The beauty world is constantly changing – just when you’re starting to get bored of one trend, another one comes up to get you excited again. In this case, I’m talking about color melting. Color melting, in short, is a more natural form of the ombré. Remember ombré? Ombré means going darker at the root and gradually getting lighter at the ends of your hair. But the harsh contrast between colors was something many people found to be too bold, and ombré quickly became a trend that either you love it or you hate it. If you are one of those people who still love ombré hair, but you’re looking for a more seamless finish, color melting is the solution.
Color melting (don’t worry! It’s not actually about melting the hair) is a hair dye technique that softens sharp edges and erases that dreaded line of demarcation that can happen when you dip-dye your hair and use different colors. So, instead of going from dark brown to light blonde very quickly and boldly, your hair color will naturally progress and look like it’s melting. It takes a little more effort to achieve the look, but I believe it is well worth it.
And now your question: Is this technique REALLY that different from another more subtle form of ombré, balayage? For those who aren’t familiar, balayage is another way to make transitioning colors look very natural. It allows for a sun-kissed natural looking hair color – similar to what nature gives us as children – with softer, less noticeable regrowth lines. In my opinion, very similar to color melting. However, according to hairstylists the technique is different.
Check out the way in which the technique is used on both traditional shades and whimsical color. I dare you not to fall in love with the look.
