    Has anyone seen it? The one where the dad with GREY HAIR is getting ready to go for a job interview (how crazy is that?), but his daughter tells him to dye his hair black and he ends up getting the job!

    Wow! Who knew men with grey hair at job interviews were at such a disadvantage.

    just washes the grey away!!!!

    what the commercial was really saying is "if u have grey hair u look old and no one will want to hire u and ur grey hair because you're an old doddering fool, so in order to be taken seriously by society use our product!"


    in a nutshell.

    Yes.. and? this is modern day advertising.. What every advertiser wants to say is "Your shit, your absolute shit, you are worthless and you should die.. UNLESS you buy this product, then you are awesome and cool and everyone will love you"

    of course, that is condensed down to the absolute truth and of course no one would ever say that, but they are attempting to deflate your ego so that you'll by the product in hopes of being cool and fitting in and looking for successful.

    They are selling a product, what else are they going to do, but to target a man's vanity.... or ego, or both!

    Mate, looking at the only photo that really shows your face (I am of course assuming you are the one in the yellow tshirt icon_razz.gif ) I'm betting you could pull off the salt and pepper look and look freaking HOT!!!

    I'd have to see more photos though because I could say yes or not either way, but any man who can confidently carry himself in any situation and what ever life throws at him is always hot in my book!

    Let it go. My father started going grey at 16. It's not as big a deal as TV makes it seem.

    In the UK they have badly dubbed the commercial.

    And they payoff line is also weird, "I'll need to buy some new ties!"

    Yeah, like that's everyone's first thought when they get a new job.

    A while back, I got a brochure in the mail for hair dye that was clearly aimed at 40-ish gay guys. It creeps me out that marketers have that much information about me.

    Anyway, prematurely gray, but thick and curly is called "management hair." It can get you a job or a promotion, even if you're a complete fuckwit.

    I have been getting little white hairs here and there....I kind of like it. I think it makes me look a little older....I have always looked so much younger than I am. I have some of that Just For Men stuff under one of my bathroom sinks....it has been sitting under there for a couple years just in case I decide to use it one day.....but have no plans to do so right now.

    A few guys look fine with grey in their hair, but not me. I keep it out. Just don't go too dark, it isn't a good look. Lighter brown is good - with a couple of red highlights, as if the sun did it. The Just 4 Men product is great - takes a couple of minutes every couple of weeks, costs less than $10.00. Not a problem, and if you don't go too dark or all one color, it will not be something that others can spot as a "dye job". Look at my hair in my main photo. I do my own color and it looks 100% natural - even up close. Get advice on how to do it right, or just let the guy or woman where you get it cut do the treatment. It just looks infinitely better IMO to have natural, healthy color up there instead of the plain old gun metal grey. I can be grey in my 70s, I sure don't need to be letting that happen in my 30s.

    I have seen guys passed over for promotion in favor of a younger guy. The sub-conscious thought is that the younger guy will bring newer or more advanced / up to date training or experience. The younger guy is thought of as more with it - even in medicine. No way am I getting passed over (at 37) for some hot shot fresh out of his residency in his late 20s or early 30s because I look tired out or past my prime.

    The commercial with the daughters is a little weird. I wonder what happened to the mother. Maybe focus groups or survey research indicate a man will listen to his children but not his wife?

    I have a lot of grey hair, and I dyed it once to see what it would look like without the greys. Meh. My livelihood doesn't depend upon looking younger, so I won't be dyeing it again.

    I've had grey hair since high school, so I've been used to it for a LONG time. It definitely doesn't bother me. I got ragged about it in high school and some in college, but not so much since I hit my 30s. I tend to agree with the mention above that you can usually spot a grey-cover-up a mile away (unless it's done professionally).

    I guess it really won't bother me until the rest of my body catches up with the grey. And by then, I likely still won't give a damn. icon_biggrin.gif

    WRONG.........my partner has gray hair. Not only is he gorgeous, he has landed two executive positions in the last 13yrs. I like his gray hair. Everyone assumes he is older than me, when in fact I am 5yrs older than he. My parents really didn't get gray hair until their early 70's. Indian blood I guess.
