Quick Hair Hacks to Disguise Roots

You are here

Were you one of the unlucky ones who missed out on their colour appointment due to current lockdown restrictions? Fret not, for we have some quick hair hacks on disguising your roots until your next appointment.

Tinted dry shampoo/root spray

Possibly the most obvious of quick fixes must be the trusty tinted dry shampoo or root spray. A quick spritz on your roots and you are good to go until your next shampoo.

Add some texture

Having flat, lifeless roots will only draw more attention to them. You can discount this by adding texture to the roots in the form of waves or some soft teasing.

Flip it

Wearing your hair in the same style every day can make things appear a little dull and flat. Using a tail comb, try flipping your parting to a new or opposite side. This will make roots less visible while giving you some volume.


Braids can be great at showing off different tones in your hair, so why not use this to your advantage when your roots are getting a bit much. A tousled Dutch braid can work wonders!


Accessories are fantastic at disguising roots and those greasy hair days too. Try a statement hairband, some fancy clips, or even a head scarf, and no one will notice a thing.

Go for a slicked look

Slicked back styles using gel can make the hair appear darker, so why not try a new style in the form of a slicked back ponytail or bun?
