Love It or Hate It? Visible Roots in Vogue

The October issue of Vogue has a story called Status Roots. The article contends that among the well-heeled and fashionable, deliberately visible roots are the new hair trend. (I'm not convinced.) What do you think about it?

I hope this doesn't catch on. Drastic roots looks sloppy and unfinished. Ugly!

I just think it's odd that last month Vogue had like eight bazillion stories dedicated to a return-to-polish/looking-like-you-tried style, and now we're back to effortless style and visible roots.

I think it can look really good, if you go all the way with it. It doesn't have to be a white trash look, depends on who wears it and how, and what clothes they wear and attitude/postiure.

What kind of crud is this? I swear sometimes Vogue just throws something random out there to see if it'll (for lack of a better word,) "take root". Good job, Anna Wintour. Ugh.

That's a two lane highway with the white line down the middle!!! Just too harsh for me!! SJP always did the dark roots thing well.

Roots look sloppy. No glamourous.

there are some trends that I HAVE to sit back and wonder.... which bitchy queen is sitting in their castle deciding what ridiculous "trend" to make up next to torture the mass public with? Hideous!

Dang, I could have saved $140 today getting my 1/8th in of roots done! Why couldn't I have seen this article sooner?!?!?! ( I have my hair dyed blonde, so I go in every week and a half to 2 weeks.)

Tacky, tacky, tacky, but only if there's a stark contrast between your dyed and natural hair colors.

Well, I think it's cute. Then again, my hair is pink most of the time, so my opinions on hair colouring may not quite be the norm...

Roots are awful.

That's just taken to the extreme to get the article's point across. Very ugh, and not to be taken seriously.

Eeeewwww!!! So not cute! Maybe if you had your hair different colors it could be considered "punk" but "well-heeled" way...not even.
