How To Get The Perfect Color Melt


Know your client
As professionals, we want every client that walks into our salon to leave happy and satisfied. To do this, we need to understand what expectations they have for their hair.


Before we start, we consult with the customer to know the condition of their hair, what they hope to achieve from our session, and more. We can manage our client's expectations and chart a path to successfully color-melting their hair.


Clarifying
Before color melting is done, the hair must be cleaned to remove any buildup that the hair might have on the surface. It could be oils, products, or anything else. Using clarifying shampoo, we can wash off much more of the residue.


Use the Correct Tools
Using the right brushes can make or mar your color melts. Melt brushes are specially designed brushes just for this purpose. They are soft, lightweight, and have synthetic bristles perfect for smooth and easy application. These brushes create an instant and natural blur, unlike other brush types.

It is also important to bear in mind the comb being used. Depending on how large your transition area is, you will need either a wide tooth or a fine-tooth comb.

Trying something new with your hair is always an exciting experience. One technique that doesn't completely change your look but alters it is color melting. This technique has been around for many years and has seen a lot of renewed interest.


What is color melting?


Color melting is a hair coloring technique used to blend balayage or highlights to the root color. This creates a calmer blend; the lines of demarcation appear more subtle. The ultimate goal of this technique is to melt the colors, so they appear uniform as though it was natural.

When done expertly, it becomes really difficult to tell where one color ends and the other begins. That's what makes this technique so unique and beautiful.
