    Here's What You Need To Know About "Color-Melting" Your Hair

    It's how everyone gets that ~natural-looking~ ombre.

    If you've ever been on Pinterest, you may be familiar with ombre hair, the transitional color from darker hair on top to a light, often bleached-blonde hair color on the bottom.

    Over time, the ombre got a lil' more subtle.

    And now, we've reached peak hair goals: COLOR-MELTING.

    "Melting is a technique that blends the highlights with the base color of the hair so you don't have any harsh lines," George Papanikolas, Matrix StyleLink stylist, tells BuzzFeed Life.

    See how smooth that transition is? You can't tell where one color begins and another ends.

    "The difference between this and regular highlights is that you use multiple shades to create the 'melted' effect," Papanikolas says.

    It's a technique that makes literally any hair color look like it ~could~ have happened naturally.

    See what I mean?

    Melting all of the colors together makes the final result look beautiful AF.

    So the next time you go to the salon...

    ...ask to have your color melted.
