"But with Gen XY, men are actually choosing their own hairstyles."

Edward cited the stigma for men to not care about their hair as the reason for why he never changes it, but he was interested to see how it would affect him emotionally.

Richardson had never colored his hair because of his conservative upbringing, and described himself as the "boring one" in his group of friends.

Luis mentioned that seeing guys with awesome hair on the street and on social media had inspired him to try something different.

And Yoshi, besides being nervous about how the entire coloring process works, was most pumped about looking like a video game character.

Edward chose to take his dirty blonde locks to a dark brunette.

As a blonde, people sometimes made snap judgments about his personality when they first see him.

Richardson wanted to turn his black hair into a platinum blonde, because even though blondes don't scientifically have more fun, choosing to be one means you're going to try.

Finally, Yoshi wanted to go "granny," meaning taking his dark black hair to a stunning silver gray. David mused that the gray hair trend was proof that any color — even what was once considered a sign of aging — can be rocked.

He was not prepared for the intensity of the full-day bleaching and toning process but took it like a champ.

It took several minutes for Yoshi to recognize himself, but after he did he loved his new, anime-inspired look and was already thinking of new colors he could experiment with.
