Hairstyle Ideas: How to Look Good Between Color Touch Ups

Find out which hairstyles can help hide re-growth and hold you over until you get to the salon.
Volume Filled Hairdos
An easy way to get the attention off your roots is to pump some volume into your locks. Hairstyles that keep your locks from sitting flat against your head will help to disguise faded roots. Inject plenty of volume with backcombing tricks and hair rollers.
Hair Part Mix-Up
As your regrowth becomes obvious, mix it up with a change in hair part. If your hair is normally parted on the side then try a centre hair part and vice-versa. The new hair position will show off an area of your hair that normally doesn't get attention, and hide the areas where your color is in need of a touch up.
An updo can do wonders for color weary locks. First of all it puts the underneath sections of your hair on display (which won't be in as much need of a color refresh as your top layers) and it also pumps volume into your locks and draws attention away from your roots.
Our final hairstyle idea to keep your hair looking good between color touch ups is a wavy hairstyle. Regrowth can be very obvious on flat, straight hair, but waves can play down your grown-out color by putting bounce and hair texture into your strands, making the most out of faded or non-uniform hair color.
