Question: My husband is getting gray and he'd really like to cover it, but I know it would be difficult to get him to even be seen getting haircolor in a salon. Help!

Answer: I've got great news! L'Oreal Professional offers a quick and easy discreet color service for men. It can be done at the shampoo bowl and to everyone in the salon it just looks like you are getting shampooed. It takes five minutes or less, and it's called "Cover 5."  Depending on the shade your haircare professional chooses, Cover 5 can what we call smudge hype gray, that means it just slightly takes the edge off the gray. It basically mellows the gray out, or if desired, we can cover the gray completely. The great technology behind Cover 5 is when it fades out slowly, like its suppose to, it won't turn red or orange, which is a dead give away that you've had a color treatment. Also, the feedback we hear from our male clients is everyone from family members to co-workers weren't sure what they had done, but they tell them they look great! The cost is $45, and in five minutes your husband will look five years younger. It's a win-win!

Perhaps a better question is how many men actually give a crap.
