Density of the mechas
Gradient more sombre and less ombré
Californian will continue to be used, but tend to be more subtle and not as uniform as in previous seasons, but should be mixed more with natural hair, creating a more surfer aspect bleached by the sun. Therefore, the ombré is no longer used, and it is passed to the sombreé. That is, the gradient is much more subtle.
From the roots
This is another option: that the mechas are born from the top of the head.
Techniques for making Mechas
The California mechas are here to stay, but this year, they are used very degraded and soft, not as uniform as previous years. The hair should be rinsed in loose mechas and gradually towards the tips, so that the passage from the natural brown color to the lighter shades is gradual. They can be done in blond or coppery tones, both look very good on dark hair.
In the Californian procedure, the roots are not discolored, so growth is not a problem, you will not need to go to touch up the hair at the hairdresser.
The balayage mechas differ from the California ones in that the discoloration is done from the roots, trying to achieve a very soft, subtle and natural result.
Mechas melting color
This technique consists of melting two colors, creating that dark root finish to lighter shades at the tips of the hair. This is a somewhat complicated process, and is mainly used to dye hair in fantasy colors.
They are micro mechas that simulate baby hair. With this method, the hair is separated into tiny sections, perhaps only a pair of strands distributed throughout the hair and dye a shade lighter than natural hair, to mimic the appearance of the hair of the smallest.
