So I’ve seen a lot of new hair trends floating around for 2015 (gray hair… say what?!) but the one that caught my interest the most was Ecaille, otherwise known as Tortoiseshell. It’s characterized by pairing your typical golden highlights with darker, rich caramel tones to give your hair a warmer, more dimensional look. The look incorporates shades of honey, amber, golden blonde, dark brown paired with gloss and because you include so many different shades it allows for a lot of variability from person to person to customize it however they wish. You might make yours more blonde while someone else may want theirs with more caramel tones. The key to making it different than ombré is focusing on the rich colors and asking to blend in the lighter highlights rather than having that color-blocked distinction.
I’ve really been loving all the pictures I’ve seen so far and I’ve kind of been tempted to give it a shot myself. I’ve had my simple blonde highlights for years now and I think some rich dimensional tones in my light brown hair might be fun to try! I’m a little nervous about making such a big change but the more I see the trend going around the more I want to join in!
What do you guys think of the Ecaille/Tortoiseshell look? And what other 2015 hair trends have you wanted to try?
