Overgrown Roots Are The Fall Trend You’re About to See Everywhere


Like it or not but, embracing your grown-out roots has never been cooler. With the on-going coronavirus pandemic, we know that you’re probably not making quite as many salon visits as you’re used to — especially if you live in California. This can make regular mane maintenance kind of difficult. So, why not embrace the drama of a rooted look in the meantime?

Plenty of your favorite celebrities have already shown the visible roots trend some love, including the queen of overgrown roots herself, Dua Lipa. Below, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite celeb-approved hairstyles that will inspire you to rock your roots with confidence this fall.

The Trusty Top Knot


Look pretty and polished in a flash with a super chic yet easy top knot like Margot Robbie. We love the addition of the velvet ribbon that celebrity hairstylist Bryce Scarlett added to the look.

The Embellished Headband


Blinged-out headbands will be super on trend for the fall. Dress up your darkened baby roots like actress Charlize Theron with a jeweled crown of your own.

The Modern Mullet


Embrace your inner rocker chick with a “business in the front, party in the back” haircut like Miley Cyrus. Your grown-out roots will look so good styled in an edgy, shaggy mullet.

The Blunt Bob


If this tousled, platinum blonde cut on Laverne Cox doesn’t convince you to give the bob life a try, we don’t know what will!

The Half-Up Half-Down Pony


This super bouncy half-up half-down pony that celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin gave Hailey Bieber is beyond gorgeous and totally worth copying.

The Messy Ponytail


Is there anything better than a messy high pony? This perfectly undone look that celebrity hairstylist Justine Marjan created for Kristin Cavallari not only looks super effortless but is also easy to style.

The Twisted Crown


This two strand twist and crown of curls that Issa Rae rocked is such a mane moment! Even with her darkened roots, she still lets her auburn curly coils shine.

The Super Sleek Updo


Serve up some serious 90’s nostalgia like Dua Lipa with a piecey topknot. Don’t forget to add some face-framing strands to really take the look to the next level.
