If you are a hair color aficionado, then this isn’t the first time that you’ve heard of the “balayage” technique. This hair color technique has been combined with “ombre” coloring and is referred to as “blended ombre”. It is a highlighting technique that originated in France. Balayage is characterized by painted highlights that are very close to the natural color of the hair, which produces a more gradual color transition in the strands. This technique can create the perfect sun-kissed effect on your hair!
Ecaille aka Tortoiseshell Hair
Ecaille or tortoiseshell hair is emerging as the top hair color trend for 2015. It has been around for some time, but it has finally decided to take over ombre and step into the center stage. This highlighting technique provides a beautifully contrasted blend of colors with its use of dark and rich caramel tones along with some golden highlights.
You might find the name funny or weird, but babylights is a new favorite amongst celebrities and supermodels. In fact, it is the ideal kind of hair color for spring or summer due to the use of light hues and color tones. The reason why it works so well for the warm weather months is because it looks as if the sun lightened it! It is all about subtlety. With babylights, the highlights blend more with your base color as the tiniest bits of hair are sectioned out to be colored. Most of the color that shines through is your natural hair color. A few well placed babylights can also make your hair look healthier and the color more dynamic.
As hair color trends for 2015 are shifting towards more natural looks, vibrant reds are being upstaged by softer red tones like auburn, or reds with a hint of gold. You can take inspiration on this particular hair color from celebrities like Amy Adams, Isla Fisher, Jessica Chastain and even Kate Middleton.
Golden highlights, whether bold or subtle, add dimension, interest and warmth and seem to be a mainstay in the hair color industry, regardless of the trends. So, if you are in dilemma as of what to do, ask your hairstylist if golden highlights will work for you!
Which of these hair color trends are you excited to try in 2015?
