How To Rock The Rooty Look

If you’ve ever dreamed of making yourself over as a blonde bombshell, now is the time to go for it. Bold and dramatic white-blonde shades like platinum, champagne, and the uber-trendy violet white have never been hotter.

That being said, there are a couple of major considerations you’ll need to keep in mind if you’re ready to take the plunge into seriously lighter locks. The first is expense. The cost considerations of maintaining a fabulous blonde dye job add up quickly, so be sure you know ahead of time how much regular touch-ups will cost. The second consideration, and the one we’re addressing here, is that if you go blonde, no matter how committed you are to touch-ups, there are going to be times you have roots. With a few simple tips, you can rock the rooty look with confidence. Here’s how to make the time between fresh dye job and touch up appointments work for you.

Get the Right Stylist

A great stylist is always an asset, but non-negotiable when it comes to going blonde. You need your stylist’s expertise in matters such as choosing the right blonde and how long to go in between touchups, as well as to get the job done right.

Violet Hued Shampoo

A violet shampoo and conditioner that is formulated just for platinum blondes will do wonders for your hair at any stage of growth. When your roots are showing, it will give you a lovely contrast, keeping your blonde from yellowing, while remaining vibrantly bright.

Moisturizing Isn’t Just for Your Skin

It’s always important to keep your hair moisturized, and even more when it is color treated. Hydrated hair is stronger and less likely to break, and it looks better, too. Bumble and Bumble offers a great selection of moisturizing products to keep your locks lustrous. Try their Tonic lotion, Brilliantine, or Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil for sleek, healthy hair.

Darken Up Those Brows

When you’re rocking the rooty look, ensure that the contrast looks intentionally dramatic. Darken your brows with a product like NARS Brow Perfector Pencil, or go pro and get them tinted.

Pucker Power

Blonde hair and bright lips are a winning combination. Pair your platinum with a pop of dramatic lip color. Yves Saint Laurent’s Rouge Volupte Shine in Corail in Touch or NARS Pure Matte Lipstick in Carthage will turn heads.
