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?

Grey out!

He definitely looks hot and sexy and smoking with the gray hair! He doesn’t have to dye it anymore, if he is in fact going gray naturally.

He can do whatever he wants, this man is gorgeous!

Damn his fine. How old is he? The grey kinda suits him.

Dr. McSteamy looks much better with coloured hair. Gray hair just makes him look more aged, not sexy.

i personally prefer older men so salt & pepper is very very attractive to me, especially on a ‘younger’ man. men age more gracefully than women do–they should embrace it since they can pull it off! lucky jerks. ;)

Gray is great. Having to maintain a hair color out of a bottle is not natural…bad for our water systems. Healthy shiny white hair is beautiful!

I love a guy with gray hair. Look at Richard Geere. Yummy!

Jennifer on

I think his hair looks great!! I prefer McSteamy over McDreamy any day!

Love it! I think it’s refreshing to see someone show signs of ageing on television, especially given the trend of botox, surgery, etc.
