Elvis Presley is well known for his iconic hairstyle, which began as a fifties quiff before evolving into the seventies style with sideburns from his jumpsuit era. But did you know that The King dyed his hair and he was actually a natural blonde? Well now Graceland have revealed the real reason Elvis kept his hair jet black.

During last week’s virtual Elvis Week, Graceland archivist Angie Marchese gave fans a virtual tour of the Memphis mansion.

At the base of the staircase in the entrance hall hangs a portrait of The King with his natural blonde hair.

Angie shared: “Elvis was born blonde-haired, blue-eyed. He dyed his hair black as he thought it brought out his facial features better on film.

“This picture was actually done in Texas when Elvis was in the army [in 1958].”
