Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hair Color Trends
As the weather is getting cold and slush, everyone starts appreciating warmth and comfort even more. Therefore, it’s not surprising at all to see mainly warm hair colors this fall. If you want to add warmth to your cold season image, follow the designers’ advice and opt for various shades of blonde or soft chestnut hair colors for naturally darker hair. The punk rock hairstyle trends of the new season also let fashionisers dye their hair in tar black color.
Despite the strong influence of the ‘80s style on the fashion and hair trends, this season avoid dyeing your hair in such bold and bright shades as green, purple or pink. The new fall/ winter 2013-2014 hair color trends place maximum accent on natural, strong and classic looks. To this end, Rodarte is the provocative exception, who decided to bring the bright gradient fire orangy yellow hair color to fall 2013. Aside from this, you’ll see only classy colors in almost all the other fashion collections showcased in the major fashion capitals.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hair Parting Trends
Since simple hair parting can change a lot in a look, it’s not surprising to see hair parting trends each season. This fall, central hair parting is the hit, as it is seen at Carolina Herrera, Guy Laroche, Just Cavalli, Isabel Marant and others. On the other hand, side hair parting and hair combed back sleekly or with volume aren’t that common this season. However, the latter options are also acceptable, if you look better this way. To this end, you can find inspiration in Kenzo, Hermès or Giambattista Valli.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trends
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #1: Straight Hairstyles: Loose, straight hair holds its firm position in the hairstyle trends already for a few season. This isn’t much surprising, since straight hair suits all women without any exception. Moreover, it doesn’t require much effort for styling. No matter you have a round face or an oval one, long flowing straight hair will accentuate your natural beauty. Straight hair can be seen at Versace, DKNY, Altuzarra and others.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #2: Crazy Voluminous Hairstyles: Next to sleek straight hair, the fall 2013 hairstyle trends also bring crazy voluminous hair, often greased back. Coming from the distant ‘60s, these hairstyles become the favorite of many women, both those born with thick and lush hair and those, who take much effort to artificially create voluminous hair. There are many ways and cosmetic products that help to transform dull thin hair into chic hair with crazy volume (Learn How to Style Wavy Hair). Especially trendy this season is voluminous ripple hair, as seen at Just Cavalli. Other voluminous retro hairstyles were spotted at Marc by Marc Jacobs, Bottega Veneta, Manish Arora, Loewe and others.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #3: Curly Hairstyles: As we say voluminous hair, we certainly cannot pass by chic locks and curls indifferent (Learn How to Style Curls). Curly hair is a big fall 2013 hair trend and it comes in the most diverse variations, from lush cinematic curls in the style of the ‘40s as seen at Manish Arora and Bottega Veneta (Learn How to Style Natural Waves), to light, carefully arranged neat curls (St. John, Rochas) and mischievous locks (L’Wren Scott, Marc by Marc Jacobs).
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #4: Shiny Wet Hairstyles: Although wet hair is more appropriate for summer, when it’s hot outside and you are ready to pour a bucket of water on your head, surprisingly, many designers used the effect of wet hair for fall 2013. If in summer it’s appropriate to say this is an “after the beach” hairstyle, in winter it gets the name of “after the shower hair”. The main advantage of wet hair is that it can be styled within a few minutes and it looks maximum romantic and effortless. The effect of wet hair was applied on both long and short hair, on the entire length of the hair or on some part of it, like on the area down from the ear lines. Wet hair was seen during the fashion shows of Balmain, Zuhair Murad, Prada, Marni, Oscar de la Renta, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Lanvin and others.
How to Create Wet Hair Effect: Since fall 2013 is going to be way too wet, learn how to style wet hair. Wash your hair and dry it just a little bit with your towel. On your damp hair, apply special hair product for wet effect and massage your head and hair, creating curls with your fingers. Let your hair dry naturally without using a hair dryer.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #5: Extremely Short Hairstyles: Surely not everyone is fond of long tresses, so no wonder short hairstyles are also very trendy this fall. Apparently minimalism in fashion also had an influence on hairstyles this year, as we can mainly see extremely short hairstyles this year. Best of all, such haircuts don’t require too much for styling. Such hairstyles are ideal for women, whose natural hair is devoid of volume. Keep in mind that pixie cuts don’t flatter everyone, so you’d better consult a hairstylist before opting for this look. For short hairstyle inspiration, look to Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Matthew Williamson, No. 21 and others.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #6: Casual Hairstyles: Nothing can compete with effortless casual hairstyles, when it comes to smart day-to-day looks. Wind blown casual hairstyles look simple and practical and don’t require too much effort for styling. Such careless hairstyles make a big fall 2013 hair trend, being spotted at Proenza Schouler, Lela Rose, Francesco Scognamiglio and others.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #7: Hairstyles with Bangs: Looking for the best hairstyles that will add sweetness and girlishness to your face? Think bangs, please! Hairstyles with bangs are super-voguish this fall and you have quite a wide choice. The best thing about bangs is that they refresh your look without making you go for radical changes, like having your long hair cut into a short style. Almost any bang style is on trend this season, from straight and thick fringes and side-swept bangs to slightly tousled bangs, medium length, short and long bangs, rounded bangs in the style of the ‘70s. If you choose the correct style of bangs for your face shape, you will visually look younger and brighter. Hairstyles with bangs were seen at Louis Vuitton, Michael van der Ham, Emilio Pucci, Lanvin, Marni, St. John, Chanel, Cacharel, Kezno, Anna Sui and others.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #8: Braided Hairstyles: As long as you want to create innocent, girlish and romantic looks, think braids! From effortless side braids and milkmaid braids to half-up braided hairstyles and stylish braided updos, easy braided hairstyles are trendy this fall too. Some designers used simple head ribbons to decorate the braided hairstyles. For braids inspiration, look to Valentino, RED Valentino, Rodarte, Viktor & Rolf.
Fall/ Winter 2013-2014 Hairstyle Trend #9: Ponytails, Buns, Knots & Updos: Other trendy women hairstyles 2014 are all sorts of ponytails, buns and updos. Ponytails can be high or low, but in both cases they are elegant and very simple this fall. Especially fashionable is tying the ponytail not with an elastic band, but a lock of hair, which makes the look more natural and effortless. Ponytails were used a lot at Donna Karan, Lanvin, Diesel Black Gold (grungy wet ponytails), Moschino, Stella McCartney, Lacoste, Alexander Wang, Jil Sander (minimalist sleek ponytails), Ralph Lauren, John Galliano and others.
No less trendy and spectacular are all sorts of updos, ranging from ‘60s inspired retro cinematic updos as spotted at Alberta Ferretti, dramatic voluminous updos like the one seen at Loewe and the wet chignons of Christian Dior to the elegant twisted buns of Peter Som, the oversized ballerina buns of Nina Ricci and the retro untruly knots of Cacharel.

If you like extra attention, you can opt for such punk rock hairstyles, drawing inspiration from Jean Paul Gaultier, Vivienne Tam, Fendi, Haider Ackermann and others.
On the other hand, Givenchy comes up not with punk rock hairstyles, but instead new retro hairstyles with a Gothic touch. Such hairstyles definitely deserve to be called some of the most outstanding fall/ winter 2013-2014 hairstyle trends!
