While ultra-vibrant hair and dramatic ombre ruled 2014, we are starting to see a shift in the follicle forecast. As we step into the new year we're beginning to see a more NATURAL TREND attached to those tresses. The leading force toward this minimal vibe: balayage, increasingly popular highlights that aim to mimic those sun kissed highlights you got as a kid. And now, piggy backing off balayage, we're seeing another similar, albeit darker, technique that we're sure is about to go mane-stream over the course of 2015: introducing Ecaille ( a.k.a. "tortoise shell" in French).
With smooth caramel tones, the ecaille technique is a slightly richer and darker version of your natural color paired with golden highlights and a whole lot of shine. Pop some balayage highlights on top of this rich shade and a gloss to keep it rich, and you've got a multidimensional, bombshell look.
Hairstyles for 2015 are totally natural and the top style trend is chopping off inches and creating a textured and tousled look, sectioning off layers, curling hair away from face, mid to ends. This gives your style an unfinished beach look. You want to have an enhanced natural look, and creating a natural subtle color and hairstyle require a talented stylist who understands the goal and is well versed in the Balayage technique to achieve the best possible results.
