Products Used:


Color Melt #1:

Color Melt #2:


  • Section off 2-inches from the front hairline, then create a ½-inch section from that larger 2-inch section. This will leave you with two sections within one so that you can create two color melts. 

  • Apply Color Melt #1 on the larger 2-inch section. 

  • Then apply Color Melt #2 on the ½-inch section of “the money piece.”

  • Repeat Color Melt #1 by applying on the ½-inch section of “the money piece.” 

Pro Tip:

Towel dry hair and apply PRAVANA Truity Thermal Blow Dry Cream for a smooth, soft blowout to really show off your newly created color canvas.
