Bright, platinum hair for men is becoming an increasingly popular trend and one that's set to make quite an impact in the coming seasons. Bleached hairstyles are always guaranteed to make a statement, but would you be brave enough to try one?

Important things to consider before bleaching

Bleached hair isn't a look for everyone, so before you try it, there are a few things you need to think about.

Firstly, you may want to reconsider the peroxide if you're expected to keep things neutral for work, or if you have especially damage-prone strands. Secondly, depending on your hair type and natural color, you may need more than one treatment to get the exact shade of platinum you want. So, be prepared to be patient!

Last but by no means least, you need to be aware that cutting everything off is the only way to get rid of bleached hair, should you decide it's not for you. So, you need to be 100% sure before you take the plunge!

Why you should go for it

Bright blonde is a stand-out hair color with a rebellious edge (Ryan Gosling in The Place Beyond The Pines, anyone?) that will never fade into the background.

The bold hue essentially speaks for itself which means you don't have to go to great lengths when styling. All you really need is a small amount of wax to sweep it back, to the side, or to lightly dishevel it, and you're good to go!

What do you think? Would you go platinum?
