The Low-Maintenance Dark Root

Less than ten years ago, we wouldn’t have dared to show off our dark roots, but these days, it’s all the rage! Whether you’re rocking your natural blonde hair or a pink shade with bold roots, the style is here to stay. Below, we’ll outline how this look can enliven your locks, and when it’s time try it for yourself, contact us to schedule your hair appointment!

Benefits of Bold Roots

Celebrities are walking around with dark roots wherever you turn, and you can too! The great thing about this look is that it works well with subtle and flamboyant hair shades. For example, both Dua Lipa and Margo Robbie are sporting bright blonde hair paired with a “grown-out” dark root. So, what’s so great about this style? Well, it’s very versatile! You can choose for it to be as bold or as subtle as you want. The root can be close to your natural shade, or several colors darker. How about the fact that it doesn’t require frequent touch-ups? Not only that, it creates that dimension we all crave. And, if you’re a fan of vibrant colors, they pair really well with a dark root!

Styles to Consider

If you thought bold roots can only work at the very top where your locks start, you would be surprised. Not only are the roots low-maintenance, they also look flawless with many different styles. For instance, you might consider balayage. This option starts with the dark roots at the very top and very quickly cascade into a lighter shade. Another choice is ombre, where your roots are darker to where your ears meet and then a different color comes into place. Not only that, the lighter color can start even beyond the ears, so this way the focus is more on the bolder color at the top. In the end, you have an option that is natural-looking and casual, yet honors the main point—the dark roots.

Everyone loves a hairstyle that doesn’t require frequent visits to the salon. Luckily for you, when dark roots are done correctly, they look seamless even when your natural color grows in. You might not need a touch-up for a season or two. If you went with a root shade that isn’t too much lighter than your original hair color, there won’t be much of a noticeable difference as your locks start growing out. However, to make sure you’re happy with the overall color for days on end, we recommend visiting us between six to eight weeks for a touch up. You don’t have to worry about any unevenness or discoloration! We will work closely with you to give you a style and shade that puts a smile on your face.

Are you ready to change up your appearance with a bolder root? If so, come down to Salon Antoine Monday through Saturday! If you have any questions before visiting, contact us and we would be more than happy to assist. We hope to hear from you!
