As far as color, highlights are creeping back up to the roots for more natural dimension.  For more on this season's color trend, visit: The Evolution of the Ombre.

Kerastase Densifique Minoxidil was first introduced to Europe in 2014.  We are usually  jealous that Europe is ahead of our fashion and beauty industry, however this time grateful that they have tested the product and reported amazing results.

The Evolution of the Ombré


In 2012, ombré climbed to the top of everyone's "to-do" list.  It seemed almost mindless to make the transition.  Women raved about light locks and ease of maintenance.  This French-termed hair trend featured a darker root and  swift graduation of a lighter shade down to the tips.



Ombré was turned down a notch in 2013.  Instead of a more prominent graduation, the balayage started to creep and blend it's way up further towards the roots.  The outcome?  A more subtle ombré that became the transition into 2014's hair color trend. 



We blur the lines even more with 2014's hottest hair trend, sombré.  With this look you still get to enjoy forgiving roots, and also beautiful sun-kissed highlights paired with rich caramel tones.  It looks like "au naturel" color is becoming a fan favorite...


Just when you thought the beauty industry had exhausted their options with a balayage techniques, they surprise us with yet another variation.  (To add, balayage stems from the French term balayer, "to sweep." In this technique, the colorist hand paints the highlights instead of using the conventional foil.)

We introduce you to 2015's leading hair color, écaille.  This technique features golden highlights and darker caramel tones.  Unlike sombré, écaille enhances  the darker dimensional tones.  What makes this trend so versatile?  Écaille gives colorists the opportunity to customize the various hues.  The key is to focus on rich shades, and let the highlights flow naturally.  

So why are we pulling back the reins on the original ombré?  Sitting down with Timothy Pamment, he responded with a question, "Well, what does ombré mean?"  

Ombré stems from the word "ombrer," which means "to shade."  

"It is only natural that we go back to the root of the word, and make our highlights more subtle and organic."  He brought up a great point!


Très interested in this color option, but perplexed on how to pronounce it to your colorist?  You're not alone, so we found this video!
