The glitter roots trend has quickly become one of the top Coachella styles that has girls everywhere, including Kendall Jenner, re-thinking their crafting techniques.

Inspired by the look, Redken Artist Doug Treadway has provided two easy step-by-steps using Redken to recreate glitter roots at home. Whether you’re getting ready for the next festival line-up or simply a night on the town, you’ll be able to achieve your own glam-rock look in minutes.

To start:

1. Mist wind blown 05 dry finishing spray through the hair to add texture and an airy finish.

2. Using your fingers, create a natural middle part, pulling hair into two sections.

3. Rake each section into a high ponytail. Secure with an elastic.

4.Reapply wind blown 05 dry finish spray to each ponytail add texture and a slight hold.

5. Carefully wrap each ponytail around its base to create a bun on either side of the head. Secure with hair pins.

6. Spray hair with quick dry 18 instant finishing spray for strong hold.

Glitter roots option 1:

  • Apply metal fix 08 metallic liquid pomade (gold or silver) to the tip of your brush and work on the scalp area either side of the hair part. If you don’t have a brush, use your fingers to paint onto the hair.
  • Apply as little or as much as you would like to achieve your desired glitter root effect. Let it sit for five minutes to partially dry.
  • Apply a second layer of metal fix 08 metallic liquid pomade.
  • Finish the look with quick dry 18 instant finishing spray for strong hold.

Glitter roots option 2:

  • Squeeze hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting hair gel into a bowl, add your color preference of glitter and mix together.
  •  Apply the hardwear 16 glitter mixture to the roots using a brush.
  •  Add additional colors of glitter to create a custom look.
  •  Finish the look with quick dry 18 instant finishing spray for strong hold.
