Is McSteamy Going Gray on Purpose?

Posted on

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?
