Help! I just found out I have an event tomorrow and I have roots, what can I do?

We've all been there: a last minute event is tomorrow, and you had to cancel your hair appointment with your favorite stylist the previous week. Now you're freaking out because no amount of begging can get you in for a last-minute slot. Don't panic! There are a few things you can do without resorting to a box dye from Target, potentially ruining your stylist's beautiful work and setting yourself up for a corrective color.

Root Concealer Spray

My personal favorite solution is a root concealer spray by Style Edit, which you can purchase here. 

This semi-permanent root touch-up spray comes in several color options, making it easy to find your perfect match. It doesn’t come off on pillows and washes out with your next shampoo. To apply, hold the spray about 6 inches from your part line and around your face if you're wearing a ponytail or updo.

Eyeshadow Hack

If you’re desperate and only have a couple of hours to get ready, try the eyeshadow hack. Find the closest matte eyeshadow to your hair color (aim for a shade or two darker). Using a concealer brush, dip it in water, load it with eyeshadow, and apply it to your visible roots. This quick fix can be a lifesaver in a pinch!

Complicated Color? No Problem

For those with a complicated color application at the roots, try creating a messy zigzag parting and then curl your hair or use a styling wand. This technique distracts from the roots and highlights your beautiful hairstyle.

No Products? No Worries

No root spray or eyeshadow? No problem! Just rock some 6-inch heels or a stylish hat. Trust me, no one will be looking at your roots when you're that tall or that fashionable.

Remember, these tips are for emergencies, and your stylist will get you back to fabulous in no time!
