I hate that look! I’m pretty sure that someone must have commented on someone’s dark roots and they received a sarcastic reply about it being the new “in” look and people took it and ran with it. lol

 

I don’t care if the person is just late getting their hair done or if they paid big bucks to get the look...it looks universally bad.

Maybe they think if you buy a wig with black roots it won’t look like a wig....after all, who would walk around with black roots if they had a wig?

I love the idea of a reverse psychology wig. Deep. Woman Very Happy

It isn't a look I like but it has been a trend for quite a while. They aren't roots anymore, they are low lights, don't ya know? LOL

We are all have choices it’s not everyone else choices. But that’s what makes it good. Like I’ve said before I would not want to know people that agreed with everything I said.Because I’m not always right.

@blackhole99No way do I care to return to those days.  Many, many good things have occurred since the days dark roots were not in style.

@leggett2 

When did I say I hated the look?! I made no judgment call at all just wondering when it happened. period. Whether someone bleaching their hair blonde looks natural is one thing whether it looks good on them or not is another thing entirely
