Portraits of Priscilla Presley With Her Very Big Hair From the 1960s

High, black and tumbling down – Priscilla Presley rocked one of the biggest bouffants we’ve seen.

Hailed as the Queen of Rock and Roll — Elvis was her husband, after all! — the beautiful and enigmatic Priscilla Presley left her indelible mark on the American cultural landscape throughout the 1960s and ’70s.

With her signature babydoll eyeliner, massive bouffant ‘do and ultra-glamorous take on Mod fashion, Priscilla’s signature look is at once completely singular, yet emblematic of the era’s decadent rock-and-roll-meets-Hollywood lifestyle. In fact, Priscilla’s instantly-recognizable 1960s look is so iconic that it continues to show its influence on today’s pop culture, think Lana Del Rey’s LA-glam look — flicked eyeliner and perennially “done” hair — and myriad lyrical references to the King of Rock and Roll, himself.

Beyond Priscilla’s role as rock-star-wife, she’s also gone on to pursue a string of business ventures — including launching her own fashion line — and a career in acting, that saw her signature 1960s look transform with the times.


  1. Unless I'm really off the mark, the first picture isn't Priscilla Presley. It looks to be a high fashion model from the 1960s. Of course, I could be wrong.

    1. You're absolutely right, definitely NOT Priscilla.
