This summer's newest hairstyles come straight from the history books--1960s history, that is.

The spat between New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and a Santa Fe hair stylist has gotten as ugly as - dare we say it? - a lousy haircut. Earlier this week, KOB-TV ran an interview with Antonio Darden, who has cut the Republican governor's hair a handful of times.

And for some, well, they just like the sleek black tops on those "Jersey Shore" boys. These are among the reasons stylists say that more men - including those in their late 40s and older and those at senior corporate levels - are dyeing their hair, shedding the shame that was once attached to the practice. Hair salons across the board - from inexpensive chains to ritzy Beverly Hills places - are noticing a rise in the number of men coming in for color treatments, hoping that covering the gray will help them hang onto jobs or put them on the fast-track at work.
