    Elvis Hair Lock From Personal Barber Homer Gilleland (1970s). For some 20 years prior to Elvis' death, Homer Gilleland ("Mr. Gil of Memphis") was employed as The King's personal hairstylist. During that time, the small amounts of hair that Homer saved included some black, some brown, and shades in-between as Elvis changed his hair color periodically. The lock here is of black hair and accompanied by Homer's Air Travel Card International, showing both his name and that of his employer Elvis Presley, a copy of a letter from Gilleland to "Lee" about hair that he was providing; and a picture of Gilleland standing beside his early '70s-model Oldsmobile.
