Elvis Presley’s ducktail hairstyle and famous sideburns were removed
as he received his first regulation short haircut from US Army barber
James Peterson. A clump of Elvis’ hair went up for bid in March, 2010 
at a Chicago auction house, selling for $15,000.

The former Army building at Fort Chaffee, Ark., where Elvis got  the
haircut, could be designated as an historical landmark.
