Trends I love: Hair Color Melting

A huge trend right now with hair coloring is called color melting. Basically instead of applying highlights root to end like you normally would in foils, you blend the colors from dark at the roots to light at the ends. This can be done with just two colors or as many colors as you like. The highlights are placed in order to bring out facial features and brighten up your skin tone. The results are really natural and soft, the type of look that is worn by lots of celebrities right now. Color melting has been around for a while, but people still tend to shy away from it because they think that dark roots and light ends will make them look like they have "grow-out", when it all reality it just makes your color look more natural. Take a look at these pictures and see for yourself! Notice how all of them have dark roots and light ends, creating a really natural looking color. You would never get a "stripy" hair color with color melting!

  3. Hi Stephanie! It's Kim, the "bean burrito" girl. I visited you in July for the first time for a cut and color and requested this melting technique. I just wanted to let you know that I LOVE the way it turned out - just the right amount of highlights and the color transition is perfect. I get compliments on my hair now where ever I go (both the color and cut are fantastic). Thanks for helping me take the plunge and try something new!

  4. Hi! I have naturally lighter hair but I love the melt look. Have you ever seen anyone do a reverse melt? Dark on the bottom and blonde on top? If so, do you know of any pictures?

    Stephanie,
    Would this work on a shorter haircut? I love how it looks but I only see longer hairstyles. My hair length is about a 1/2 an inch below my chin.
