Hair Trends For 2013

Feeling like changing something in your looks? Changing your hairstyle (or a haircolor) can add a lot to your looks.

There are specific hairstyles making it big in 2013, and then there are groupings of styles or themes that really make a broader impact , earning the label of hair trends for 2013. The following are a certainly must have that suits your style and needs this year.

Bob hairstyles

In 2013, bob hairstyles are making their mark. They’re sprouting up on model influencers – from Karlie Kloss to Edie Campbell and Aline Weber – appearing in chin length, fringed versions as well as longer bobs that brush the shoulders. The short hair cut of 2013, the bob is back in a versatile and modern way.

When the time is right and you need a change, there’s nothing quite as liberating as chopping off your hair into a bob. This process of renewal leaves you feeling fresh – courtesy both the change in style and the dead ends left lying on the salon floor. In 2013 the bob again surfaces as a trend – both with a fringe / bangs and without. So if you’re after a new hairstyle for 2013 and beyond, and want to brave the bob, this may just be the time.


Long hair

At the other end of the extreme when it comes to haircuts in 2013: ultra long hair. Away from the bob, this is the best way for a hair cut to make a big impact. The trend on the runways suggests a hair length that just reaches or covers the breasts, since the look hints at something a little mythological (think ancient goddesses and mermaids) – anything longer starts to cross over into medieval maiden territory and begins to lose its raw sex-appeal.

Very long hair in 2013 can be cut in two main ways: blunt, or layered. The truth is that either can work equally well. If your hair is straight and all one length, a blunt will mean you can work both a straight, sleek look and a more textured one.

If you have some shorter layers  you’ve still got the right foundations for an on-trend long hairstyle. Since a lot of runway looks use extensions to achieve the right length (meaning there will always be some shorter, natural layers showing through) and because the most on-trend styles for long hair are the ones with plenty of volume and texture, it doesn’t matter if your hair is cut with some layers.

That said, the long 2013 hair cut isn’t one you want to thin out too much – remember it’s best with volume and texture – so the most on-trend way to have it cut is with a few choppy layers, not completely layered all over.

Whether side parted, center-parted, curled or straight, it’s worth knowing a few basic textured hairstyles for long hair.
