men and grey hair...
The Silver Fox? What Women Think About Gray Hair
By Marcy Barack
"The results are in. We asked Match.com users, "Ladies, is silver hair really sexy on guys?" and thousands said: Gray hair is hot—72%Let's admit up front that gray hair on men is distinguished. On women, it's just old. He's a silver fox. She's a crone. Oh, well, that's why there's Clairol.
The only thing better is when they're bald—12%Let me just drop one name: Sean Connery. Or two: Patrick Stewart. Or three: Michael Jordan. Silver's a sign he's passed his prime—16%These gals are certainly entitled to this opinion, but in my book, the real turnoff is the thinning pelt. The long retreat of the hairline above the eyebrows leaves a skinny peninsula marooned over the nose. Then come the desperate attempts at disguise with the dreaded comb-over. At last, nothing remains but the semi-circular fringe above the collar.
