What Exactly is the Ecaille Hair Color Trend?

Posted: Friday, July 22nd, 2016

Also known as “tortoiseshell technique,” this hot new hair trend gives your hair immediate dimension. 2016 is all about richening your hair color and the ecaille hair color trend is one of the newest ways to accomplish this look.

This trend builds off of the ombre and sombre trends of the last few years and essentially blends both of these techniques into one. The result is a soft and natural-looking hair color that is created by blending multiple shades, including golden blondes, caramels, chestnuts and chocolates.

Similar to an ombre, the ecaille look has roots that blend well into the rest of the hair. This is great news for women who are looking for a low-maintenance hairstyle. Trips to the salon can extend far past the 4-6 weeks needed for upkeep on high-maintenance color. Plus, for any women who currently have and ombre color, ecaille hair is an easy transition and really perfect for summer.

The trick to achieving this look is to layer different beautiful tones of color so that the hair looks natural, harmoniously blending dark and light hair. On women who have a golden blonde or warm brunette base to start, your stylist will likely incorporate warm shades like golden caramel, chestnut and chocolate tones.
