We’re willing to bet you’ve dabbled in a few hair products in your time. Perhaps you’ve even gone for a hairstyle that needs some extra maintenance and are now something of a hair expert. But, have you ever dyed your hair?

Hair dye: the lowdown

There are a couple of reasons to give hair dye a try. The most common time for men to decide to dye the hair is when those first few greys start to peek through. If the silver fox look isn’t for you, this can be a great way to retain your youthful locks. However, it’s always best to have a chat with your barber or hairdresser before you give dye a try!

The second reason to give dye a try is for a change of scenery. If you’ve ever wondered what you’d look like as tall, dark, and handsome (well, the dark part anyway!) or as a blonde bombshell, dyeing your hair could surprise you.

Here are a few fun before and after shots of guys on the internet who tried hair dye for the first time:

To dye or not to dye?   

Are you thinking about trying out a new hair colour for the summer? The best way to start is to talk to your hairdresser or barber. Dyeing your hair can be an absolute minefield. The internet is a great source for bad hair dye stories and you’ve probably got mates who’ve made a mess of it too. That’s why we recommend you pick a professional, at least the first time you dye your hair. No one wants to end up with ginger ears or a stained forehead! Having your hair dyed by a professional will also give you the best shot of ending up with the colour you’re actually after.
