This is the thick of winter in most parts of the world. But that does not stop us from planning for the next season. Going by the top fashion shows, hairstyles for Spring/Sumer 2013 will set the fashion scene in rebel mode. Here is the first look at the hairstyle trends for the coming season.
Twists & Knots
Ramp walks of Chanel, Chloe and Marni showcased twists and knots as the quick and chic alternatives to the elaborate up-dos. While the Chloe show turned ponytails on themselves to form loops, the Chanel ones gave them a twist and fastened them with a large sized pearl accessory. Marni sported simple knots. Whatever was the styling of the hair, they were achieved with a neat centre parting.
Half and half textures will rule the spring season this year. The top of the hair is colored in a dark shade and then combed back in a slick fashion while the bottom half is colored light and given a tousled effect. This creates the dual effect of texture and color to the hair, which has never been tried before.
A new take on the traditional ballerina buns were invented by top designers who used the power of side parting and a non-slick hairstyling to create these novel buns. Other designers used a centre parting and made the buns messier to give a self styled look.
Textured waves and tousled hair gave the models a just-woken-up hair and in turn an easy fashion trend to follow this Spring. Making these easy-to-achieve hairstyles a fashion statement takes a lot of courage and our top designers have done just that. A matte finish is what will make your hairstyle a hit during this season.
Nape of the Neck
The nape of the neck has been the focus of many designers – be it tying your ponytails or securing scarves here. Hair accessories from Michael Kors’ included novel elastic bands, metal crowns from Balenciaga and pearls by Chanel.
Retro hairstyles made a comeback on stage this year in more than one category. Beehive buns were the foremost among the sixties styles. Deep side partings accompanied by teased crowns gave a new look to this old trend.
From simple no-fuss pony tails to headscarves, hairstyles turned from simple to gorgeous for the spring. To keep away from the light breeze of the spring, pony tails will make a comeback this year, with not much fuss. Summer season will be ushered in with colorful floral headscarves which will also keep your hair from getting fried due to the heat of the season.
Fringes emerging from side parting dotted the spring/summer ramp for 2013. This style accompanied many a pony tail bearing models as also the chignons, up dos and knotted ones. Chloe, Marni and Valentino catwalks are the shows that will inspire you into adopting this trend.
