For as long as we can remember, hair colors with roots exposed were considered taboo. But today’s trend ditches the colorist for a more natural look.
Rooted color options offer contrast by combining a dark color at the root with a lighter hue throughout the hair for an effect that looks natural.
This deliberately two-toned look pairs stylishly with slightly messy waves for a boho-chic experience, and lends a casual element to bobs.
Each wig manufacturer names this color option something different and uses their own description to reference it. For instance, Jon Renau refers to rooted colors as a "shaded" with an S before the color number in their Exclusive Color Collection. Examples include S12, S10, S8, S6, S4. Raquel Welch uses the letters (SS) in their color description which means Shadow Shade. Amoré and Noriko, which are both under the Rene of Paris brand, designate their rooted colors with a (-R). Henry Margu uses (GR), and Ellen Wille designates her rooted color options with the word Rooted after the color description.
