    Does ELVIS influence how you look or dress?

    Just wondering here, if anyone on here, has been influenced by elvis by what clothes they wear, hair style or anything like that, ?????

    Im in my young 20's and i TRY (it does not always work ) and have elvis hair. Its quite cool in my opinion, as most people my age have shaved heads etc, sometimes i get the "hey Elvis" comments, but hey i dont mind as elvis was the most handsome man ever in my opinion, and i now have one friend who has grown his hair and sideburns because he thinks its cool,

    embarrisingly, a photo of me.. and my hair, lol

    I'm always begging my grandmother to make me more jumpsuits, and I do wear my collar up every day, for the "high collar" effect.

    I use to dress like Elvis (Elvis from the 50's) when I was in high school,
    even though it was like 1988 and I use to get laughed at. I was never
    able to get the sideburns right

    I used to dress my son with dark pants and a nice shirt (or jumper), when I had a lot to do with what he wore, lol.

    I got the 1972 Elvis hair. The girlfriend and the rest of the ladies dig it so its all right with me. I also pop my collar on my coats. Oh and one more thing I wear dress shirts, dress pants and boots. (Yes Elvis boots). I swear to God I think everybody in my school copied my style with the boots. My first day at the University (Sept 2007) I saw no one wearing boots and dressy clothes but me, then as time went by everyone started to wear boots and dress fancy. ****ing copycats. LOL

    I can't really say that he does. As a matter of fact, I dress the complete opposite.

    I would say yes-I like to wear boots like he wore in the 50s and 60s.
    I like high collars, also I like colorful clothes which stand out.
    As I have got older-its just not as easy to wear these type clothes and only in my offtime on special occasions.

    He never has influenced my looks, style or opinions and never will. He only influences me through the music

    I shampoo it with that shampoo with the horse on it, blow dry, then wet it again and comb it back and I swear it just falls into place. Then I use hair spray.

    Good lord I sound like a fruit giving out hair styling advice. LMFAO
