Celebs—whether their style is outrageous or tame—seem to be taking a cue from Marc Jacobs‘ choppy Spring 2014 wigs and intentionally exposing their roots.’s platinum blonde social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, who is currently showing off her “dark side,” has affectionately dubbed this look “saving money.” And apparently the phrase “Stars—they’re just like us” rings true (at least when it comes to color touch-ups). Both Nicki Minaj and Dianna Agron showed up on red carpets last night baring the hue they were born with. Perhaps the dying ombré trend is taking higher ground.
