GQ’S Key Rules to Colouring
Don’t rush into it. Grey’s good – look to Pitt and Clooney as guides.
Leave it to the experts. To dip a toe in the coloured pool, try a salon treatment like Redken ‘Colour Camo’, which takes five minutes and fades naturally.
Before choosing a colour, take your skin tone into account. If you’re of the Eddie Redmayne palette, warm reds and cool browns are ideal. A bit more Cristiano Ronaldo? Solid dark chocolates are the go. Either way, go for something semipermanent and see how you like it.
Alternatively, dive right in and echo the platinum of fashion’s man of the moment, Lucky Blue Smith. A few words of warning, though – remember that he’s a model, and that this approach requires an air of confidence and significant upkeep. If you don’t own this look with the right attitude, it’ll wash you out quick smart. It’s also best for those of paler hue. A tan would be seriously discordant.
