RE: Hair Dye

I noticed on more recent episodes of Deal Or No Deal, that he has a mahohany beard, which looks plain weird.

RE: Hair Dye

If it bothers you just shave it all off! Smile

I've been shaving mine since I was 16 and didn't realise how grey (well white, to be truthful) i'd gone till a couple of months ago when I let grow for a couple of weeks due to my clippers going bang and not getting round to replacing them.

That is a good idea.  I normally have a grade three all over, but let it grow quite long.  With the summer now here I may go for a grade 2 and have it done every couple of weeks.

So hair cutting for you is like music exams.....I hope you passed Grade 3 (Grade 2 should be easier).   Wink

RE: Hair Dye

I'm sure I noticed recently that hair dye is not a particularly healthy thing to put on/into the body.

So you will look sad and then die of something avoidable.

RE: Hair Dye

Strong claims here of death by hair dye!

I fall squarely into the blokes that dye their hair look stupid camp.

Honestly Gel, let it be. That's been my attitude the last few years. I tell myself I'm looking increasingly worldly and distinguished...

Is that also known as a George Lucas (style)? Or were you describing a vaguely creosote colour?

RE: Hair Dye

Also worth mentioning that IME women are far more partial to 'silver foxes' than tragic 'Just for Men' obvious dye-jobs.... 

 

Mistake lot of men (and women) make when dying their hair to cover grey is of trying to make it the same colour as when they were younger. But with age people typically lose pigmentation (see also grey hair), so dyed hair can look artificially dark against paler skin/lighter eyes.

Demise of a Hairdresser  - Curls up and dyes

Whereas a Sculptor  - Makes faces and busts.

There you have it Gel, most women can spot a dye-job at 50 paces.

None of us are helped by a media propogated myth that life is over after 28. At this point, we're expected to begin a 50 year period of denial, during which we continually dress and talk as teenagers (the adult hoodie is a must own item). I blame Michael J. Fox. And thirty-somethings starring in an endless slew of teen TV dramas. Oh, and Clarkson, Hammond, et al.
