How To: Glitter Roots Hair Trend


There has been a new hair trend taking over Instagram and it’s the glitter roots trend. Not only is it a bit space-age but it’s also super fun with all the sparkles.

It’s a super easy but super effective look to create that is perfect for nights out or just to make a bold statement.

You can either go for a glitter that’s similar to your hair colour if it’s already dyed into a colourful shade, or you can go for contrasting colours. In this tutorial we have gone for a holographic blue against brown hair, so it really stands out.

How to recreate the look 


 Step 1 

Section your hair into a middle parting, even down the back and create a high top bun on each side (just like the classic Miley look). This can be done by pulling the hair up into a high pony tail on each side, twisting the hair around into a bun and then securing this with elastics.

Step 2 

Mix clear hair gel and your chosen colour of glitter into a bowl.

Step 3 

Using a brush apply the glitter gel to the roots along the middle parting. Apply more product towards the parting and then brush it out to fade outwards.

Step 4

Go out and make a statement with your new hair do!
