Covering Grey on Men's Sideburns and Stubble Beards

By October 31, 2012

Follow me on:

Blending or covering grey on men's hair on the head using permanent or semi-permanent hair color is probably more common than you think. You might be surprised on how many men get this done professionally or purchase a home kit, and how natural it can look.

If the guy wears sideburns or some type of facial hair, especially when short, this can throw off their whole look. Why? When hair is longer, you don't tend to see the grey roots as much. But because the length of sideburns or a stubble beard is trimmed so often, the roots tend to really show.

Instead of constantly coloring the hair, there are products that come in tubes of basic hair colors that look like a marker or mascara that instantly blend the grey. They simply coat the hair shaft as a temporary means. I haven't personally tried any of them. So I can't say how well they work or if they stay in place and don't smudge. But they're worth a shot as most of them are not very expensive. Buy online (compare prices) or check your local beauty supply store.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming
having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
