hairspiration: tortoiseshell

So long ombre. Hello tortoiseshell. The newest hair trend seems to be similar to long-lived techniques like ombre and balayage yet more of a sophisticated approach. Of course, this Ecaille-style first
spotted in Paris, I mean, duh, starts with a richer slightly darker than your natural yet warm browns at your roots graduating down to light and much warmer tones. Think amber or honey like tortoiseshell. 

Honestly, I love it! I think it's safe to say that this style is what ombre has evolved into. It's all about the graduation of color with warm tones. Many celebrities are showing off this look with different variations of this specific style. That's what I love about it. You can have fun with the different tones of each rich color. Add some balayage pieces up towards the face to brighten things up with a bolder look or even add a few highlights throughout to get more of that blended feel to it. This style continues to be a low maintenance and it's easy to just go and start out a bit deeper and richer and then add more lightness once Spring rolls around. Or just go in to your stylist to simply add a gloss to enhance those rich colors when you are feel drab. 

What do you think about this new trend?
