First came hair contouring, then it was all about opal hair, and now a new trend has emerged for beauty junkies to obsess over. Glitter roots are the next big thing in hair, and this look is already breaking the Internet. It looks like the wave of wacky hair looks is still going strong, and it doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. I wonder which celebs will try this look first. Kylie Jenner, are you listening?
This sparkly trend is pretty much exactly what it sounds like — handfuls of colorful chunky glitter applied right to the scalp. But before you go and deem this look as strictly for Halloween, let me explain how it can easily solve a common beauty problem. If you color your hair, then you are no doubt familiar with the annoyance of outgrown roots, right? Instead of constantly running to the salon for color touch-ups, why not dust some luminous sparkle to cover up those roots? According to PopSugar, many women are now opting for this shiny alternative, and it's totally fab.
The sweetest part of this style is that it's super easy and inexpensive to create. All you need is some glitter in the color of your choice, some clear hair gel or pomade, and you're well on your way to radiant roots.
