Hottest Hair Trends for 2013

Hairstyles are vital in obtaining a perfect look. Hair is styled in such a way that it enhances one’s features and complements them while also taking the attention away from the undesirable features. Hair styling is an important part of grooming as the right hairstyle can transform an individual from simple and boring to mysterious and interesting. In the same way, an unsuitable or out-of-fashion hairstyle can be disastrous for many people. This makes it important to stay on top of the hairstyling trends at all times.

Ombré hair coloring

This hair trend has been showing up in the red carpet for some time now and is an excellent style for brunettes. Also known as 'surfer strands', Ombré style involves dark roots with the remaining hair becoming lighter mid-shaft with the help of the balayage hair coloring technique.

Dip-dye hair coloring

This trend has shown no signs of letting up and is still going strong in 2013. This trend basically involves leaving most parts of the hair as natural, and dyeing small portions of the hair with another color, preferably pastels, bright hues, or Ombré colors. This style can be sported by women and even men of all ages.

Brown blonde or Bronde

Bronde hair is a perfect shade that lies between brunette and blonde. It was popularized initially by Gisele Bundchen, the supermodel. And since then, many celebrities who were natural brunettes have adopted the bronde style. This is achieved by painting certain top layers of hair using color-lifting creams of 2 different volumes.

Balayage coloring

Balayage is a process that involves sweeping color into the hair with the help of a paddle. The main advantage of this technique is that the colorist has more freedom in deciding where and how to place colors on the hair. This technique has been taking over at most salons and is suitable for all kinds of hair colors, especially for blondes who have a beautiful base.

Bright hues

Bright hues have been a very popular hair coloring trend for a couple of years now, and it is still going strong. Many celebrities like Avril Lavigne and Kate Bosworth have walked the red carpet in bright dyes, streaks, and pastels. Bright hues also help many people to stand out, and people, young and old, are embracing bright colors as a way of spicing up their style.
