Just for Men

What do you guys think of hair color for men? Ay yi yi, I usually hate it. It always looks so FAKE. So FLAT. So ONE-DIMENSIONAL! It looks like hair by Sharpie!

just for men color

A friend of mine is a fifty-something year old attractive gay male. He is a cutie. Well, he USED TO BE a cutie. Kind of like a cross between George Clooney and Benicio Del Toro with his salt and pepper hair. And then he went and colored his hair a horrid jet black. After the dye job his hair has become reminiscent of Wayne Newton's awful coiff:

Bleh!  The only thing worse than this look is when a man dyes both his hair AND HIS BEARD!  Foul!  Awful!

Men, don't DO THIS! There is nothing wrong with salt and pepper hair on a man! Or baldness! Anything is better than the shoe polish/sharpie/fake hair look [okay, a toupee is possibly worse]!  YIKES! TRUST ME! It does NOT make you look younger!

STILL don't believe me? Then just look at these before and after shots!  Where do you think their careers would be if they dyed their own hair with that cheap stuff? The HORROR!

Brandi said...

Just say no to hair dye!!! Salt and pepper hair is very sexy on men

Morgan said...

So never really thought about it but you're right.. looks kind of awful on men!

Dancing Branflake said...

Ha! I am so glad my man is bald. We will never have to deal with gray hairs!

Farah said...

I totally agrees! I love me some salt and pepper! ;)

hi! billy mays here...oh i can't go on, it's just too sad, RIP billy mays, you are now in Heaven where everything is oxi-clean-white

besswess said...

As usual, you make me laugh my ass off.
Why in the heck did you let your friend do that?

Becca said...

Baha!

girlunwinding said...

Well, to be fair Jet Black on an older woman looks quite scary as well.
I use to get pissed that Men's hair color could be put on and done in like 7 minutes and women had to sit around choking back toxic fumes for 30 minutes! hello, what kind of hair do men have that take to the dye better? evil cosmetic companies. ( now they have a 10 minute job for impatient females like myself)
AND I never realized "oxi clean man" so resembled BLUTO!!!!!

I love the idea of strangers with bad dye jobs, but it's because I have few joys right now and it makes me giggle.

it's so wrong that gray guys look hot and most gray women do not. (of course there are exceptions like emmylou harris)

Isabel said...

haha george clooney is so much hotter in the before pic!

C.B. said...

Bwahahaha! I love your MS Paint dye job! There's nothing wrong with salt and pepper as long as the style is flattering and the hair is healthy.

Brooke said...

Hahahahaha....You are quite the artist!

Haute World said...

I think black hair dye looks pretty awful on both men and women - it's one of those colors that will never look natural for some reason. Have you ever noticed that certain rock stars in the industrial/goth/rock genre will dye their hair an unnatural black as well, to appear more badass. Love your paint job skills by the way! LOL - they look like gorillas ;-)

L.A. Daze said...

Hahahahahaha! Love what you did with the 'after' shots.

Christina In Wonderland said...

You are a genius at photo-shopping my dear. Very believable.

But seriously, on the hair dye note, my Dad used to use men hair color, but it never worked for him, just made him look weird, so he actually swapped over to using women's hair dye. I pick on him for it, because he acts a little "effeminate" anyway.

Phoenix said...

I would also take it one step further and say that women don't have to dye their hair either... after all, if men can have gray hair, why can't women?

PS George Clooney is still hot as hell.

PPS When you drew on Benicio Del Toro he sort of looked like a terrorist.

Kitty Stampede said...

SO true!!! a man does look damn good with the salt & pepps. I never really thought about this before but you're right, it just looks so WRONG!

SabinePsynopsis said...

No no no! This is so wrong! Has no one told them that you can see every wrinkle a hundred times more with dark hair (plus it looks totally unnatural). Grey is a blessing, I say!

georgia~gigi said...

I am with you, salt and pepper is the way to go!

anotherfishinthesea said...

Hahahaha your dyed creations cracked me up! My husband and I were just talking about the hilariousity of "touch of grey" today.... nice.

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

Totally hot- not.

Kathryn said...

LOL - only thing worse it the "spray on hair" on the scalp - like spray painting an obvious comb-over would fool anyone.

On second thought, one thing worse is a very obvious bad toupee. My son's orthodontist had a very obvious "rug" as he never bothered to use anything to secure it in the front like spirit gum (or dang, at least some rubber cement) and there was nearly a 1/2 inch gap between the "hair" and the "scalp". As what I paid for the braces was twice what my last car was, I am sure he could have been able to afford something a little more natural. Hell, a fake dreadlock cap from Spencer Gifts would have looked more natural.

Had he not been the only orthodontist available on the sucky dental insurance plan I paid a fortune for, I would have been happy to share that observation with him because he was a total jerk.

Caroline said...

LOL...I love the colored in Benicio!

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

benicio looks like he's wearing a full frontal Turbini.

diane said...

Drolly, this post is genius and should go down in the history/hallmark of great blogging posts. Finishing up the commentary by actually "penning" in the photos of George Clooney and Benicio del Toro was the perfect touch. Bravo!
btw, I think Feria is a good choice. That's what I use, and people always compliment me on my long "virgin" hair, haha.

bananas. said...

bahahaha!!! clooney looks like spartan! LOL!

just for men is a joke. it's totally like a toupee...everyone knows you're using it.

but don't diss giants pitcher brian wilson because he's awesome. he does it more for show :)

十十f十 said...

lol. i stopped dyeing and plucking out my whites. doing the salt and pepper. let it snow!

Couture Carrie said...

I totally agree, darling!

Martina Rosenberg said...

I hate dyed hair. On men.

Look at that Berlusconi guy... must I say more ???
But - that one would even look awful with a paper bag on his head.

Pretty Little World said...

I don't mind gray hair on men at all - it always looks distinguished and usually sexy.

thelayeredpancake said...

i was going to type some sort of something, but then i saw george clooney and i momentarily fainted and i dont remember what i was going to say.

Heff said...

Lol. I think you kinda have to "layer" the color to make it lok realistic.

Sadly, I may be trying this shit soon.

Adiya said...

Why can't men see that hair dye just looks plain weird! It never looks real. I think guys generally grow old very well- they look distinguished and experienced, especially when they're confident. Grey can be pretty sexy- think George Clooney and Richard Gere. And even Michael Douglas hehe

Alisa said...

I totally agree~ Totally!

only a movie said...

Grey hair looks hot (on men).

Jessica said...

Haha funny and yet very true.

Rebecca said...

Ha ha, so true. The only thing worse than men dying their hair is the ADVERTS on tv for male hair dye. They are such a cringe!

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

It seems you need to increase your meds dosage because YOU HAVE LOST YOUR DAMN MIND! And I love every second of it!

Snappy Di said...

Salt and pepper is what my man has and I wouldn't have it any other way. He's hot just the way he is.

Lorena said...

Yikes !
I know it looks awful.
Between you and me and the entire blogsphere my husband's dad dyes his hair.

chloe said...

im finding sharpie george clooney strangely attractive..
LOL, not really, haaahaaa!

the other ridiculous hair fail that men do is the brush-over, trying to cover half their bald head. funny when the wind blows though, aye!

turd ferguson said...

If clooney wasn't clooney no women would care about his looks. What's the average age of women who think salt and pepper is hot? 40 plus?
