Let's face it: in REAL life, many of those who have truly white hair have gray, dark brown or black roots. Storm may be a mutant, but she's still a human. I think that whole 'do gave her serious bad-ass edge which was sorely needed for the character--since Halle is often very soft-spoken.
Totally agree with you. Storm's hair in the first two movies looked blonde on film (Singer actually talked about this in the commentary... how a white wig will just look blonde on film). The darkening of the roots made Storm's hair finally look like a freakish white color that's part of a mutation and not... a blonde wig.

I would have liked a better haircut and maybe this time they'll have the balls to actually give the hair some texture like a real African woman's hair might have. Sort of like in the pic I posted but white (with black/grey roots/high/lowlights).
