We recently got a letter that asked, "How do I cover my roots in a pinch?" You could use hair mascara, which can make your hair stiff or you can follow celebrity Jessica Simpson's lead and try eyeshadow (yes, eyeshadow). A shimmery gold works well with blonde hair, while brown is great for dark hair and to mask gray. To use eyeshadow on hair, first spritz hair with hairspray, then pat eyeshadow along the visible hairline and along your crown.
