Problem: Obvious, different colored rootsFast Fix: Braid your hair
Don't you just love it when you can look chic and trendy while also covering up a major color flaw? Braiding mixes the two-toned hair, which helps make the roots less noticeable. Side-braid the front of your hair, including any bangs you may have, and tuck it behind one ear. Here's a step-by-step tutorial:
Step 1: Create a deep side part, and section off the front part of your hair that you'd like to braid.
Step 2: Spritz a thickening root spray or a texturizing spray (try Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray, $20) to the front section.
Step 3: Tease the front section with a fine-toothed teasing comb to give it volume.
Step 4: Start French-braiding the teased hair along your hairline, including any bangs if you have them.
Step 5: Secure the end of the braid behind your ear with a couple bobby pins.
Robinson also recommends that blondes "zigzag their part instead of [creating] a straight one to camouflage grown out highlights."
