The Newest Hair Color Trend for 2015

Good bye ombré, dip dye, and vibrant color trends of 2014!

Since the start of 2015 you may have been hearing about "tortoise shell" hair color. This trend is called Ecaille and has been trending in Paris since the start of 2015. While ombré and other more bold trends ruled 2014 things are making a slight shift in the new year! We are seeing more of a natural graduation in color with more balayage creating those sun kissed highlights you got as a kid.

Although ombré will always be a trend in hair color, 2015 is beckoning for change and ecaille will keep you on the cutting edge of trends for the seasons! 

While sharing similar traits to ombré, ecaille is the more sophisticated version of the trend you know and love. Think of it as ombré's "darker side". It's slightly richer playing with smooth caramel hues, golden highlights, and lots of shine. You can also pair this with balayage highlights for a truly multi-dimensional bombshell look. This is suitable for all hair color types since it plays off your natural color giving you a more natural grow out with less color maintenance.

When choosing your color make sure that it compliments your skin tone and eye color to ensure the richness of the total look. Check out these celebrities that have already been sporting the trend. These babes have been light in the past but no one can argue that warming up the tone and going a bit darker has left them looking chic and amazing!
