Welcome to PhysicsForums, however, this is the sort of thing you can Google (Image Search?) for:
http://lmgtfy.com/?q=root+hair+cell

Conveniently enough, there are several pictures (and a link to the full results of the image search) that are at the top of the page. If you're looking for a description, the Wikipedia page is a good start (basically, it's a cell with one side really elongated, and the increased surface area helps it absorb water / nutrients / minerals):
