Should Men Cover Their Grays? - D'Ametri's Salon

With the recent trends of young men dying their hair gray, those with naturally graying hair may be wrestling with the decision of whether to cover their grays or embrace them as the latest fashion trend. It can be a difficult decision to make when you don’t want to look older, but you also don’t want to miss an opportunity to go gray in style. Today we’ll go over some of the pros and cons of coloring your grays to help you decide if you should cover them up.

Pros to Covering Your Grays- An older gentleman can shave years off of his appearance instantly by covering gray hairs. A more youthful appearance can provide a powerful confidence boost and also help you avoid possible age discrimination based on those stray grays. Ageism is sadly something older adults may encounter in their daily lives. Covering your grays also presents a chance to give an entirely new color a try. After all, if you’re coloring your hair any way you may as well have fun with it and try something new.

Now for the Cons- It’s no secret that many women find gray hair incredibly sexy. If you’re single and looking you may want to think twice because covering your grays could really knock down your sex appeal. Gray hair is also seen as a sign of wisdom and demands a certain level of respect. You’ll be giving up a badge of honor if you cover it up. Finally, covering your grays is more expensive and time-consuming. You’ll need a trip to your colorist every few weeks to keep your gray roots hidden which takes both time and money.  

Whether or not to cover your grays is entirely a personal decision. There’s no right or wrong answer. What matters most is how you feel about your gray hair.
