How would we describe Elijah Mikaelson? As a gentleman. He is a dashing and debonair gentleman with the etiquette of a first class passenger aboard a luxury streamliner and the fearlessness of William Wallace charging into battle upon the back of a sleek steed. Oh — and he’s got a set of locks on him that make even curly-hair beauty, Katherine Pierce, green with envy. (Click here for a rundown on the evolution of his fashionable ‘dos.)
So what sort of hairstyles can we expect to see Elijah sporting in The Vampire Diaries Season 4 — especially with an exciting 11th century flashback episode to look forward to? Wigs…lots and lots of them! Here’s what Daniel Gillies dished to MTV News:
“I’ve had so many numerous haircuts on this thing. I feel like an accessory sometimes,” he joked. “I feel like the Potato Head-vampire. I think this was my fifth hairstyle? And as we venture further through history, we’re only going to find more absurdities upon my crown. The second to last one I had I adored, because I sort of looked somewhere between a Viking and an elf. This last one I looked like a roadie for the Grateful Dead in the 11th century.”
We cannot wait to see what trendsetting hairstyle Elijah will be stepping out in next! So tell us, are you obsessed with Elijah Mikaelson’s fabulous hair as much as we are? Fess up in the comments!
