Okay, so the aim here isn’t to go more gray per se, it's rather to use highlights to enhance and blend those grays that creep in early. A more groomed and even result, à la Edward Lewis, if you will. Sold yet, dudes? Well, according to Neil Cornelius, of one of Bond Street's leading salons, it's totally a thing. “Nearly every male client I have gets their hair coloured". The popular new request? The "tampering" technique. This involves highlighting and tinting the thatch, the beard, and even the eyebrows, for that dapper, au-naturel finish.
These days, the male grooming aisle is almost as packed as women's one. Arguably, it ain't full of dying kits just yet, but surely it's just a matter of time? Though beware. DIY tricks for this particular gray-covering technique have a high failure rate, so may we advise booking in at the salon to avoid any embarrassing "I don't want to talk about it" mishaps.
