Hair Trends for 2013

These days Runway shows are not solely meant to present women’s fashion apparel and accessories. Designers work closely with hair and makeup teams to bring together a complete look for their shows. Celebrities on the red carpet also bring forward trends that many look to emulate when it comes to hair style. A brand new year and the anticipation of a new spring season are two great reasons to want to “refresh” your look.

One Style at a Time is bringing you a recap of what the top hair trends are for this year. For Spring/Summer 2013 there were many hair styles that included long wavy locks and deep side parts. This coincided with a few of the looks we saw at this year’s Golden Globes (Isla Fisher, Jessica Alba). If you love a touch of vintage you are just in luck. One of the hottest looks is inspired by the 1920’s era (think Great Gatsby) with retro curls and waves.

Unless you are living under a rock by now you may have heard Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton have updated their hair cuts by adding Bangs. The actresses Kerri Washington, Jessica Biel and Jennifer Lopez have also been photographed donning bangs as of late.
Long wavy styled hair has been a predominant choice for quite some time. This continues on for Spring/Summer 2013. However, the media went into a frenzy when Vogue’s favorite supermodel Karlie Kloss cut her long locks to a light, layered swingy bob back in November 2012. This cut has now been named the “Haircut of the Year” by the New York Times.  The Bob cut has also been seen in actresses like Marion Cotillard, Julianne Hough and Gabrielle Union. The pixie cut is the shortest and boldest of all these trends. One lady that carries this look to perfection is Halle Berry. Anne Hathaway also has embraced her short cut.

Another style that has taken the runway by storm including the Tory Burch Spring show was the Braid. From romantic to bohemian braids, it is one the most popular styles this year. The side fishtail braid is one that has been worn by celebs like Jennifer Hudson, Eva Longoria and Blake Lively. If you are a fan of the classic ponytail then there is something her for you as well. The low ponytail combined with the deep side part was seen at the Jil Sander, Michael Kors and Jenny Packham shows.

So from the very long to shorter and edgy what would be your choice of hair style? Which style suits you the best? Which of these hair trends would you be willing try?
