They coach the stars of tomorrow, encourage the hopefuls and console the “just-missed” performers who don’t quite have what it takes. But now the tables are turned and the judges are being judged for their hair color excellence. Competitions like American Idol and The Voice attract millions of viewers each week, and with all those eyes comes careful scrutiny of the stars who anchor the shows--including their hair color.
