5 Easy Ways to Cover Hair Roots

5 Easy Ways to Cover Up Your Roots

Changing your hair color is fun; dealing with nasty root grow out isn’t. But roots are easier to cover up than you think. Whether you’re going back to your natural shade or just giving your hair a rest in between dye jobs, here are five ways to make growing out your roots totally painless. To see them, just keep reading.

Braids

Headband braids and french braids in general are a great way to conceal roots, because they wrap layers of hair over one another, creating a more uniform look.

Big, overdirected curls

Creating tons of volume at your roots with large, loose curls makes your roots stand up, hiding them.

Headbands

This is a classic solution, and still a good one. Make like Blair Waldorf and band it over. Using a wide ribbon or a scarf works well, too, and is always chic.

A sleek side-parted bun

In the opposite direction, creating a deep side part and slicking your hair back against your head makes all your hair look darker and makes your roots stand out less in general.

Root powder

The most direct solution is to powder your roots. Bumble & bumble makes an actual hair powder spray for blond, brunette, and raven-haired touch ups (sorry, titans), but in a pinch you can also use baby powder or face powder to change your shade.
