Color-Melting is the New Ombre, But Better

We’ve heard enough about weird hair and beauty techniques that convince us once more that we will do anything to look beautiful. But today we have a new hair dyeing technique that doesn’t only look mega-cool, but should also be on your must-try list for the upcoming season. Color-melting, they call it! A better, less scary name could be picked, we agree, but that just adds more surprise, doesn’t it?

We can say color-melting is the evolution of the ombre hair, a more perfect color gradation. After pastel colors came into trend (yes, we know all the cotton candy haired Instagram accounts out there!), there just had to be a way to mesh those two hair trends together and make them look natural. Color-melting will give you that new pastel-ombre look.

Instead of leaving the tips of your hair in pastels, you can go with the whole head; there won’t be any sharp lines and you’ll eventually achieve a perfectly blended color transition. Even if you’re an experienced hair scientist (that’s what you’re called if you do many experiments on your hair), you will still leave a few demarcation points for us to peak on. So listen to our words of wisdom and learn how to perfect your skills.

“Melting is a technique that blends the highlights with the base color of the hair so you don’t have any harsh lines,” Matrix StyleLink stylist George Papanikolas said in his interview with BuzzFeed.

Just like highlights?

Yes, Papanikolas also said, “The difference between this and regular highlights is that you use multiple shades to create the ‘melted’ effect.” This means more time in the hair salon chair, more color mixing, testing the shades and washing your hair. If you increase the number of shades that go into your hair color, you will get a much smoother gradation, just like an animation movie.

And we are interested! There are so many combinations you can use to create optical illusions or simply breathtaking color clouds. The best part of this new hair dyeing technique is that it works with almost all shades; it doesn’t matter what’s your root color and what you expect to see on the bottom. All colors and shades work well with color-melting, creating an all-natural blended look.

You don’t even have to use the pastel colors.

Although they look stunning, you can make this technique work for your regular ombre hair. Instead of waiting for months for the colors to soften, you can now get it right from the first time.

You might want to leave your first time for your hair stylist. Give him a call and tell him you want to try color-melting, just in case they haven’t been following the news. They will have time to do their research instead of actually melting your hair.
