2013 Hair Trends to Look For

Braids with a Twist
We predict an increased demand for beautiful braids- whether it’s simple or intricate, for a wedding or a walk in the park, braids will continue to be a well sought after hairstyle in 2013. Don’t think that every braid has to be perfect; in fact, we think that the idea of the ‘messy braid’ is here to stay!

Pastel Colors
Be on the lookout for an increased demand in fashion hair colors! This 2013 hair trend is what we would call, “unnatural,” hair colors. We are not just talking a few pieces of bright hair on the ends or face (that’s cool, too!), but look for clients asking for all over fashion colors, especially pastels! The Fashion hair color we predict to be the hottest in 2013 is PURPLE!

Red Hair Color
This is a style we see continuing into 2013, as being a redhead certainly does turn heads! Look for all types of red hair color demands, as we see many individuals asking for fashion reds, copper reds, fiery reds, and maybe a mixture of all three! Overall, we are seeing a return to vintage style and trends of the 1930s, 60s, and more as we further observe 2013 hair trends, colors, and styles.
2013 Hair Trends

Vintage Curls and Waves
We said previously a return to vintage hairstyles is on the way, and we meant it! This look is elegant, classic, and is making a strong trend upward. What’s even better? This look can be glammed up for a beautiful wedding hair do or made casual with a headband or scarf! And personally, we’ve been waiting for pin curls to make their comeback!

Bangin' Bangs!
Maybe you're a bit more on the conservative side, and are not quite ready to be completely bold in 2013 – and that’s okay, we can still try a new hair trend, like bangs! The demand for bangs, both soft and edgy, will continue to be on the rise. Allow us to help you choose the right bangs by having us take a look at your facial features – helping to decide which of your features you want to enhance, and what you wish to hide!
2013 Hair Trends

Short Edgy Cuts
While there will still be plenty of ladies growing out their locks to rock those highly soft after beach waves, but we predict a sharp increase in the amount of short hairstyles present in 2013. Whether it’s a hard rocker look like, Miley Cyrus, or a softer Michelle Williams/Ann Hathaway-type look, be prepared to whip out those thinning shears! P.S. Those quiffs aren’t going anywhere!
2013 Hair Trends

Sleek, Smooth, Long Hair with Deep Side or Middle Parts
While voluptuous curls will no doubt still hold interest, we see another flashback to the late 60s, early 70s upon us! Headbands already made their comeback, of course this long hair trend look was to follow. Think long, sleek, sexy hair paired with a deep side part, middle part, or bangs!
2013 Hair Trends

Sandy, Smoky, Mink-like Hair Shades
Ok, doll. We said it before, but we’ll say it again – Vintage hairstyles are in! This isn’t just limited to a haircut, but those soft sandy hair colors are going to be requested in your salon countless times in 2013. Get ready to break out those ashes, and gray and silver concentrate, this is a new hair trend that’ll have your clients looking like natural beauties!
2013 Hair Trends

Alright, most of us by now know of the popular hair color trend, Ombré. No matter how overdone you feel this look is, we predict it is here to stay in 2013. With so many various options out there for Ombré, this hair trend can still be fun and different!
2013 Hair Trends
Pompadours and Quiffs
This unisex hairstyle will continue to be all the rage in 2013 – men and women alike will be demanding this in your salon’s chair as this is another hairstyle that will be making its comeback. Look for different hair style modifications

Hair Color Trends for 2013

Here are some examples of the natural, healthy, rich tones that will dominate the hair color scene in 2013.

Bold, rich, deep red tones will be a mainstay for hair color in 2013. These shades, known for eliciting a youthful and fun feeling from women, will prove to be a perfect match for women with cooler skin tones and light freckles. Adding deeper shades of blue will add to the bold appeal of deep reds and provide a formidable base for her hair’s luster to reflect from. Watch for reds to favor deeper tones and steer away from the “strawberry” blondes of years gone past.

Because blonde will continue to be the most popular hair color of 2013, the colorists that can achieve truly bold, natural, and healthy looking blondes will be well rewarded and in demand. Good Hair Colorists understand how bad an unnatural blonde color looks. So, Hair Colorists with excellent color analysis skills will stand out. Also, creating healthy looking blondes that are still bold and undamaged by the lightening process will become ever more important as a new emphasis on healthy looking hair emerges.


Because brown is a hair color which suits most skin tones, the fine tuned attention on natural looking hair color will keep both brown and brunette highly popular. No matter which brown hair color your client chooses, depending on what suits their skin complexion and personality best, from dark chocolate brown to caramel, they should consider rich, deeper, undertones. Select a nice coffee, toffee or caramel brown hair color depending on what works best for them to maintain their hair in a great condition and radiate beauty.

Raven black will be a particularly trendy hair color in 2013 especially if it is kept looking healthy. If your clients have fair skin, they’re sure to look radiantly gorgeous. But be sure that this mysterious yet inviting color meets their personality and style. Jet black hair is not for the faint at heart. Also, be sure to recommend a hair color maintenance system like Organic Care Systems that not only preserve the color and prevent fade, but also maintains the health and luster of their hair which will both be extremely important with this deepest of colors.
