"I love it, great," Dempsey said of his new 'do. "It's fun to do something different."
He told Instagram followers that his "platinum-coif" was done by his wife Jillian, who also shared a post styling her hottie hubby's hair last week.
"Unfortunately, or fortunately, I'm known for my hair, so this has really jacked up a lot of people," the actor said. "They don't know how to embrace it."
