Glitter Roots Are A Thing Now And Everyone On Instagram Is Doing It

We have had hair tattoos, rainbow hair, even mermaid hair and the newest trend on the block is...(drum roll please) glitter roots. It does what it says on the tin and involved literally applying glitter onto your roots.

The trend is actually not that new, Miley rocked the glitter roots back in August, but it seems the trend has finally trickled down to the masses.

The trend pays homage to the 90's, a time when having glitter in your hair was cool AF. And it's also a great way to hide that fact that you need your roots doing.

Although it looks pretty arty, the look is super easy to do. All you need is some glitter - everyone has a jar full somewhere right? - and hair gel. Just mix some clear hair gel with your glitter of choice. Then, using your fingers or a small foundation brush, you paint the gel mix on to your parting. It's that simple!

To be honest when we first heard about this trend we weren't sold - we pictured it looking like sparkled dandruff, but these girls make it look pretty good.

Obsessed with this 👌 #spacebuns #glitterroots #pinkhair #thecraft
