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?

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.

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.

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!

Dye your hair pink.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
