So more wintery weather may have been forecast but spring is supposed to be on it’s way and if you want a new look this spring why not start with your hair? A new hair cut is the perfect way to revamp your look and if you don’t know what option to go for why not look to the catwalks? So here is Shumaila’s guide to the best spring/summer 2013 hair trends.
Play it straight
It’s time to dig out the straigtheners again as one key trend on the Spring/Summer catwalks was poker straight hair. From Derek Lam to Lacoste hair was worn uber straight on the runways. However, if you are going to try the trend make sure your hair is in the best possible condition as you don’t want it to look dry like straw. Therefore, if you want to give it a go why not speak to your stylist about a conditioning treatment so it looks its best.
However, if super straight hair isn’t your style you could opt for an ultra glam blow dry or a super stylish retro style which were seen on the catwalks of Celene, Diane Von Furstenberg, Giorgio Armani, Isabel Marant, Moschino and Marc Jacobs
The key to the look is making sure that it has lots of volume so things like loose waves are perfect for to achieve a glossy finish. Or if you prefer an updo opt for a gorgeous retro style (think Mad Men) like a great beehive.
The bun is back
One hair trend that is hanging round has to be the bun and this spring/summer it is all about the low-slung bun. At Chanel the models wore beautiful low slung buns with a chic centre parting while at Versace the look was undone with loose buns.
Don’t forget the pony
Perhaps one of the easiest spring/summer catwalk trends to master at home is the low slung ponytail. While 2012’s pony tails were high and sporty this year the look is far more laid back with the pony at the nape of the neck.
Fringes are never out of stylebut on the spring/summer catwalks there were a number of options to choose from. From side swept, choppy looks to short styles there was a look for everyone. However, if you feel brave there is always a fashion forward chopped fringe but you will need well behaved hair and strong features to pull it off. Of course if you are not brave enough for a strong choppy fringe then you take inspiration from the Topshop unique show where grown out bangs were worn messy and to the side.
There’s good news if you don’t have time to slave over your hair everyday – low maintenance hair is back. At Balmain, Calvin Klein, DKNY and Stella McCartney the look was all about messy low key hair dos so why not give your hair a rest this spring/summer and let its natural beauty show through.
