Let’s face it, there are a few days to a few weeks in between hair coloring that require some sneaky tricks to hide those roots. These tips and tricks will help you to hide your hair roots in between your hair coloring visits.

Re Part Your Hair

Regardless of how you favorite look, your hair growth never seems to match. When your roots begin to show, start by parting your hair differently. Consider a zig zag part to really add some unique drama to your hairstyle.

If your hair is parted in the middle, you can try a side part to help hide those roots. Since we normally wear our hair in only a few styles it is usually an easy trick to hide the roots without drawing too much attention to them.

Wear It Back

Instead of wearing the hair down and parted, comb it all back and secure it into a high, medium, or low pony tail. This will usually do the trick for a few days to hide those roots.head band to hide roots

Secure the hair in a variety of directions so that the roots aren’t showing. Go left, go right, go up, go down, try out a variety of styles until you find one that allows the roots to be hidden without a great deal of effort.

Quick Rinse Color

There are many quick rinse colors that you can apply to hair. Try one of these to help mask the roots and add some unique dimension to the hair.

Go for a subtle change or go all out and make it very dramatic with bold and vibrant spray in colors or rinses.

Practice new hair styles while your roots aren’t showing and continue practicing as your hair color wears out. The more familiar you are with twists and curls and headbands as well as temporary colors, the easier it’s going to be to hide those roots when they do show up.
