It's 2018, and the latest hairstyles that people are discovering keeps getting better and better. This spring season Gem Roots should be taking over the game. This style is one step up from an Ombre or high lights; it is a combination of two interesting things, healing crystals, and hair dye. This rocking trend first caught our eyes on Allure, the person to thank for this look is no other than Chita Beseau's who is a Las Vegas hairstylist who shared this style with us on her Instagram page. Along with Beseau's post came tons of positive feedback and comments she shares her techniques and how anyone of us can pull off this look very soon. In this post, we'll take you on a wild ride on how this hair trend came to be, which celebs have been seen wearing it, and how to ultimately slay this gem roots look. Spring is finally here, and we want you stepping out the house looking flawless and sexier than ever, so without further ado, let's get into this beautiful gem root trend.

How to Get Gem Roots

This style is like that of hairstylists Steph Scissorhands; she did a signature hair coloring technique of rainbow roots. In this method, she would take every shade of red, orange, yellow, blue, indigo, and violet to create a colorful effect on the roots of the hair. You can say that Chita Beseau got great inspiration from Ms. Scissorhands herself and thus this beautiful trend came to be. The creator of gem roots says that she wanted a crystal-inspired hairstyle. These healing crystals are becoming a big thing with millennials, and you can buy them as accessories or have them around your house to promote health, creativity, among many other things. Something as cool as this would make an excellent hairstyle don't you think? So, how do you get this look, Beseau applies to light, pastel colors around the root area of your hair, for example, lavender, mint green, and light pinks on to someone's hair that is platinum blonde color. Usually when women have their hair colored it is on the ends, or all throughout the locks. But merely focusing on just the roots gives a dramatic and eye-catching style that is perfect for springtime. Gem roots are fun to try if you do not want to go through the hassle of dying your entire head. So, remember this style is all about muted pastel tones, anything that is brighter or sharper in the shade would technically be considered a rainbow root technique, so keep that in mind if you are planning to get this hairstyle.

Healing Crystals and Colors to Choose From

The whole process averages about two hours, so make sure to be patient throughout the entire process.
