If you’re into bleaching or dying your hair, you know the “roots showing” look. After a couple of months you see your natural hair sneaking out and you just can’t wait to get it done! You know you have to wait for at least 2 months to get it bleached again but you’re not happy with how it looks.
Well now there’s a new trend taking over Instagram. Women conceal their roots with glitters, sparkles in any shape and color. You can rock a multi-colored one or stick to your hair’s color.
Celebrities like Miley Cyrus have been rocking the look and Lucy Hale praised the glitter roots look. But you have to admit, if not done properly it could look like dandruff. It’s not so bad to have your roots show but to have a head full of dandruff looking bits could be a bother.
That’s why application of the glitter root look is much more than taking a handful of glitter and dunking it on your head. To get this epic 90s look you need to apply clear hair gel near your scalp and carefully place glitters very close to your scalp. You should only cover a small area close to your roots.
Try not to use fine particles because they may be harsh on your scalp, so go with chunky glitter. You can also add some heart or star shaped glitters to complete the look.
One last tip we have, you might want to stay off the conventional silver-looking glitter because from what we’ve seen it resembles dandruff too much. Go with any other color because no one would think you have pink dandruff.
The glitter root is more of a night look but who are we to tell you when you can put glitter on your hair. Also just because it’s a good solution to roots showing doesn’t mean men and women using their natural hair color can’t rock this look.
