"Facial hair does not produce the same melanin as the hair follicles on top of your head," says Jeff Yabut Master Barber at Truman's Gentleman's Groomers, which is why a beard is both coarser and more prismatic than the fuzz that grows on top of your head. "I would suggest to stay as natural as you can," he says. Blake Shelton is a great example – he has reds, blonds, browns, and grays and it only adds to his swag. There are men who do color their beards to either hide some bizarre pigmentation combinations or the onset of grays, but color doesn't take well to the thick hair on your face.
