White Hair is Best Hair
Why is it that most white haired boys tend to be bishounen? Maybe there's just something about the hair color that lends itself to the soft, feminine features of some of anime's most beautiful male specimens (Jiraiya being the notable exception to this rule...though he still had it going on for an old man).
Though there's a rather large pool to choose from, let's narrow it down to 20 of the best anime boys with white hair for your viewing pleasure! Stay cool, thing's are about to get uncomfortably sexy.
Let's Start the White Haired Anime Boy Slideshow!
There is no other way to kick off the list than with Kakashi-sensei. Cool, calm, professional, perverted and one of the most respected sensei in the anime world, Kakashi's white hair is a very strong (and attractive) part of his intriguing character. The other of course being the fact that 91.7% of his face is hidden.
"What's cooler than bein' cool?" Smiling once in a while. But, even with his perpetually grumpy attitude, Captain Hitsugaya is one of the most popular anime boys with white hair - ever. Love him or hate him (which appears to be the only two ways you can feel about the little guy), his fluffy white hair and his ice dragon have certainly left a mark in the fandom.
This adorable half-puppy, half-human master of swordsmanship is one of the most loved characters on the list. The InuYasha story has captivated many fans over the years, and its white haired protagonist is one of the most recognizable characters in the anime world.
With the softest heart and most innocent eyes, Shion would be the ideal best friend and devoted companion in the toughest situations. He may be slightly naive about the world, but this anime boy has quite a bit of bravery inside him.
From: Neon Genesis Evangelion
Neon Genesis Evangelion's white haired angel comes in the form of Kaworu. Brave, intelligent, charismatic and full of mysteries, this anime boy plays his part on the list splendidly; especially with his characteristic smirk.
From: Tokyo Ghoul
Interestingly, it is precisely the acquisition of his white hair that marks the pivotal point in the development of Ken's character. Instead of being just a stylistic addition, the draining of his original black hair represents the shedding of an old, regular world - and with its loss - the birth of a very different being.

If you had to describe Accelerator with a sound, it would probably be RAWR! For fans who have a thing for sadists and white hair, there is no perfect combination of the two than this example! This incredibly intelligent psychic will use telekinesis to cause quite a bit of trouble, whilst smiling the entire time.
This adorable anime boy has all the cuteness and charm to make fangirls' hearts work overtime. But don't be fooled, underneath all of that kindness also lies a clever little devil, who is very competitive and also, quite gluttonous.
Shougo and his white hair enjoy both the kind and the devilish sides of human life (with a slight preference for the latter). A skillful fighter, avid reader, humanist, somewhat sadist and incredibly charismatic anime boy. Certainly boyfriend material for those who like the bad boys.
From: Death Note
Although not necessarily a character that has ladies screaming his name, Nate possesses an intelligent and analytical mind, questioning the world around him and playing a very important role in the Death Note series.
From: Fate/stay night
Archer is one heck of a fighter and skillful in nearly all areas of combat. Apart from his hard exterior and sarcastic tone, he actually has a very realistic - albeit pessimistic - view of the world and whether it will ever be possible to change it for the better. It is his attitude and heroism that adds this anime boy to our list.
From: Death Parade
With an impressive - nearly unbreakable - poker face, Decim may act cool and undisturbed, but he has a surprising respect for people who have lived fulfilling lives. He also has a very peculiar hobby.
From: Hunter x Hunter
This cute assassin is full of experience and knows plenty of tricks of the trade. However, he can also be kind and thoughtful when his friends and innocent lives are at stake.
A chill guy with a cigarette and messy hair who helps the world. You may not get much action out of him, but you will gather quite a bit of wisdom. And speaking of wisdom...
A perverted old man, a trickster, a bit of a drunk, and one of the dearest teachers and father figures in anime. He may not be an anime 'boy' per se, but he and his white hair holds a very important spot on this list. clenches fist
From: Soul Eater
With his naughty attitude, charming piano skills, devotion, and the ability to transform himself into a powerful weapon, Evans is a memorable and attractive addition to the list.
Shiro is a gentle young man, who loves his friends and equally loves to use his cute smile to get free lunch from them. But, when it comes to battle, although he may be lacking in physical traits, this anime boy's mental abilities are very impressive.
From: Vampire Knight
An attractive, white-haired vampire hunter with a dark attitude. What more can a fangirl ask for?
From: Fruits Basket
Souma may be a joker most of the time, but if angered, the 'ox' inside him causes one heck of a rampage. Enemies quickly learn to stay on his good side, and fans quickly learned to appreciate his white strands.
A very passionate anime boy whose white hair isn't just for show, but also symbolises a very important part of his physical state.
