for that onscreen haircut. He trimmed his sideburns for King Creole. He wouldn’t wear brown eye contacts for Flaming Star – but he wore a blonde wig for Kissin Cousins.
