HOW-TO: Urban Cool Color Melt

A Color Melter sponge as the application tool creates a cool base with internal color melting.

This modern color look is inspired by Alexander Wang, who mixed luxurious fabrics with pops of color, bold patterns and retro styling. Deep brunette melts into the coolest berry and red tones from Schwarzkopf Professional Igora Royal for a subtle color stretch.
