Is McSteamy Going Gray on Purpose?

01/04/2007 at 06:00 AM ET

Is it just us, or has anyone else noticed that Grey’s Anatomy‘s Dr McSteamy’s (a.k.a. Eric Dane) lovs are subtly growing more gray? While flecks of salt and pepper can make a character look more distinguished — consider it the male equivalent of Jessica Alba donning librarian glasses — Infusium 23 colorist Lisa Chiccine tells PEOPLE that it’s a difficult look to achieve artificially. “If you don’t believe me, check out Tom Cruise in Collateral,” she quips. So how does a hot TV doctor go gray gracefully? “I think that Dr. McSteamy has actually been gray for awhile and his colorist is covering it up less to give him a more distinguished look for the show,” says Chiccine. “They’re probably adding product to give his hair more shine.” Whatever the process, we’re not complaining. Tell us: Do you like McSteamy with the gray? Should he keep it?

Dr. McSteamy is very attractive, but the gray hair
gives him a stressed look. Not distinguished. Either gray, brown or bald
I’ll watch the show!

Dr. McSteamy is no doubt very attractive, but the gray hair gives his face and
neck a stressed look. Either gray, brown or bald I’ll watch the show!

Yeah, he looks good with the Gray in his hair, betcha you won’t see a woman on Grey’s Anatomy with gray hair. I don’t care if she’s 90 years old:) Love the show, love the characters, I’ll watch it if everyone dyed their hair purple.

I love the gray, but I prefer the natural look on men anyway.

I don’t get it, I don’t find him attractive. But, grey suits him.

Valerie on

He could have purple and pink hair and STILL be attractive! I’d watch the show no matter what his HAIR looked like…..he’s not only a great actor, but easy on the eyes, too!

Frances on

OMG he looks hot and sexy with the Gray hair

JenB on

He’s sexy no matter what. Gray hair is attractive on men, even prematurely. Why cover it up?

Shawna on

It does not matter what color his hair is, he is still HOT!!!
