I think that if a man is asking himself that question, he needs to do what is right for himself. If he tries dying it and doesn't like the bother of the proceedure, he doesn't have to do it again.

I couldn't care less whether he dyes his hair or not.

I will surely be struck down for my next comment

I evily chuckle about the fact that I don't have a grey hair on my head. My past my waist hair is a thing I love to have. Decided several years ago, way before it became a style (did I start it ), that I wanted my multi shades of brunette hair to be high-lighted with lots of red and blonde.

Off I went to my hairdresser. Told her that I had always admired tri coloured dog breeds, and I wanted the look for myself. (My poor patient hairdresser humours me every 6 or 8 weeks. Pains takingly matching the new growth to the already tri coloured locks.) I have even had Latin hairdresser's admire my hair colours. Ah, no ego in this lady

I figure for my sin of enjoying the fact that I have got this old without grey hair, I will wake up one morning totally white. With my sense of humour, I am sure I would laugh cause I know I would deserve it.

Awh, Scott! It was sweet of you to color your hair gray for me!

Well my new sweetie colors his beard and mustache and presently he is leaving it alone for me because I think he is sexy as hell with the grey. But he's sexy to me anyway no matter what color his hair is. Oh NO.. wait.. he would NOT make a good blonde!!!

I like the gray. When it's well kept it's a sign of dignity and experience. Plus it's more truthful than coloring :)

I think it should be left up to the guy, if he wants to kind of blend the gray, or if he feels that ageism could be a factor in his workplace, he certainly has my blessing! As long as it is well done and he doesn't make radical color changes,or wind up with a haircolor that is CLEARLY not found in nature.
It often happens that men's facial hair will gray or even be somewhat a different color( my Dad had dark blond hair and the one time in his life he tried growing a beard it came in RED!),
if head hair and face hair seem to be on different pages as far as color/graying and the guy wants to use something to balnce that out, it's fine with me,as long as it doesn't stink or rub off LOL!( or run, if he gets caught in the rain!)
If he is comfortable with the gray, then that's all good, too!

Its salt and peper for me....the only way to go...cause its me. Some of my friends dye their hair and it really just does look right. So I will take what God gave me and just have fun with it.

As an emerging member of the greying panthers, I hear you. Feel fortunate mine is not going anywhere, just changing teams.

It's very gender based, IMO. Women with a bad dye job are somehow eccentric, men are just sad.

Someone help me remember the movie where the sweating man had dye running down his face.

Opinions on the tuft of grey on men or women? Despite often being from a physical or emotional trauma, I find it attractive.

Myself, ...... NO WAY would I EVER use chemical poisons on any part of my body.


I like that in a woman. As it happens, I also find gray hair on a woman to be very attractive. I prefer a woman who is confident enough in herself not to need to cover the gray.

I have done it in the past... Dont bother me as much as when it first started turning gray. What bothered me was the first time i saw some gray down south. Do they make a product called "Just for balls"


man, good thing I wasn't drinking anything....

I think grey hair is sexy as hell......and the reason why? A masterful man, of course....

Maybe if certain men coloured their hair, the next thing they do might be to post a picture?

ron9, too funny! fyi most blondish, reddish haired men have similar color coordinated issues. just do your thing, whatever it is. i assume women must have the same issues.

my ex who was younger than me, looked very washed out as he turned grey. i encouraged him to dye his hair a bit, to have a better chance at getting a job. like it or not, there is age discrimination in the workplace. he also looked less tired. one time he did try to save money, doing it himself and it looked awful. most hair shops will do men with a bit of color mixed into the grey. they are doing that for women now as well.

some men and some women look better gray than others.

Some men should and some men shouldnt. Gray actually makes some people look older and washed out and can make your undereye color appear darker. Seems like a trend now is to go bald , wont see any gray or any hair

Definitely don't color your hair, guys! I think gray hair is a huge turn-on

Ya can't dye away bald...
but as long as I have hair, it can be any color I want it to be.

I did dye my hair when I was dating a woman 18 years younger than me, and it did make me look 10-15 years younger; but I'm at the point now, that even looking 15 years younger, I'd still look like an old guy...

Absolutely not! Be happy with who you are, at whatever stage.
It looks so phony, especially on an older man and for some reason they always seem to pick a very dark color which looks even worse.

I like gray or white hair on a guy, but then again, if I liked dyed hair, I would color mine.

No, I think it looks silly on men close up. Besides, culturally you guys don't need to do this. The process that most women go through--including myself--is mulitple colors to create a natural looks. I might not be doing this myself if I was like my mom, a beautiful "salt n pepper" at a young age. Instead, I would just look "mousy".
