    Hey I just changed my hair color from dirty blond to platinum blond lately. This was a fashion statement inspired by grunge punk artist Kurt Cobain (for those of you who don't know who he is, he is the singer of Nirvana).

    Basically is platinum hair a good move for a guy?

    It looks pretty good on you, but you should lighten your eyebrows a bit so it looks natural.

    Also, who the fuck doesn't know who Kurt Cobain is?

    Generally no, unless you were born with ice blue eyes and a super pale complexion and were blond to begin with. And are over 6 feet tall. So in conclusion, generally no.

    I used to do platinum blond and everyone loved it...but then again all the above is true of me, I'm 6'2, ice blue eyes and I'm certainly not tan. LOL

    Yippee!

    A masculine guy can pull it off (sometimes), but if you're nelly in the least you're going to look even nellier.

    REALLY? HONESTLY? there are ppl who don;t know who Kurt is?

    Anyway, Platinum blond looks good one some ppl, but usually those with dark skin - it's a great contrast. Platinum on light skin = kinda too much paleness.

    I had pure white hair at one stage. One pic in my profile to prove it - I think it took like 3 bath tubs of bleach AND about a while 6 month to get it gradually to that color.

    I went slowly blond this past year, and just had it touched up to completely blond a couple weeks ago... I think it looks good, so do others. And its cut in the Hitler Youth Style... short/shaved on sides and back, long on top, slicked/combed back...
    My youngest brother and I, both had brown hair growing up (well, now its salt and pepper), my middle brother was the runt. Not only was he shorter than my younger brother and me, but was naturally bottle blond, he would have made Hitler proud, he looked so teutonic/nordic, LOLOL So now I know what my middle brother would have looked like all grown up and blonde (he passed away when we were kids....).

    I think blond Asian's are hot! It's the contrast of the darker features with the crazy bleach blond.

    its looks good on you and is acceptable as long as there is a batch for the snatch.

    It doesn't work for everyone but it works for you. I suspect that it helps that you were a darker blond originally. I think I'd lighten your eyebrows just a bit as well.

    Unfortunately reaching a full violet level 10 is hardwork and lots of maintenance. Most can only get a chicken fat yellow or uneven color all over.

    This picture of Kurt Cobain is not of platinum hair. It's around a level 9.

    However, it's a look. If you own it; it's yours.
