Known for playing the quintessential cowboy, Sam Elliott has rewarded movie goers for years with his incredible hair.
Sam Elliott in "Frogs"
Sam destroys an evil hoard of frogs by unleashing his awesome 70's hair. The mustache is still only a twinkle in Sam's eye.
Sam Elliott in "Lifeguard"
In his first big role, Sam breaks out an awesome feathered do. The bushy stache is in full effect, and he also has impressive chest hair. Anne Archer falls immediately in love with him, but when she finds out he is already dating Katharine Ross, she goes crazy and joins the Church of Scientology to help her find meaning in life.
Sam Elliott in "Mask"
Sam darkens and grows out his hair, and effectively portrays a sleazy biker with a heart of gold in this flick. Biker chicks and people with horribly disfigured heads everywhere melt at the kindness he shows to Rocky Dennis. Sam's hair is so super, it distracts Peter Bogdonovich so much that he forgets how to make movies.
Sam Elliott in "Road House"
Sam absolutely steals the film as bouncer Wade Garrett, who kicks ass and spouts off great one-liners while mentoring Patrick Swayze. This film is filled with tension, as Sam's salt and pepper locks and Swayze's mullet participate in an unspoken battle to see who is best. The winner is us. Sam Elliott really has some of the best looking salt and pepper hair you could ever want.
Sam Elliott in "Hulk"
Sam blows everybody away by going with the grey buzz cut. Simply fantastic. A completely different look from "Lifeguard", but he looks cool in both. I know I've said it already, but he might have the best mustache in Hollywood. Really deserves its own thread at some point.
Sam Elliott in "Ghost Rider"
This flick hasn't been released yet, but Sam grew out the length for this. Its amazing how versatile he is...he goes from short to long, stache to no stache, seemingly at will. I'm pretty sure Sam Elliott can grow his full mustache in 3 hours. It has regenerative powers like Wolverine.
Congratulations to Sam Elliott...#3 on my list of greatest Hollywood hair.
