It seems like these days perfect hair color is all about in effortless shade of just right blond, brown or red (among other colors) that literally melts from dark to light and from root to tip. Known as color melting and different from techniques used to balayage and ombré the hair, this look creates a more diffused blend of color without a root, harsh lines or any demarcation.

Taking just as long to do as other methods of highlights, the major point of distinction is that color melting places the color in a specific order that’s kind of like balayage to create a blended look as opposed to a bright pop of color.

Because there is no root line, the results last longer than average highlights and don’t grow back in with a root either, creating an overall softer look that lasts longer, too. Ideal for pretty much every shade of hair under the sun, here are some of our favorite examples of color-melted hair.
