1- Keeping That Hair Healthy

It’s a not-so-secret truth: healthy hair looks best. While 40 is still young and sexy, keeping your hair healthy does become more important as one grows older, and since healthy hair can often be the difference between a decent look and an incredible one, it’s something guys of all ages should be thinking about.

that your overall look turns out. On this subject, you have two options: go with your natural color, or use hair coloring processes to achieve another. In this day and age, the stigma of greying or whitening hair is no longer what it once was, and we at HairBetty think that whether your hair is staying the same color of your youth or is changing, it’s probably gorgeous! There are few people in the world whose natural hair color is unattractive, and in fact, some of the sexiest men on earth are dudes aged over 40 who have let their hair color change naturally. We’re talking about guys like George Clooney, Anderson Cooper and John Slattery, all of whom have grey hair and all of whom have been considered among the most handsome men on the planet.

Of course, dying hair is also not a problem! When choosing to dye hair as a man of 40 or older, we have this advice: stick to natural hair colors. We don’t mean your own natural hair color specifically, but instead just hair colors that occur naturally. As one matures, wild colors like blues or greens tend to look strange and out of place on men, while brunettes, blacks and even blondes can look absolutely stunning. If you do decide to color your hair, frequent visits to the salon for touch ups are key to keeping your look in perfect condition.
