Sup. I'm a 20 year old dude in college, English major with a minor in journalism  blah blah whatever.

Look, I want to dye my hair. I've been thinking either straight out bleach or some kind of green/turquoise.

Thoughts?

Sure, if you can pull it off.

Hmm not sure if I can pull it off. I don't want to look gay but idk. I've always liked stuff like tattoo's and whatnot. I always thought people with dyed hair looked awesome.

Don't worry, dying your hair turqoise definitely won't look gay.

what does your education history have anything to do with this? anyways, if you want it, go for it. just dont do streaks, like the mallcore kiddies.

Nah dude, one of my best friends colors his hair all the time. It's been red, green, purple, pink, even leopard spotted. Doesn't look gay.

Holla.
Seriously you'll just look stupid, no-one looks cool with green coloured hair, they just think they do

I fucking love Adam West Batman! Why does everyone on Giant Bomb get the idea to put him as their icon? I can't say I'm complaining though because he always makes me laugh!

Go ahead and do it if you want to mind.

Instant 'popularity'.

Go for it. Self-respect is only worth so much.
#17 Posted by Axersia (1615 posts) -

Dye your hair pink.

Only the manliest of manly can pull that off while still looking straight.

#18 Posted by serbsta (1867 posts) -

Go for purple, purple is the new green.

#19 Posted by WSGRandomPerson (144 posts) -

Go for teal, and/or electric blue. You'll stand out in the crowd.

I wouldn't do it, but I just personally think dyeing one's hair is stupid. If you are going to do it don't bleach it because that is just nasty.

Unless you go completely over the top and do it bright green or something, you'll just end up looking like a girl.

#25 Posted by killer_meatballs (470 posts) -

Sure.  Then get the tribal tats, white belt,  eyeliner, and emo pants.

Try it out with that temporary dye that lasts about a week (ask around and make sure its temporary) I did mine at home. That's what I did in college. I suddenly had the desire to do so a little before graduation, and I knew having dyed hair lessens your chances of getting a job, so I got a temp one and it was gone by graduation.

Depending on the college, as long as it doesn't have some religious denomination or Billy Graham in the name, it's highly tolerated even by the professors (some even welcome it), as long as you do your work, etc.

True.
#29 Posted by ZimpanX (420 posts) -

The colors you want are pretty hard to nail properly though, the safest bet is black but if you don't want that then sure go for it. You can always cut it all off if you don't like it. :P

I guess. Why are you asking us for approval? You can't decide yourself...

#31 Posted by DavidPalmer (343 posts) -

You're still in college so you can certainly do it and not stick out or look outrageous. However, I've found that with a lot of these things, as soon as you do it or after a few days you're going to regret. I'd sit and stew on it for a week or so and see if you still want to do it. If you do, then go for it. Just to make sure it isn't an impulse thing because there's nothing worse than making a change that you can't easily undo for like a month on a whim.

Hair dye is almost never a good idea
That is, if you're looking to attract females... :-)

#33 Posted by Virago (2486 posts) -

If you're trying to get ladies.... don't do it.

#34 Posted by brukaoru (5079 posts) -

I dyed my hair once... Never again. Waste of money and stupid, in my opinion.

thats because they have confidence. If you do it, make sure you walk around campus looking like your the shit, and not hanging your head trying to hide it. 
#37 Posted by Absurd (2934 posts) -

I've never dyed my hair and never plan to, I just can't stand it. I don't even like it when Chicks do it.

That's actually a good suggestion. If you walk around campus looking like the shit belongs to you no one will notice your ridiculous green hair.
#40 Posted by AttackedCamo (817 posts) -

Do whatever you feel like.

#41 Posted by DARKIDO07 (876 posts) -

I would die my hair pink/purple if I could....but my parents won't even let me die my hair let alone pink/purple. :P
