With root touch-ups every six weeks and an occasional brightening treatment, coloring your hair requires a lot of upkeep, not to mention quite a bit of cash. And since we don't always have the resources to keep up with our color as often as we'd like, we searched the web far and wide for some low-maintenance hair color ideas that look even better grown out. Because let's face it-we could all use a little more time and money, right?
Thanks to hair coloring techniques like balayage and babylights, the new wave of hair color trends look all the better after a month or two of wear. Don't believe us? Just take a look at Jennifer Lawrence's grown-out babylights or Chrissy Teigen's ombrГ© tresses. So what are you waiting for? Cancel your next touch-up and rock one of these root-baring hairstyles instead. For celebrity hair color ideas that look good with a little bit of a grow out, click through the gallery below.

Balayage, ombrГ©, and babylights are all well and good, but you can never go wrong with the original highlights. And while we love a fresh foil, if done naturally, highlights can go without a touch-up for three, four, or even five months.
