Hair Root Touch Up

When Elena’s clients leave the salon, she wants them to step out feeling as if they could take on the world. This starts with the right cut and style, but even the best haircut can be held back by the wrong color – especially at the roots.

Elena is accomplished in a broad range of highly technical hair root touch up services. Each is applied with skill to achieve a slightly different goal.

Shadow Root:

By making roots darker and blending them into the rest of your overall color, Elena creates gorgeous dimension and the illusion of volume. This is a great choice for natural brunettes who want to minimize the appearance of regrowth. It also directs the eye to your main color.


A revolutionary color technique that effortlessly blends your roots with the rest of your color – natural or not. Hair is painted in a graduated fashion for a softer, more natural look that still stands out.

Highlight Roots:

Lightens small sections of hair along the root. Whether you opt for highlights over the natural root or all over your hair, this option can brighten your style and add volume or dimension.

Color Correction:

A bad color process (at home or at another salon) can leave you struggling with hot roots or a strange halo effect. Elena can help you overcome this with a quick hair root touch up to get them back on track.

Babylight Roots:

Incredibly fine sections of hair are highlighted to create a more subtle highlighted look. Ideal for people who choose platinum blond, silver, or ash grey overall color, but can also be used with red, dark blonde, or honey blonde hair to add visual interest.


Similar to balayage, but with a more pronounced and attention-grabbing effect. Blended hair can start almost anywhere on the hair shaft and extend up to the root.


Roots don’t always have to look completely natural to be fun. A colorful rainbow root adds a splash of fun to light blondes. Deep greens, blues, and reds create an “oil slick” or holographic look on brunettes.


Like ombre, but uses softer color blends and less contrast to create a subtle transition after the root. Works particularly well with red hair and brunettes, but can be ideal for blondes, too.

Why Touch Up Your Roots?

The roots of your hair are also more likely to show signs of fading, color loss, or even just fresh growth after a full color process. This can make a great dye job look unfinished, uneven, or even botched, especially if you have balayage or a shadow root.

Since the average person’s hair grows at a rate of about 0.5” to 1” every month, it’s best to see Elena for a hair root touch up at least once a month. But you don’t have to wait, either – you can come in the moment you see your roots peeking through. It’s easier and less product-intensive to eliminate a shorter rootage.

Don’t let your roots hold you back. Schedule an appointment with Elena and discover just how creative and inspired this style element can really be.

With a Hair Root Touch Up, Why Not Add Another Service?

Hair root touch up services create an ideal opportunity to let Elena give your hair a little tender TLC. Combine your appointment with other services to really take your experience to the next level. Elena will work with you and pamper you from the moment you step through the door to the moment you leave.

Hair Root Touch Up - HER Hair by Elena

I was referred to Elena and I was nervous to try a new hairstylist. Our first consultation was an eye opening experience. She listened to my ideas and gave me her expert option. I appreciated her honestly and believe she had my hair's best interest.

She was able to take out the red dye and turn me into a blonde. I never thought I could have healthy long blonde hair before her. She is talented and very patient with me. I definitely recommend to call and book an appointment with Elena Rosas!!!

When I first went to Elena I had never colored my hair because there was never anyone I was able to trust with that responsibility. The first few times I went with her I just got cuts until I started to see her work. I took the chance and allowed her to do her "magic" on my hair & I am so happy that I did. I have not once been disappointed. She is 100% honest and refuses do a session on your hair that will damage your hair in one sitting.

When I first wanted my hair colored I showed her a color that was about 5x lighter than my actual hair color and she refused to do it in one sitting because it would damage my hair tremendously. I wasn't upset I was glad that she was honest because majority of stylists will do it in one session which makes hair look very unhealthy. She is unlike any stylist out there, she is an incredible woman with a whole lot of talent who knows her job better than anyone I know! I love Elena, she's the BEST!!

I drove an hour and a half round trip to have Elena fix some highlights-gone-awry and a haircut that I knew was off but was too afraid to be critical of it. Rome can't be built in a day but she wisely suggested a gradual route towards fixing and moving towards what I'm sure will turn out to be perfectly natural highlights and a great cut that just needs a little time to grow into itself.

If you want wonderfully natural highlighted hair, you can tell by her pictures & Instagram that she completely knows what she's doing! She's so skilled at her craft and she takes your hair seriously - both its health and color and what you're able to keep up. Go to Elena if you are looking to take your color to the next level and not just settle for what is typically offered; she does a great job!
