Trend alert: Colour your hair like Gisele Bündchen
Listen up, because there’s been a shift in the follicle forecast. 2014 was all about balayage, but a more natural trend is on the horizon for 2015: the ecaille tortoiseshell ombré.
It involves elevating the natural colours of your hair by introducing caramel and golden highlights. Think a slightly richer and darker version of your natural hair colour, paired with golden, honey colours and a whole lotta shine. While balayage features a dramatic change in colour, this version of ombré has softer, more blended hues.
If you want to join them, here are some helpful tips about what to ask for next time you visit the salon:
- Just in case your stylist doesn’t know of the new technique yet, bring in a picture (or five).
- Explain the key elements to make your vision a little clearer. Say you’d like to darken the base colour and add some serious gloss.
- Tell your colourist to focus on vibrant, face-framing highlights for the front while adding softer pieces around the rest of your head. Remember to ask for various tones. While you’re not looking for ombré, you are after a graduation from dark at the roots to light at the end.
