Over the last few years roots have gradually gone from being a fashion crime to a fashion accessory.
Light tips and dark roots, otherwise known as â€˜Ombre Hair Colourâ€™ are now one of the hottest trends in Hollywood. Here are a few photos of our favourites.
Keep an eye out for Rachelâ€™s gorgeous hair in the Magnum adâ€™s on TV!
Serious hair envy. This ash blend works perfectly!
Hilary goes for a slightly subtler look, but it still adds a lovely touch of light to her dark hair

You can hardly talk about this trend without mentioning SJP â€“ she has been rocking it for years!
WANT THIS LOOK?
Unfortunately it is not as simple as just letting your roots grow out naturally! The colour needs to melt from dark to light, so it looks natural and soft. If the difference between your natural colour and your dye is too different, the regrowth will be too harsh.
Best advice is to pay a little visit to the hairdresser. It may cost you a bit up front, but it is easy and cheap to maintain and doesnâ€™t require 6 weekly root touch-ups like normal colouring does!
