Tamed Roots – How to wear them!

Finally tamed those roots? Here's how to wear them – be out and proud!

The classic middle parting

Long maligned, the centre part, straight down is back. Like every style that has a revamp it's now hip and hot again thanks to a modern incarnation, all about perfect symmetry. Slimming, flattering and modern, it's perfect for long straightened hair or even with a shorter, curlier cut. Watch and learn as street style star, Aleali May shows us how it's done. The Instagram influencer and Air Jordan designer was the epitome of glamour with her straight parting, and roots on show with her comeback aviator jacket during Paris Fashion Week.

Got some waves in your long hair? Model turned fashion editor Veronika Heilbrunner comes across all '70's Clueless' in pink with her roots on display showing us it's possible to wear it without being super straight.

On the side

No half measures for model Jess Picton Warlow posing at Paris Fashion Week like a pro. Roots out and proud work with this side part, slick do too. The lack of symmetry here actually enhances fine features – eyes, nose and lips in a contrasting way.

Fan of all things vintage? The Bluemarine show at Palazzo Serbelloni during the Milan Fashion Week had model Lia Pavlova give great sidewave. An inspiration for those who like to look to the past for their hair.

Top styling tip: To make sure no strand veers out of places add L'Oréal Professionnel's r – the hypoallergenic lacquer is scent free and has super strong hold though it feels and looks entirely natural. A new generation lacquer, it's just the thing to get your cut to stay put and show off those roots.
