The LA Times has a story this week about blondes with roots, and it's so insane it actually makes sense: Writer Monica Corcoran asserts that brown roots with blonde hair is "the latest way to feign indifference to your appearance" - if $300 shredded jeans, threadbare designer t-shirts, and anything by Martin Margiela doesn't really work for you. Her proof is a slew of rooted celebrities, including both Olsens, Madonna, and even Jessica Simpson, plus Los Angeles stylists paid hundreds of dollars to paint "lowlights" and darker roots onto their fair-headed clients. There's also a new wig from the Raquel Welch collection that comes with built-in roots, and a stash of Marilyn and Brigitte Bardot photos showing the sexbombs with their own dark scalps. Corcoran surmises the tarnished blonde hair represents a good-girl-gone-bad complex, and her argument is both persuasive and intriguing. Still, in our ash-blonde experience, we can also say those dark streaks growing in are less good-girl-gone-bad and more good-girl-gone-broke. It must be those $300 jeans that were carefully run over by a monster truck before hitting Barneys...
