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.
