What Is Color Melting?

Have you ever been disappointed in choosing only one or two colors for your hair? Or were you unhappy that the colors were distinct after application? If you’ve been wanting another look, color melting might be exactly what you want. It starts with selecting a palette of colors for blending that go well with the person’s skin tone, fashion sense, and overall style. It considers how the hair frames the face, and whether that can be improved. And, of course, seasonal colors, makeup preferences, and fashions also play a part in the selection of color-melting shades for the hair. HICI Go offers color melting in its catalog of hair courses.

Variations and Techniques Used in the Color Melting Process

The hairdresser might choose a few techniques and variations, depending on the desired effect. Some stylists will freehand the highlight color of the blend, either throughout the hair or in a specific area, such as around the face. With this framework in place, the hairdresser can use darker tones in several different ways.

With an ombré approach, they may apply a darker base shade and then work down the lengths of hair, to lighten and blend from midway to the ends. Another possible look might focus on the roots, making this area darker, and then applying lighter shades throughout the rest of the hair. Color melting catches the eye, whether based on blonde, brunette, reds, grays, platinum, pastels, copper, or honey colors.

Using the brighter, lighter colors of the palette to brighten up the area around the face and bangs, stylists smooth a rich blend of color tones throughout the remainder of the hair. The effect plays with light, accenting both skin tones and fashion colors. And with every change of hairstyle, the wearer can show off the highlights and colors in new ways
