Taylor Hicks will start dying his grey hair next week

Perhaps the most recognizable American Idol 5 contestant is reportedly about to lose his recognizable feature.

Taylor Hicks’ “grey [hair] is gonna go, just not all at once,” TMZ.com reports, in its typical lack-of-actual-information style. Hicks will apparently dye his hair gradually, so that “[e]ach week, over the next few, Hicks grey will become less prominent.”

And that, web journalism at its finest, is the only information provided, although there is an illustration. In case its readers’ imaginations are not functioning, TMZ has photoshopped a picture of Taylor transforming from grey-haired to black-haired.
