NYT: Mr. Jonas, 26, was spotted Nov. 17 with a festive cobalt-colored streak in his dark hair, shortly after his recent breakup with his girlfriend.
“Even when your heart is broken, you want to feel like you can pick up and be a new person,” said Logan Levkoff, a New York-based sexologist and relationship expert. “Dyeing your hair or doing something dramatic, in an idealized way, tricks us into thinking that we are.”
For men, dyeing the hair is a natural progression of the breakover, which in the past has been a more straightforward affair. (Think of John Mayer’s cutting his shoulder-length mane in 2012 after his split with Katy Perry, or Ashton Kutcher, who shaving his beard after separating from Demi Moore.)
