Didn’t it seem like just yesterday you got your new color done? Your roots were no-where to be seen until you walked past the mirror this AM and saw inches of regrowth. Roots have an unfortunately magical way of appearing, but no need to panic, calmly make a phone call to your colorist, book an appointment and then click through to style notes to learn how to conceal your roots in the meantime. –– Michelle Rotbart


Change Your Part

If you’re always parting your hair in the same place, that area tends to naturally flatten out, making your roots more apparent. Simply try parting your hair on the opposite side and give yourself a tousled style. Another option is to ditch the part and pull hair back into a cool bun or ponytail concealing roots altogether.


Add Texture

A tousled voluminous hairstyle is another option for hiding roots. The more you can lift hair off the scalp the less you’ll be able to see color irregularities. Use refinish dry shampoo to soak up oil and add body and movement to create root camouflaging texture.


Try Makeup

This is a bit unorthodox but you can use eye shadow to cover your roots. Find a matte shade that matches your hair color and dust it on to your part with a brush. Use it with a light hand and build, if you end up using too much, just brush through.


Go The Celebrity Route

We’ve noticed a number of celebrities like Shailene Woodley and Julianne Hough rocking dark roots. And if they can do it, so can you, all you need is a bit of confidence and a devil-may-care attitude. You’re colorist is just a phone call away anyway.
