Gray Hair Don’t Care

Bob Barker became pretty well known for his beautiful head of silver hair. His hair color literally changed overnight in 1987. Apparently, he received the “Okay” from the higher-ups to stop dyeing his hair. Even though this was in the late 1980s it was a new thing for a host to have gray hair as all of the others dyed their hair.

Bob Barker spoke to The Los Angeles Times about his well-known locks. Bob said, “I was prematurely gray; I began to gray at my temples, and I guess it could be that technology at that time was not what it is today, but I didn’t look good. It looked like I had no hair at my temples, so they suggested I tint it.”
