Ever since we saw the emerging Ecaille trend in January 2015, we have received a few noteworthy Ecaille haircolor submissions in MODERN’s User Submissions section.  

The trend features dark, rich caramel tones that add dimension and warmth to the hair. The great thing about Ecaille is that it can vary look to look, just like an actual tortoise shell. Have you tried out an Ecaille look on a client yet? Try adding shades of honey, amber, golden blonde and dark brown.

In the slideshow, the first look was created by Ashlie Zufall (which she created on her first try!) If you would like to submit your looks, you can here.

  • Base Color: Goldwell 5N w 10 vol (root)
  • Comb through
  • Balayage: Matrix Light Master with 20 vol
  • Process hair for 30 minutes: “I kept applying the lightner to the ends to ensure the bleach didn't dry out,” she says.
  • Wash/Shampoo: Toned with Goldwell 10BP for 5 minutes
  • Rinsed hair
  • Condition hair with Smooth Sexy Hair Coconut Hair Mask and finished with all Aquage styling products.

From Foiled and Damaged To Luscious Red

Maggie Mulhern | October 1, 2017

"This client had been doing full foils for years, and her hair showed it," says Tiffinie Morton (@hairbytiffinie). "We had been working on getting her hair healthier and decided to try something new. She initially wanted to go to a warm level 5 but I talked her into trying this to ease her into being darker since she had been blonde for so long." Details here.
