Outgrown roots have a tendency to sneak up on us: One day, we’re sitting in the salon chair marveling over our freshly dyed locks and then in the blink of an eye, we’re staring at our natural color coming back to reclaim its rightful territory.

Since we don’t always have the time (or money) to head to the salon for touch-ups as often as we should, we turned to the runways for creative hairstyles that will help buy some time in between visits. From milkmaid braids to ballerina buns, there are a ton of cute ‘dos to help you disguise—and maybe even embrace—your outgrowth.
