London: A former classmate of `High School Musical` star Zac Efron has said the actor used to ask girls to braid his hair in a bid to get closer to them.
The 22-year-old actor, who has been dating actress Vanessa Hudgens since 2005, used to befriend his female classmates by letting them fiddle with his locks when he was a teenager, a news website reported.
Lana Limon, who studied with Zac at the California State Summer School for the Arts, said, "I braided his hair one day, and he left it in for a long time. And then we finally took it out and it was all greasy and crimped. It was just for fun."
"He ended up drawing huge lips of one page of my scrapbook with his name inside and his phone number," she added.
