Gem roots? Instagram's newest hair obsession

Gem roots? Crystals? Gem stones? Hold on, we aren’t talking about some magical crystal that can make your hair look like a real amethyst. We are talking about the latest Instagram trend that takes inspiration from crystals and applies a crystal-like multi coloured look to your hair. Created in Nevada, Las Vegas by hairstylist Chita Beseau. This multi-coloured look combines rainbow roots with a crystal craze with soft pastel tones.

As mentioned above, rainbow roots which was inspired by having dark roots and light ends. It involves hairstylists colouring only the root area of a person’s hair with a colour.

If you are looking to recreate the colour effect which is seen in the pictures above. Beseau painted purple, mint and pink dyes onto her client’s blonde hair. If you use a semi-permanent or a wash out hair dye on the roots of your hair, over time your hair will be able to go back to its originally blonde state. This style is great for festivals or any events where you want to add some colour into your hair. If you’re into a more natural look, try the dark natural root look or try adding a hint of silver/purple to your hair with a purple shampoo such as Fanola No Yellow Shampoo.
