There was also a shift of caramel blondes to intense and bright platinum blondes. This is also the year that blues, purples, pinks, and other vibrant hair colors were introduced.
We are fast approaching the middle of 2015 and the hair color trends that started to pop up in the early months are starting to catch on and becoming a trend worldwide. Here are the color trends for 2015 and our future predictions.
1. The Balayage
We saw this trend during the last few months of 2014 but has only caught on the early month of this year. The Balayage is a far less dramatic look from our hair color of the year ombre.
The Balayage is more natural looking highlight that tries to imitate a more natural and Sunkissed looking highlights. Opting for a more natural colored highlight than those we come to know and love blonde and light highlight. This hair color is great for the summer and is an exceptional looking in long hair.
2. The Ecaille-Style
This style has been seen around runways all over the world and has yet to catch on, but our radar says it will catch on soon. This is basically an opposite of the ombre. Nope, not the reverse ombre. This hair color is about making the hair darker instead of lighter. Most salons are aware of this hair color trend, but it is best to describe the style for yourself.
The Ecaille-Style is adding in darker hair color on the roots of the hair and adding in some dark, low lights, adding shadow to the hair and creating brightness to the ends of the hair. The difference in hair color from the highlights, the roots and the rest of the hair should not be so different. The trick to this hair color is creating an illusion of light with the hair.
