Forego Root Touch Ups For a While . . . Dark Roots are Hot!

If you have an appointment to have your dark roots touched up by your local hairdressers, save the $60 according to the hot celebrity hairdressers like Ken Paves. Frédéric Fekkai, hairdressers are calling it “root shading” and charges $265 and of course you can buy wigs with dark roots hair if you shop around.

Dark roots or root shading is the latest Hollywood hair style trend. The media is all atwitter over this one, I’ve seen stories on Entertainment Tonight, People Magazine and now this article from the Los Angeles Times all talking about the latest craze “Dark Roots”. It seems that celebrity hair style watchers have seen: Jessica Simpson sporting them lately, as have Nicole Richie, Drew Barrymore, Ashlee Simpson, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Amanda Bynes, Heather Graham, Devon Aoki and Madonna all with dark roots recently.

I’m not sure I like the trend myself, I think as a culture we are going swinging too far away from center on the casual look trend. Last Friday I went out for an annual outing with some friends. We’ve made this a dress up event and have been going to upscale trendy restaurants. At a nearby table we had a gentleman who wore jeans, a flannel shirt (not tucked in) and a camouflage baseball cap. We lamented the loss of the days of mandatory coat and tie. There is just something about the way we feel as humans when we are all dressed up, it makes us act a little more civil and cosmopolitan.

Oh well . . . I’m sure I’ll get some comments on this one from those of you who disagree, so have at it.
