One of the hair color trends that will be popular this year is the ecaille. Ecaille or also known as ‘tortoiseshell hair’ is a soft, natural looking hair color created by blending multiple shades, such as caramels, chestnuts, golden blondes and chocolates. It is a hair technique which is a like a combination of ombre and balayage, that looks much like the ombre, but slightly more sophisticated and without harsh lines.
Ecaille is the best way to warm up and add dimension to your hair and the trick to achieving this tortoiseshell effect is to layer beautiful tones of color so that the hair looks natural. Warm shades like golden caramel, chestnut and chocolate are mainly used for this hair color technique, and all of them work pretty well with women who have a warm brunette or golden blonde base. Below we have chosen several celebrities who have pulled off this hair color trend that may get you inspired to try it too. Check them out!
If you decide to try this hair color trend, make sure it suits your skin tone. If you are fair or pale, you should opt for golden tones and if you are olive or have some red tones, some ash can give your skin a more natural, sun-kissed look. You should avoid going too bright, because it will wash you out and can appear quite unnatural. The ecaille is great for brunettes as well as for blondes. Blondes may need to deepen their base color a bit to really get the contrast and richness they need. But this won’t be the case with brunettes, because they already have darker roots, and they should only add some balayage highlights to achieve the ecaille look.
The ecaille is more like a naturally sun bleached hair color, and as such it doesn’t require any special treatment. So, you don’t have to get back to the salon every month. You may only ask to get a clear gloss for shine. This will save you some time and money for not doing a special treatment like you should do when dying your hair.
