The Dark Root Trend


Dark roots and the right haircut, styling, make up and confidence can be a beautiful sexy look so there is no reason to be stressed over your roots, in fact this spring/summer the dark root color seems to be increasing as a trend. The grown-out look or dark root I'm seeing isn't so new though, in the 80’s we deliberately colored are roots darker for more drama and expression.
And to wear this look the key is to style your hair either fuller, messier, up, down, straight or dishevelled, and looks best on longer lengths. The“intentional visible dark root look” is a stylish statement , is it for everyone NO but can look oh so hot.

  3. I think I like this look when it's intentional not so much when the natural hair color comes through because most of the time its a mouse flat color, not so pretty unless you a blonde with black roots.

  24. this look has been popular forever a day over here, but not intentional, people walk around with grown out roots which to me is not always nice looking however to artistically and deliberately approach it is awesome
