WHAT'S ECAILLE ANYWAY?

July 12, 2015

 

 

It seems like we're constantly referencing color terms - like ombre, sombre, babylights, balayage, and now ecaille, otherwise known as tortoiseshell.  It's pronounced ick-eye-elle - at least I think - don't hate mail me if I'm wrong lol - I'm certainly no expert in French.  While ombre & balayage are coloring techniques, ecaille isn't so much a technique as it is a color.  Think of tortoiseshell & all the warm tones in it - golden blondes, chestnuts, mahogany, chocolate & honey to name a few.  It's very dimensional with many colors painted or balayaged onto to the hair - think Gisele Bundchen.  

 

 

 

What do you think of ecaille - or any of the coloring techniques & terms out their today?  Let me know here or over on social media.  

 

Cheers - Hal
