Hair color has been soft lately with balayage and ombre being so popular. Although the transition from soft to light is a trend that will not be leaving anytime soon, expect to see a bolder placement in 2017. The new trend will almost be a cross between color blocking and ombre.

While sombres and ombres were huge trends throughout the past few years, there’s been more of a shift to even softer transitions. This is called color melting and it’s when a colorist applies several colors to the hair and blends them seamlessly. This means no harsh lines or highly visible transitions from color to color.
FOR THOSE WHO WANT THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS:
