As the winter season slowly drifts behind us, NOW is the perfect time to get your “sexy on” for Spring. We’ve been looking at some of last season’s trends and noticed a lot of looks are carrying forward to spring, maybe even all year long. Who wants the same boring hairstyle though!? NO ONE. Luckily for you, we have a two perfect coloring techniques to add a little spice to your life.
The Ecaille Technique
This fun hair coloring technique is the newest wave of 2016, resembling the shell of a tortoise. Now I know what you are thinking, how could this possibly be a cute thing to do? Well we have the answer for you. The Ecaille technique is based from golden highlights and then combined with dark and rich caramel tones that add dimension and warmth to the hair. This is a great alternative if you don’t want to stick to the more basic techniques such as balayage or an ombre. This tortoise-shell technique combines shades of honey, amber, golden blonde, dark brown and gloss.
Just like a real tortoise shell, no two are the same. This technique is solely based on preference. You may want more golden strands or honey strands or even darker strands, who cares! The beauty is that you don’t have to look exactly like everyone else to stay on trend. Be the trendsetter of your own color.
The Hair-strobing Technique
Very similar to the makeup strobing technique, hair strobing adds shimmer and lighter shades that accent the positive. Highlights are added in the areas that are usually naturally sun-kissed followed by darker and lighter shades to add contrast and dimension. Hair strobing is the perfect way to color if you are a newbie to the coloring realm. Your stylist will be able to personalize the color to shape your face and put your best features in the spotlight.
There you have it! You don’t have to worry any longer you are now on trend! You’re welcome!
