Should men dye their hair aged over 50. If so how can you make it look natural and also should they grow hair long

Re: hair over 50

Iím not a man so I hope you donít mind a womanís perspective.
How you care for your hair is completely your own personal thing. Some men dye they their hair , full on while some men use that Grecian formula for a more gradual natural greying look. Then again some men go bald and wear toupeeís while others shave it all off and are perfectly fine with it.

Personally I like a man who isnít overly fussy about his personal appearance.
Having a man that fusses more than I do wouldnít go over well. Men who gracefully accept the fact that they are aging is attractive. Anything less than that isnít really accepting reality.
My guy is half bald and shaves his head. It really suites him and it is obvious that heís comfortable with it.

Re: hair over 50

Hair ? Hmm, I have more hair growing on my eye brows and out my ears than on my head. Nuture's dirty trick on men. I keep what little I have I keep shorn very, very short. I have my own electric shears and cut my own. no sense spending money on a dead garden.
One very bizarre thing about me. Up until I was about age 25, my hair was platinum blonde. Now it's a mix of very dark brown and light gray. weird.

I think it is totally up to each man to dye or not. Long hair ? Personally I think it looks ok PROVIDED he still has a full head of hair.

Having said that, mick Fleetwood looks just fine. However, I can't imagine Mick Jagger being nearly bald.

Re: hair over 50

Personally I think men who dye their hair look rather ridiculous. Paul McCartney for example used to dye his chestnut or similar, and with an old face to me he resembled Ken Dodd. It rarely looks natural - and most women quite like the salt and pepper look IMO. Same goes for older women too, a flat dyed brown or auburn or worse - jet black - looks terrible.

I donít think itís for me to say if men should dye their hair at a certain age, entirely up to them, it wouldnít bother me, as for growing their hair long again their decision .

Re: hair over 50

I agree with opinions here that it is entirely a mans decision to grow their hair or dye it. However, personally speaking, men look better just as they are, au natural. Have a chat to a hairdresser if you are making changes - they are better placed to advise what will suit you.

I don't think they should dye their or grow their hair long. But their choice.

No no no
Dyed hair is so obvious because it is almost impossible to replicate natural hair which is made up of a multitude of colours , dyed hair looks a flat colour and unless redone every few weeks the roots show.

I would run a mile from man with dyed hair, for me it signifies vanity and I don't like vain men .

Re: hair over 50

Dyed hair on a man is so obvious, and to me, looks ridiculous.

What many men donít realise is the fact that the majority of men look far more dignified with the lovely silver/grey hair in their older years.
