Neither is getting the gray out, which brings us back to hair--a preoccupation of every man at every age, whether he has it or not.
Consider Jack Martin, a 37-year-old bar manager at Morton's restaurant in West Hollywood where movie producers driving Jags pop in for pina coladas. Consulting with his hairdresser-image maker, Martin says he wants to be rid of the gray hair that he's had since he was 20.
"I figure I still have a youthful appearance, but the gray makes me look older," he says, acknowledging that although the Southern California man is changing, his obsession with youth is not. An hour after the stylist begins his transformation, presto! Martin's hair is shorter, and the gray is gone. He appears to be a new man, slick and sexy.
So, dudes, don't say you haven't been warned. The surfer look has wiped out. There's a gnarly new trend making waves in Southern California.
