Living with amnesia

Figurative language.
simile, allusion or metaphor??

He pulls Deborah to him, then whirls her around, sending her strawberry-blond curls flying.
metaphor as Deborah's curls are being compared to strawberries that are pretty and attractive.

Any new information given to him melts as fast as snowflakes on the skin, leaving no trace.
simile as it uses 'as' and also that information given to Clive is quick to forget thus it is being compared to snowlakes on the skin which means that informtion transmitted is quickly forgotten as snowflakes are melted quickly if it is placed on the skin.
