Okay… how do I start? Well, here it goes…….

I thought I remembered noticing, on a rare occasion, a few people back in the 70’s or 80’s with a hair style with transient and minimal popularity. Remember Madonna (in a short lived and controversial Pepsi ad) and MTV’s Downtown Julie Brown for a short time in their careers? Not to mention Lily Munster from the 60’s TV sitcom “The Munsters” …. And recently the mutant diva, Rogue (Anna Paquin), in “X-men 2. Remember any similarities in their hair styles?

They all wore a bleached blonde streak in their hair.

I always kind of found hair style intriguing – actually bordering on sexy (as long as their white stripe of hair was strategically placed against the contrasting dark brown locks). In fact, I probably would have tried it myself at different times, except for one thing – I’m a 35 year old guy. So I continued to give up the idea – worried it would look too gay. If I was gay, then I’d probably still have it in my hair until this day. But I’m so not gay. Maybe I’m myopic but, it seems like more and more straight guys are doing that kind of stuff to their hair (bleaching, highlights, frosting, etc.) So what am I chicken about???? I don’t know! So should I or shouldn’t I bleach a blonde streak in my hair? After all, I’m not getting any younger.

Your thoughtful responses will help me decide. Thanks All!

i completely agree with you on the platinum streak. i have always thought it was a sweet look, but it looks horrible on me, so i stick with red. anyways, i work in a paul mitchell salon and more and more guys are coming in and getting stuff like that done. i haven't seen any guy do just a streak of platinum though, they normally just do the tips of their hair or something like that. i think it could look sweet if you had longer hair, but it also depends on your skin tone and the color of the rest of your hair. if you have blue eyes, the platinum streak isn't going to look as good as it would if you have brown eyes. i say just go for it either way though, if it's horrible and you hate it, you can put another color over it and be done with it in the amount of time the color takes to process. live it up, have fun.

Hi, Im not in this community, but I randomly fell upon this post. I have a friend that is almost 30, and he has been sporting the streak for quite a while now. So if you want reference on what it looks like... here ya go :]

but at least you got an idea of what it would look like on a 30 something guy.
