Dying

I've dyed my hair thrice over the past couple years (my hair is about 50% gray and 50% black). The first time, virtually no one noticed. Another time, I did it shortly before heading to Chicago for a conference (see pic of me on left). I've not done it in quite a while now, but will most likely do so in the next couple weeks; my mother is getting married again and I may go to my high school reunion which takes place a couple weeks later. In addition to dyeing the hair I do have, I also have a small canister of Toppik which pleasingly fills in my bald spot. My mom has chided me for being vain while coloring hers almost nonstop. I don't typically like to gawk at myself in the mirror, but in '7 after I first did it, I was like, "Hey, Sexy!"

I thought about coloring my hair as its very grey on the sides but I found if I keep my hair cut nice and neat it looks "distinguished" . Its when it starts growing out the grey looks horrible.

I do not even own a comb so coloring my hair may be a ways off.

Hey man, I think your sexy either way, whatever makes you feel better (as long as it is not obvious because that actually does just the opposite and makes one look worse, so be careful).

I have always had the receding hair lines in the front, but haven't really cared about it too much. I have a few grays, but not too bad yet.

dude, go for the shave man! chicks love it.

i'm fortunate enough not to have those issues yet, but the pubes though, that's another story...

Tim, that is a good strategy. I don't own a comb, either.

Rocket, thanks for the compliment. It's important not to make it obvious; there are few things more petrifying than an old lady with jet black hair.

Brian & Ammerung, I'm presently leaning against attending the reunion, so I may not dye after all.

I was in a Walgreens the other day and my partner insisted I buy some beard/goatee hair coloring (I refused). Who has time to color hair every week?
