Shadow roots: 4 ways to work it

Shadow roots are currently trending - but what kind of shadow effect is the right look for you?

A peek of natural colour


It's time to stop panicking at the slightest hint of your natural colour emerging from the hair line: natural is in! Play up your new, carefree colour look by pairing it with piecey waves and a mid-length cut – perfect for fun summer days. To style the look, scrunch damp hair with the Beach Waves styling spray by Wild Stylers to create effortless piecey waves.

Half 'n' half hair colour

Make visible roots a part of your entire look with half-half hair colour. When your natural shade has grown to ear-length, style the hair in a sleek, shiny long bob to add a playful element to your day-to-day look. For extra shine, use the shampoo and hair masks from L'Oréal Professionnel and follow it up with a few drops of Mythic Oil along the lengths and ends to really bring out the colour contrast.

A seamless blonde blend

Instead of letting your natural colour grow out, why not try a darker, but still natural-looking shade at the top and add a brighter blonde shade to the lengths and ends? This style offers a subtle way of trying a new hair blonde colour, such as the popular beige blonde or cool ash. Just remember to stick with two shades that have the same undertones: cool with cool, or warm with warm..

Where roots meet balayage

Use your root regrowth to introduce a balayage effect, where golden highlights are hand-painted onto your hair to create a subtle transition to golden, sun kissed ends. Ask your L'Oréal Professionnel hair colourist about Smartbond, a strengthening system that protects the hair during and after a colour treatment, to ensure hair stays voluminous and healthy-looking.
