Zac Efron had his hair crimped at summer camp

As an eighth-grader, Zac Efron used to let the older girls at summer acting camp crimp his hair.

The evidence of this was revealed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon when Fallon pulled out a photo of a young Efron with his hair crimped.

Efron said he was one of the youngest campers at the camp – CSUN, which stands for Cal State University Northridge – and let the older girls crimp his hair.

“Do you think you could still pull this style off?” Fallon asked, moments before pulling out a wig.

One of those older girls at the camp was 2 Broke Girls star Beth Behr, who was asked about going to camp with Efron on a recent episode of Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.

Behr said she remembered him learning how to “freak dance” and that he had at least a three or four-pack even at 13.
