To book the hair color appointment...or to wait a few weeks? It's a question we all toil with on a practically daily basis—but oh, what is this? Celebrities...in front of cameras...with visible roots? This makes it OK for the rest of us, right? Here, 7 reasons to start dodging your colorist.

Rita Ora
Ora's always apt to get peroxide-happy, but her dark arches look way more fierce when her platinum hair has some dark chocolate roots to match.

Blake Lively

Jessica Alba
Those who want to ease into the overt roots trend, this one's for you. Alba displays a trick we once learned from a hairstylist: If you've got slightly more root than you're proud of, style your hair with a side part.  It looks less drastic!
