Re: Spock Prime's Hair (Spoilers)

Could it just be the lighting? As Trek fans, we all know that lighting can change things.

Yes I'm not convinced by the hazy transmission.
Still it does look blacker.
Call me shallow but I prefer his hair less grey.

Sorry to go off topic but I didn't like Uhura's hair in STV and preferred the 'blacker' hair in STVI.

Yet I thought Pike Greenwood looked dashing with his grey hair.

Maybe I'm used to seeing Uhura and Spock in their younger days.

Meh. I've discussed more trivial stuff over my years here. Talking about Spock's pubic hair, now that would be something.

Agreed... that transmission makes it difficult to make out details. I'll take a closer look on Sept 10 when I can get me some bluray goodness on a 60 inch screen!

Re: Spock Prime's Hair (Spoilers)

In the pic I posted old Spock's hair looks darker, but overall he looks younger anyway. Nimoy may have dyed his hair, or it may just be how his natural color looks when cut and sprayed down.

The main reason I think it's his real hair is the flat spot just over the center of his forehead. If you look at some of the TOS episodes, his hair has the reflection that follows the curve of the bangs, but about half an inch above. In several shots there is the flat spot that does not follow that curve. That's what I saw in the screenshot from the new movie.

Also, look at the cut of the hair at the temples and around the ear. It looks to me like natural hair, and not the type of wig that he wore in the 09 film. When that movie was shot, he was wearing his hair much shorter, almost a crew cut. In candid photos from 2012-13 his hair is much longer. Look at the Audi ad. It's not at all unreasonable for me to think that he let his hair grow out so he wouldn't have to wear the wig.

I could be wrong, but that's what it looks like to me.

Re: Spock Prime's Hair (Spoilers)

In Star Trek 3, his hair should look just like cooleddie's avatar. No explanation should be given.

Vulcan men shave,
Or maybe only evil Vulcans are capable of growing facial hair?

Tuvok was seen shaving in Year of Hell, if I remember correctly.

I'm not convinced as I don't think "Year of Hell" really happened.
It was another VOY episode where they cheated by using time travel.

If Kirk had 17 temporal violations, I wondered how many Janeway had?

How does time travel change anything about the idea that Vulcans need to shave?
Even if Year of Hell didn't happen, Tuvok still needed to shave.

Just my weird attempt at humour

Technically, I don't think he needed to shave. I didn't even see any stubble! Maybe he was exfoliating his face...with a razor.

Exactly, there didn't seem to be any facial hair. Maybe Vulcans just like to run a blade across their face.

And even if he were shaving, why was he using a cutthroat blade anyway?
