MELT AWAY

Marie Claire (Malaysia) - - Beauty -

Rid­ing off the balayage method is a new tech­nique known as ‘colour-melt­ing’. Don’t worry, it doesn’t ac­tu­ally in­volve melt­ing your hair. “Colour-melt­ing is the new trend that al­lows colourists to use mul­ti­ple tones of colour to cre­ate seam­less colour from root to ends, whether you are a brunette or a blonde. It cre­ates a mul­ti­di­men­sional colour ef­fect,” ex­plained Tyler Colton, a pro stylist who works with Puerto Ri­can singer Rose­lyn Sanchez, as well as Fresh off the Boat star, Con­stance Wu.

It is sim­i­lar to the balayage method of high­light­ing, but al­lows a more fluid move­ment of colours. This is done by us­ing colours from the same spec­trum and blend­ing them to­gether to look like they’re part your nat­u­ral hair colour, be it pas­tel shades, ashy tones, or even jewel hues like amethyst. “This al­lows the mul­ti­ple tones to melt to­gether and pro­duce a nat­u­ral look that re­flects dif­fer­ent tones of light seam­lessly,” added Ouidad stylist, Chad­wick Pend­ley.
