The "rooted" trend is a progression from the Balayage technique: your hair is freshly coloured yet designed to look grown out, creating that natural, carefree style. This technique can be used on new or slightly grown out highlights, and you don't need to head to the salon to get it, it's super easy to do yourself at home!
Clairol Colour Director, James Corbett was nice enough to share his tips on how to get the look:
Leave out a one-inch section around the hairline to keep existing face-framing highlights or you can use Nice 'n Easy Hairpainting first to create the highlights. Then clip that section out of the way.
Apply your chosen Natural Instincts shade to the first 2-3 inches of your hair from the root, excluding the section you clipped in front. Do not work down the hair shaft.
Process for 10 minutes and rinse. Shampoo the ends only so excess colour doesn't fade from your roots. Condition your whole head, dry and admire your new look!
