Christmas Hair Ideas: Glitter Roots

Posted on 30th November 2015 by PROinsider
Christmas is just around the corner, which means everything will be turning sparkly –  from our clothes to make-up. So, it’s time to turn up the glitz. This year, there’s a new twinkly trend that we can’t wait to try out for the festive season – glitter roots. Yes, glitter in your hair. Hair full of glitter. It goes against our natural instincts to put anything that could resemble dandruff in our tresses, but it’s undeniably pretty and it’s a good way to hide your roots. If you don’t believe us, take a look for yourself and check out this talented bunch who have given their locks the ultimate glitter makeover…

The pastel pink locks are enough to make us swoon, but a subtle sprinkle of silver at the roots finishes off the look.

Gold is always in season for Christmas, and it really stands out against brunette tresses.

This trend instantly transforms a casual style to a look that’s ready to party. We love the mixture of pink and blue tones on this one.

If the glitter isn’t showing up particularly well in your hair, use star-shaped glitter to amplify the look.

Harry Styles' big sis Gemma has put her own individual stamp on the trend. Instead of keeping to a centre parting, Gemma has placed the glitter near to the roots of her beehive. That’s what makes her bee-autiful! (Sorry.)
6. Clipso Hairdressing

Decorate undercuts with metallic sparkle to keep the style edgy as well as pretty.

If covering your roots with glitter doesn’t appeal, pretty up a pony by applying some sparkle to the ends for a twinkly ombré.

Complete the look by bringing the glittery path down onto the face. If you can’t overdo glitter at Christmaswhen can you?!

This is the perfect – not to mention minimal and chic – way to wear the trend if you’re unsure about covering your head in glitter.

This is just too pretty! We could definitely see this look also being rocked throughout summer at festivals.
