Spock Prime's Hair (Spoilers)
 
In the first film Spock Primes' hair is grey and matches his aged appearance, but in Into Darkness when Spock contacts him his hair is pitch black and youthful looking. Has there been an explanation for this rather odd change in appearance?

The only thing I can think of is that the first film focused a lot on the point that Spock Prime was an older version of Spock from another timeline. Since Into Darkness doesn't go into this in detail I can only assume that they tried to make Spock Prime try to resemble the younger Spock as much as possible.

Either that or Spock Prime decided to dye his hair for some reason. Anyone have any ideas?

You've gotta look your best when you're repopulating the species:D


I wonder if maybe what we saw in Into Darkness was Nimoy's real hair (which is that colour still!), or perhaps even CGI.

A side effect of Spock's "pon farr enabler". He's hot 24/7 now. Repopulating the species.

In 09 it was obviously a wig, not much better than the incredibly bad ones from the TNG era. Nimoy's real hair color isn't as completely gray as that wig was.

In this pic it's either a very good wig, or Nimoy's real hair. I'm guessing it's real.

Well whatever their reason for the change it just looks strange to me after seeing him with the grey hair in the first movie.

I don't understand why they would change his hair colour from this...

Comparing that to photos of Leonard from 2012 and 2013, I'd say it's almost definitely not his real hair as Spock.

I'm going to have to say... wig, lol, still clueless as to why they changed the colour from grey to black tho.

The real world reason is because Nimoy himself is dyeing his hair these days and wasn't in 2009.

Two words: metaphasic radiation.

Two words: hair dye.

Why not? Vulcans obviously care about their appearance. Vulcan men shave, and women wear make-up. Hair dye is not different.

how cool...we are talking of spock's hair, LOL.

I think the make up people from Into Darkness just forgot about his grey hair from the 09 film, after all it was a 4 year gap. people forget things.

Speaking of hair, did anyone hate Uhura's awful Mohawk. why put that ugly hairstyle on a pretty girl.

Mohawk? A shaved head with a strip of hair in the middle?:confused:

It's nothing like a Mohawk. It's not even like a fauxhawk. If you want to argue that it was, then don't hijack someone else's topic; start your own thread - with pictures. Or write it in your blog - with pictures.

In this thread: back to the topic of Spock's hair.
