Re: When did dark roots become a desired look?

It seems the dark root thing came in with "goth"; at least it did here.  It was a l o n g time ago.

Re: When did dark roots become a desired look?

A few years ago I colored my hair blonde & platinum a few times each and I would get momre compliments on it when my chestnut roots would grow out a little bit! At first I was self conscioius about it but then I grew to love it!

 

I always like to think it is the confidence you have in your hair style and how you rock it rather than how a trend is telling you to do it! Smiley Happy

I think dark roots with blonde hair became a thing when Madonna made it popular back in her early singing days. It sort of became mainstream then.

Re: When did dark roots become a desired look?

Currently, I'm participating in the "dark roots trend."

 

I've been lightening my brown hair for 25+ years to camouflage gray, and recently decided to stop.
