Oh wow! Nope, never gone through anything like that. I would just be honest. I think it is worse to lie in this case and say you like it, when you really don’t. How blue is it?? Bright blue? Does your husband like it? Maybe let him keep it a week or something? That’s what I would do. ๐Ÿ™‚

My husband was dead set on dying his hair green when we were in college. I was cool with that, he played tennis for the university and it was a school color- plus, we were in college.

 If he came home as his 30 year old self and said, “Maureen, I’m going to dye my hair green..” I’d be a little worried as his job is conservative. If he worked in a more creative field it wouldn’t bother me as much, but I’d think it was sort of immature. I think age, occupation, and where you are in your life plays a role in my feelings.

Eep! Hmmm what to do….

I would definitely be honest about it if he asks, but just try to keep it nice. Just say that you love his individuality, but you just don’t see him as a blue-haired guy. Make it sound like it just doesn’t “fit” him, rather than saying it looks bad. LOL.

That is what my husband does to me whenever I wear an outfit or do my hair in a way he doesn’t particularly like. (he prefers my hair down.) That doesn’t mean I won’t do it anyway if I happen to like it, but I prefer his honesty!

Good luck!

I think it is probably just a bit visually jarring and you need to take some time to get used to it.  Also, it’s only hair, and it will fade eventually.  Not permanent.

I have a different view than many on the “weird hair color” thing.   I am 39 and I had “odd colored” hair up into my mid 30’s.  The only reason I haven’t had it some crazy color in the past couple of years is because honestly, I’m too busy with school to invest the time into it, though I do have a bottle of cotton-candy pink waiting in the bathroom cabinet!  Of course when I had jobs that didn’t allow that sort of thing I didn’t do it, but when I was a Stay-At-Home Mom, and now as a student, I figure what the heck?

People would always ask me WHY, and quite simply I would answer that I like different colors, so why NOT?  I just like pink and purple better than brown or blonde. 

I don’t see it as any more unnatural or weird than women putting color on their face via makeup.  Who is born with purple or green or blue or brown eyelids? Really? ๐Ÿ˜‰

So while some may see it as immature, I see it as just having fun.  And yes, embracing my inner child a bit, the one who loved pale pink and unicorns and cake and super frilly dresses. 

My kids always thought it was awesome and so did their friends.  When my son (now 13) was four or five it was waist length and bright purple.  I worked at his school (private) as the afterschool teacher and ALL the children loved it.  I have seriously considered doing it a pale pink for the wedding!

 Okay so after my long defense of funky colored hair, I wanted to say that I DO understand when your significant other does something with their hair or clothing that you hate.  All you can do is give your opinion and leave it at that.  Fiance has some god awful clothing choices I often try to steer her away from but if she likes it, she likes it, and there’s only so much I can say or do without coming off as a control freak (who, me?!).

It’s his hair, he’s an adult… all you can do is give him your honest opinion and hope it’s a phase!

@MissHelen:  I have a son (13) that is fearless when it comes to marching to his own drum.  I admit, I raised him that way, encouraged him to be himself always, and he goes to a very “alternative” type school (charter) and has awesome, open minded friends… but I still worry, as his mom, about him getting flack for many of his fashion choices.  It’s all very Adam Ant / early David Bowie / androgynous.  Velvet frock coats and ripped jeans and turquoise hair. ๐Ÿ˜‰  But he doesn’t care, he says, if someone thinks he’s gay, or weird, or anything else, in how he expresses himself, so i let him do his thing…

@MissHelen: Solidarity! It would be funny if you dyed your hair to match ๐Ÿ˜‰

So when Fiance and I met many years ago, he had long hair. I was a huge Led Zeppelin fan so I was all about the long-haired dudes. He cut it about 3 years ago and part of me wanted to say, “Who are you!?” It took a while to get used to!

Are you married to my fiance? He is dying to color his hair blue. He was unemployed for 6 months, and when he finally got a job the thing he was MOST excited about was that he could look however he wanted. “Babe, I got a job! One where I can dye my hair BLUE!!”

Yeah, not “Babe, I got a job. One that pays BILLS!” That’s my love.

Hahahaha, I’m sorry, but your post title just made me crack up for some reason.

Sometimes certain colors just don’t work with certain complexions. That sounds like what’s happening here. Here’s a pic of me with pink hair and an eyebrow ring and him with a goatee and looooong hair (it’s not the best pic, but all that I have access to right now.. you can’t really see it in the pic, but his hair went down to his butt).

It was SO weird when he cut his hair. I didn’t recognize him and it deff took some time to adjust to it. Maybe you just need to get used to it?
