If you're looking to add a little more sparkle to your beauty routine, this star's got you covered. Dakota Fanning wore glitter roots on the red carpet, proving that the unconventional trend is actually pretty doable. She shone bright for her time in the spotlight, and it turns out the trend is easy to do for everyday wear as well.

When I first heard of the glitter roots trend, I wasn't quite sure how practical it was. That all changed when I saw Fanning sport the look on the red carpet. The star rocked blue, sparkly roots at the premier of her new movie The Neon Dragon, which seemed fitting considering the her bright look. She coordinated her hair, makeup, and outfit perfectly by sticking to a frosty color scheme, and it completely paid off.

While her hair was just straight and parted down the middle, it was her roots that stole the show. She had blue glitter subtly sprinkled into her hair that matched her Dolce & Gabbana dress and icy eyeshadow perfectly. No other accessories were needed for the night, because this was enough to make a subtle yet sophisticated statement. Just check out how gorgeous the 22-year-old looked.

If this doesn't make you want to bust out the glitter and do some DIY-ing, then I don't know what will. Every single aspect of this look is on-point, from the glitter to her nude lipstick.

Fro far away you can't even tell that her hair is so dramatic. Then you get close up and realize how awesome the styling is.

I seriously can't get over how great this looks. I'm now a glitter roots believer.
