If you love playing up your roots as much as your tips, you’re going to love the latest hair color trend: slime roots. And don’t let the name fool you because there is nothing gross about it.
The team behind the look is Bleach London, aka one of the coolest hair salons around and the ones behind countless enviable rainbow dye jobs. They’ve recently made us obsessed with leopard print hair and checkerboard hair, as well as other root-centric styles like rainbow roots. This time, they’ve taken a slimier approach thanks to hair colorist Tasha Spencer.
Allure reported that Bleach London recently did an Instagram Story which showed the entire process of slime roots. If you missed out on it, don’t worry because Tasha also shared a preview photo of what the look is like on Instagram. While a lot of visible roots look focus on the parting line and have a sharp contrast with the rest of our strands, slime roots are different. In the Instagram story, we saw Tasha apply a hot pink dye to the top layers of the hair from the roots all of the way down to the ends. She then applied a bright green dye to the bottom layers. The resulting look makes it appear like you just got a bucket slime dropped on your head…but way prettier than that sounds.
Bleach London recently made us very excited when the salon teased its upcoming makeup line with the help of Lou Teasdale and Georgia May Jagger. Now, we have slime roots. What’s next? We don’t know but we have no doubt that it will be something good.
