As much as we love our colorists, just getting to their chair can sometimes be a colossal feat. Between work and summer travel, we’ve been known to let the time between appointments drag on more than needed. If you find yourself hiding under a hat more often than not, these five hairstyles will help save the day. We had a pro give us a rundown on the best hairstyles that hide roots. These are the hairdos to try when your color visit is long overdue!

Beachy Waves

Celebrity hairstylist Linet K suggests going the beachy wave route. “Big, beachy textured waves to take away the harsh line of roots and give the illusion of a root blend,” she says.

Loose Knot Braid

Our pro also suggests a loose knot braid style to make sure your roots go unnoticed. Although you want to stay away from tight braids that will only accentuate your roots, a very loose style can also camouflage the color difference. Use products that will give your roots a textured lift before starting the braiding process. This will blend your hair and help the color difference be less harsh, aka less noticable.

Voluminous Crown

The idea is to keep your roots as camouflaged as possible, and volume always helps you achieve that. Our pro’s instructions for a voluminous crown include styling your roots with a lifting powder or spray. Work the product into hair and use a blowdryer if needed to create extra oomph. The result will be a voluminous crown around your hair that blends in your roots.

Strategically Placed Bun

You can also fake a salon visit with a very strategically placed bun. You pull back the hair and secure the bun’s height to match your roots. This will create attention to the bun vs. the color changes within your hair. You can also pull out hairs to frame the face. This will create a front canvas without drastic color changes.

Wavy Side Part

A sleek side part is a no-no in between salon visits. Nevertheless, a very volumized, wavy side part can be beneficial to your ailing roots. This is one of the hairstyles that hide roots. Use volumizing products directly at the root and blow dry hair to one side. After hair is sufficiently dry, flip hair around in the opposite direction. This should create extreme volume and a bit of an organized mess at the crown.  If your hair becomes flat during an outing, you can re-energize the style by flipping on the opposite direction once more.
