It's no secret—hairstylists share a universal love for balayage for a long list of reasons. Application ease and the ability to create personalized color likely top the list, but perhaps the best part about the color technique is how gracefully it grows out. With no harsh lines of demarcation, incorporating another color technique for a refresh has never been easier. 

Jordan Domizio (@jordan_kindel_salon), a salon owner and stylist in Milford, CT had a client in need of a refresh for a balayage she had done a few months back. Rather than repainting, Domizio wanted to bring some life back to the color with a quick and easy melt. Here's how she did it. 

Get the look:

  • Apply Schwarzkopf royal 5-0, 4-0 equal parts with 20-volume developer on the root.
  • Apply 7-4, 7-65 equal parts with 6-volume Schwarzkopf Vibrance as a glaze.
  • Process for 25 minutes and rinse with cool water.
