What Are The Differences Between Root Taps and Color Melts?

Melted hair Color by Morgan, blonde hair specialist At Andre Richard Salon

๐—–๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐— ๐—ฒ๐—น๐˜ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฅ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ง๐—ฎ๐—ฝ

An experienced hair colorist can immediately explain the difference between a root tap and color melt. If you find these 2 topics confusing please continue reading. “Lived in” hair is a real thing in current hair trends and techniques to achieve the right look are often confused. Root tapping gives new meaning to "get my roots done". 

The technique blends in highlights and balayage at the root line to give a natural grow in or “rooted look” so when your natural hair begins to grow in everything then remains blended. Color melting is a technique that is used to blend highlights or balayage into the root color to create a gradual transition and subtler lines of demarcation. Usually 3 or more colors are overlapped to blend the shades and any lines. The color melt should be seamless! Color melts can be done with any color, the hair colors don’t even need to be natural colors. Bring on the fashion shades and let's melt!

Questions Answered About Root Taps and Color Melting:

  • Is a root tap the same as a color melt?

  • Why is a root tap confused with a color melt?

  • What is a color melt?

  • What is a root tap? 

  • When would a hair colorist use a root tap? 

  • When would a hair colorist use a color melt? 

  • Do color melts need to be done with natural looking hair colors? 

 If we didn't answer your question please send us a message and we will always be happy to answer questions!

Blonde Class For Specialists In Philadelphia


Blonde Specialists In Philadelphia

Our commitment to education at André Richard Hair Salon and providing excellent service to our clients is #1.  

Hair Blonding Class at Andre Richard Salon 

Ryan Rodgers - Master Stylist @phillysalon gave us a detailed class on the lightening systems offered by Redken and at ARS along with some foil highlighting techniques.  Ryan is a Redken Artist.

That means when he is not with us creating magic behind the chair at ARS he is visiting salons in the tri-state area teaching Redken hair color and products to industry professionals. 

Some team members of ARS gathered on a Sunday evening bringing their talent and questions to a foil blonding workshop. 

The team broke into groups with specific assignments to gather information about their topic of blonding. Powder, oil, and cream lighteners are all a part of Redken and André Richard Salon's hair bleaching and hair lifting tools. 

After each group gathered and researched they presented the facts they pulled from the Redken guide book. 


Then we applied the color in an assigned highlighting pattern that Ryan gave them. 

In the end we were able to present questions and answers to be properly armed with what type of lightening product we will use and the foil pattern best suited for YOU the best client for the best hair salon in Philadelphia!

Color Melting With Redken City Beats In Philadelphia

Color Melting- Do or Don’t?

Hair Color MeltingTake it from us: we know a thing or two about a busy lifestyle!  So, if you’re running around from dawn until dusk -  shouldn’t your hairstyle work with your lifestyle? Color Melting is the answer to your prayers! It’s the process of creating a natural blend throughout your hair, and it’s easy to maintain so you can rock your roots, without anyone really noticing or be bold – and add a bright color at your hair’s helm!




First off, what is Color Melting?

Color Melting uses two or three shades and diffuses them together. The 

Color Melting With Redken City Beats In Philadelphia

mixture blurs any type of traditional line color. Usually, hues are in the same palette or family in order to achieve the most natural blend between shades.

Various Color Melts: You have the freedom

The amazing thing about Color Melting is that there are endless possibilities! Whether you want shades of browns and golds for autumn, or wish to make a statement with palettes of pink in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, you have complete freedom! You can go from dark to light or light to dark. For a low maintenance hairstyle: you can keep the crown of the hair a deeper so that it mirrors the natural hair. Then, as the color works down the strands, it will gradually become lighter. Or to make more of a statement, you may opt to start brighter at the roots and work to darker ends.

Hair Color Melting Examples

Casting Call 

We are hosting an upcoming workshop and you could be our star! We are on the hunt for natural blondes who would like to be pretty in pink! If you’re interested, message us right away!

The Best Balayage and Babylights Workshop | Philadelphia

Redken came to Andre Richard Salon in Philadelphia to give an updated approach to balayage and babylight highlights. 



Balayage became known sometime in the 1970's and over the past 10 years has been a rising trend. We began teaching balayage and ombré techniques at ARS in 2010. Babylights is a foil technique that takes a lot of time but the results are natural like a babys blonde!

We believe that education is the foundaton of our success and keeps us the best salon in Philadelphia.

Redken sent in a top educator from NYC. Arielle helped us with placement and also focused on which Redken lightener to use for the desired result. b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC_2281.jpg

The team focused on technique and instead of using live models we used professional mannequins to maintain the classroom atmosphere. We were able to ask questions and focus on the technique. 



The best part of hands on is we get our hands in there and feel what we are learning.

Our rising talent is always encouraged to learn and jump in. 













The best part was the group collaberation at the end to discuss what we learned in class.
