With the success of men’s “makeover” shows and boutique male salons popping up all over the place, it’s hard to ignore the fact that men are starting to care more about their looks and even willing to give eyebrow tweezing and back waxing a try!

It does, however, seem that men are still hesitant to give hair coloring a try?

Perhaps it’s because they’re not sure what to ask for. Pam Kelly, National Director of Technical Services for Fantastic Sams® Hair Salons, is here to break it down for us:

Amazing Grays - Yes, some men look great in gray (hello, George Clooney!), but for others it adds years beyond their true age. Those with a full head of gray can ask their stylist for the “progressive method,” which will gradually get them back to their original color.

Of course, he can also ask the stylist for a complete color and dive right back in to the darker color of yesteryears. Or add light colored highlights to help soften the face, giving him a more youthful look.

Through Thick and Thin – If your hair is thinning, coloring your hair will add thickness. It will also be shinier, both of which aid in the appearance of more hair. You can also try thickening shampoos like fantastic for men™ volume boost shampoo.

Care after you Color – In order to keep the color vibrant, it’s important to follow a color care regimen. Use shampoos and conditioners that are made specifically for color treated hair such as Fantastic Sams fantasticcleanse™ color care shampoo and fantasticcondition™ color care conditioner products, which will help in preventing color loss.

Let Your Shade Shine On – Using a shine spray will accentuate and add shine to the color. Try fantasticfinish ™ spray shine which is specially formulated to create brilliant, healthy looking hair. Plus, it is added with sunscreen for UV protection to help stop fading.

In a Clairol Professional survey 33% of the respondents reported that they preferred to have their hair colored in a salon rather than risk doing damage at home. 50% of the participants said they liked their colorists best because of friendliness while only 38% valued good advice about haircolor or the fact that the colorist kept up on the latest trends.
