The newest hair buzzword is “ecaille.” It’s pronounced ik-eye-ell. Ecaille is French for “tortoiseshell” which is exactly the shades it mimics. Think caramel, amber, honey, chocolate & mahogany.
I have always loved how luxurious my tortoiseshell accessories looked. Now we can give our number one accessory (our hair) that same feel.
Ecaille is a new take to add richness and dimension to the hair. It can update hair and be incorporated with any of the current natural hair color trends such as ombré or baby-lights without doing excessive bleaching, but while still keeping some of those lighter pieces, especially around the face. It can also be done on solid colored hair. The difference between ecaille and some traditional highlights & lowlights is a toned down or “blurred” root to keep with the “natural” look which eases maintenance and staying between 1-3 levels of the natural hair color. Many celebrities have already had the ecaille color for some time, Jessica Biel and Kloé Kardashian to name a couple.With the rise of the youthful hair color trends and variations, ecaille has arrived to add new gorgeous, gentle, and natural looking multi-dimension to lackluster strands.
