Beautiful and trendy hair is the most important component of a woman’s voguish image. Nothing can change a woman’s look better than a fresh and lovely haircut. Although some of us are fond of long tresses, while others prefer short sexy hairstyles, we all try to go for something innovative and on-trend from time to time to inject some freshness into our looks. To this respect, nothing can inspire us better than the myriad of hairstyle trends spotted on the world-famous catwalks. And as we are about to enter a new season, it’s high time to get acquainted with the spring/ summer 2013 hairstyle trends and pick a new hair color, a new haircut or try to master the newest stunning hair styling techniques.
Spring/ Summer 2013 Hair Color Trends
The most stylish and natural hair color of the spring/summer 2013 corresponds to the multiple shades of chocolate. Next to this, in the major fashion capitals, we also witnessed some daring hair color solutions, seeing anime girls or charming Malvinas. So in the new warm season, you can experiment with such voguish hair colors as various shades of turquoise, lilac, blue and purple. For inspiration, look to Anna Sui or Chanel’s Cruise 2013 collection. If it’s too risky for you to dye your hair into such bold tones, you can opt for the extravagant option suggested by Chanel: what about trying an artificial wig? Picking a pastel colored short bob wig, you can embrace this new hair color trend without losing your natural hair tone.
Another charming hair color trend is brought by Oscar de la Renta, who offers not to change your image so dramatically, but just add some slight unusual color touches to the natural tone of your hair. Some thin strips of pink, red or yellow incorporated into an elegant high updo will definitely look fresh and interesting.
Still, if you are looking for some radical changes in your hair color that will not look too extravagant, you can go for the platinum blonde color with or without dark roots, which will definitely look fresh and sexy. A stunning source of inspiration is Louis Vuitton.
