The color: Exposed Roots

Description: "Whatever you want to call this trend, it's king!" said Hill. "It reigns supreme on social media and Pinterest. We get this request daily at the salon." The trend basically involves showing your roots in a chic way. "It's natural and youthful," she added. "It simply takes the edge off of your roots, making the origination of your highlights have a less deliberate appearance. However, you can pull down the root color to almost mid shaft to create an almost barely there, peekaboo look for your highlights."

Who it works for: "This technique is for everyone — it's simply a taste preference," she noted. "Whether your skin is pale and fair or a deep olive, you can wear it. The lighter your hair, the more soft and subtle the rooting is. If you're a brunette, its best to keep it richer. It can be the most subtle shadow, or a deep rich root. It ranges from translucent almost not there to an opaque coverage. Everywhere we look now models and actresses alike are rocking their roots."

Technique: "Ask your colorist what is the best level of depth of the darkness of your shadow so it doesn't clash with your highlights or skin, being that it's so close to your hairline," Hill explained. "I love this modern look, and it simply buys you time in between appointments due to roots being so on trend."
