Re: What's Roddenberry's problem with HAIR?

Futuristic hair cuts eh? The people who think TOS is too cheesy would have had a field day with that. Any idea what he wanted them to look like?
I've never seen any sketches, so maybe it never went any further than Roddenberry floating the idea. The actors objected because they would have had to wear weird haircuts in their everyday life. Spock's haircut probably gives us a clue of what he had in mind; Leonard was wearing it in game show appearances at the time, though not as heavily lacquered.
