Rainbow roots are not for the faint of heart . . . nor for lapsed salon clientele. However, if you are extremely lazy about getting your color touched up but still want to get in on festive hair color, glitter roots might be just the thing for you. All you need are a jar of leftover sparkles (we're sure you have some in your stash from Halloween!) and a bit of hair pomade. Part your hair as you desire, dab some product close to your hairline, and then sprinkle away! It doesn't matter what kind of glitter you use. Colorful, star-shaped, holographic — feel free to get creative.
While this would definitely be a fun trend to try for the holidays, we're not convinced it's something worth rocking on the regular. Those familiar with glitter cleanup know what a struggle it can be. Adding it into your strands will result in you finding little flecks of bling on your pillowcase for days, because multiple shampoo sessions probably won't get it all out. But if that's not holding you back, read on for more glitter roots inspiration and check out our DIY glitter roots video. It looks especially adorable when paired with a funky hairstyle, like twin buns or pigtails.
