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.

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.

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.
