Dan had been sporting a very particular look ever since the seventh grade. His slicked-back hair was complemented by a leather jacket, completing the 1950s greaser style he wore for decades — until his wife, Jane, signed him up for a much-needed makeover.
The couple went on The Oprah Winfrey Show to see what supermodel Tyra Banks could do to help Dan out. It was then that the greaser husband revealed his personal hair routine and spilled the secrets behind his signature look.
In the video below, from 1999, Dan explains, “I put Vaseline, petroleum jelly, in my hands, and water, and I slick the hair back,” adding, “I love the ’50s! Elvis Presley, Bill Haley & [His] Comets — and I saw these guys on television.
I saw their hair slicked back like that, I said, ‘Man, that is cool!'”
Dan confesses that his hair takes 30 or 40 minutes to do and shows off his collection of hair sprays — unscented, extra-hold only.
He even demonstrates how to achieve his slick, hard-as-a-rock dome!
Then, Tyra takes the ’50s greaser husband to receive a makeover on TV. When he walks out for the big reveal, he is simply unrecognizable.
