Got grays? Marisa Tomei's secret for hiding her roots is on mega sale — over 40% off

My Cousin Vinny star Marisa Tomei has graced screens for five decades now, but you would never guess it from looking at her. Her signature dark chestnut hair has always looked gorgeously rich and vibrant, and we recently discovered her secret for covering grays in between hair appointments. The actress uses Style Edit Root Cover-Up Stick — and it’s as little as $21 on Amazon (down from $36) for a limited time.

Tired of root touch-up sprays that leave your hair crunchy? This celeb-approved root cover-up is more like a big crayon, and users say the color doesn't rub off.

Why is this a good deal?

Now marked down as much as 42%, Style Edit Root Cover-Up Stick is a great option for anyone looking for a quick touch-up. Keeping up with grays using at-home hair dye or in-salon appointments can be expensive — you're lucky to leave the salon without shelling out at least a couple hundred bucks every time. On the other hand, this cover-up stick can save you a ton of time and money by helping stretch out the time between dyes. Even better? We haven't seen this little wonder discounted so steeply since Black Friday.

Why do I need this?

Marisa, now 59, spilled her beauty secret in a video with Vogue, saying, "I have a little thing for my grays, which is fine, at the ripe old age of 57," as she applied the product along her hairline. The root touch-up stick comes in a variety of different shades and easily covers gray hairs with a few swipes.

The celeb-approved hair product uses color-adaptive pigments that adhere to hair fibers and self-adjust to cover grays flawlessly. It works on all hair types, has a pointed tip for precise application and dries quickly without leaving your hair feeling sticky. Even better, the root touch-up doesn’t flake, run or rub off on clothing, users say.

What reviewers say

It’s not just Marisa who is a fan — the Style Edit Root Cover Up Stick has hundreds of five-star ratings from Amazon shoppers, too. One called it a "fabulous product," before adding, "Draw it on your roots, smudge with the other end and voila! Your roots are no longer visible!"

"Holy cow! This stuff is amazing," raved another. "I love that I don’t get that sticky, crunchy hair the way the L’Oreal spray makes my hair feel. It blends in really nicely. It also doesn’t come off on my pillow or clothing. It’s not as complete coverage, but it looks so completely natural."

"Hey presto! Grays are gone!" said a final fan. "The medium brown appears just a shade bit lighter than my dark brown hair but because it's just the roots, in blends in well. ... Just a tad bit on the expensive side for how much you get. I try to use it sparingly and only when I really need to. Other than that, it gets a big thumbs up from me."

And that’s not all: The brand's powder version of its root cover-up is majorly marked down, too. You can also nab the spray version (albeit at full price, but still inexpensive at $30) if you prefer.

Choose from black, dark brown or light brown (shown). The color-adaptive pigments blend to better match your strands.
