J.Lo and Gwen Do It...When It Comes To Root Perfection

When Jennifer Lopez was crowned People magazine's 'Most Beautiful'  woman in 2011, she admitted in an interview, that she started going gray at age 23, and has since then, been touching up her butter-y brunette roots every 2 weeks!

Sounds like another talented star.....super blonde Gwen Stefani. We learned that she, too, was root-phobic and has J.Lo beat by a few days earlier.

Gwen  told  Harper's Bazaar that she keeps those pesky roots away, by using a beauty trick that movie goddess Marilyn Monroe lived by:

"Do you think Marilyn Monroe had to talk about this?" she asks smiling. "Well, I heard she did hers with a Q-tip every 10 days, so I try to follow Marilyn's rule." I mention that she's never been photographed with dark roots,  and she points to the houndstooth fedora she is wearing, "And you'll never see me with roots either."

Visible roots bother most of us with colored hair and/or grey strands. And like Gwen Stefani, there are ways to hide the roots when you can't cover them up at the moment. Yes, a hat works. You can also try a jagged hair part, instead of straight down the middle or side.

You can buy those clever root fixers that just hide the little devils until you can head to the salon.

But for some women, roots are very challenging hair strands that
are so stubborn, that even a salon professional cannot always achieve the perfect dye job.

So, until that beauty dilemma can be solved permanently, many of us reach for the color sticks, wands, powders and so forth, to hide nature's curse, ourselves included!
