Hair Trends For 2013
The latestare out. As 2012 comes to a close, beauty industry trendsetters are looking forward to trends in the New Year that will close out the decade. And the verdict is in— , earthy tones with lots of dimension are the new beautiful.
Beauty experts and fashion consultants everywhere agree—thick, chunky highlights are a thing of the past – as are brightly colored and contrasting streaks. While the staple colors of blond, brunette, and red will never go out of style, this season’s take on the traditional colors has a little more depth and a lot more verve.
Natural is the byword of 2013 but it’s a far cry from the old, flat blonds and browns of the 90s. A gorgeous, multi-dimensional blond is created by weaving several different shades of blond through the hair to get a blond like Cameron Diaz. It’s a little more expensive, but the end result is well worth it. Lowlights and two-toned blond color make a more sophisticated blond.
And, contrary to everything women have worshiped for the past decade, dirty blond may be the new hot color. Tommy Hilfiger’s fall/winter 2012-2013 fashion show featured girls with darker shades of blond in soft, feminine styles. But here again, the key is natural—so dark roots are out.
Brunettes make their statement this season with warm brown hues paired with subtle golden highlights. Jessica Biel’s warm caramel brown compliments her golden skin tones, but even pale girls can be show-stopping in brunette (think of Anne Hathaway and Audrey Tautou). The key is natural color with subtle highlights. And for added depth, a slightly darker color at the roots and underlayers can be smashing.
Auburn is a big hit for the 2012/2013 winter season. Here, too, natural and earthy are the watchwords. Lighter reds achieve dimension with golden highlights that make the color flicker with warmth. Amy Adams’ strawberry blond is one example.
And if natural is the word for color, it’s also the growing trend for products fromto hair color. -based hair color is fast becoming a thing of the past, with salons everywhere switching over to gentler, plant-based alternatives that work even better.
