Hair Color Trends from The Runway

Are you ready for a new look in 2013? Changing up your hair color can be one of the easiest ways to dramatically alter your appearance. Getting a haircut may feel too scary. With a hair color change, though, you won't have to worry about waiting for your hair growing out after a disastrous cut. If you don't like how the color comes out, it's easy to fix.

Many products are available in the market today with wide ranging colors and prices to suit every taste and purse. Besides choosing a good hair color brand, remember it is also important that you choose a hair color with a shade that best suits your hair color and skin tone.

If you're going to look to 2013's Fashion Week in New York for hair color ideas, you'll notice that many of the models were wearing bold hair colors. Faded hot pink and snow white were the two most shocking hair colors that made it to the runway. All-over color is a bold move. Get a bit of bold color into your look without going all-out. Have your color of choice highlight just the ends of your hair or the underneath layers. Bold-loving celebs include Gwen Stefani, Katy Perry and Avril Lavigne.

Jessica Biel HairstyleOmbre Hair Color for Long Hair
Ombre colored hair, while often misunderstood, is still wildly popular in 2013. Many people think that ombre hair is simply colored hair with roots that are grown out. On the contrary, though, ombre hair is purposeful and modern.

This coloring has darker hair at the roots and lighter hair from mid-way down the hair to the ends. This look works best on women with long hair. Short-haired girls don't have enough length to show contrast. Keep your roots a shade of brown and have your ends either light brown, copper or dirty blonde. Celebs like Lauren Conrad, Jessica Biel and Drew Barrymore have all worn this look.

Selena Gomez Hairstyle#2 Hair Color Trends for Brunettes
Stylists agree and feel that softer, subtler hair colors will be popular this year. Shine and depth will be the two most important hair color considerations and color will always look natural instead of fake.

The best way to achieve natural looking color is to have small highlights dispersed throughout the hair. Highlights should be within two shades of your natural color.

This is the hair color that celebrities like Nicole Richie, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Rachel Bilson, Selena Gomez and Zoe Saldana are all rocking.

Ashley Simpson hairstyle#3 Hair Color Trends for Blondes
If you're a natural blonde, choose a different blonde color for highlights. Nicole Richie's honey base is enhanced with gold highlights.

Ashlee Simpson lives a bit on the wilder side. Ashy, pale highlights work best with her super-light blonde hair.

Ask your stylist about color glosses, too.

Kate Walsh Hairstyle #4 Hairstyle Trends for Redheads
Redheads never go unnoticed! Red heads should veer away from blue-reds this year and instead opt for copper reds, which will look more natural.

Turn to Kate Walsh for an example of gorgeous 2013 red hair. Since colored red hair tends to fade quickly, make sure to get regular touchups. Ask your stylist about color glosses, too.

Marcia Cross is an incredibly beautiful and talented actress. You may know her as Bree Van De Kamp on the surprise hit "Desperate Housewives"

Marcia's soft and elegant style is a sensational look for her. Her hair length falls just past her shoulders and large waves at the ends of her hair create weight.

Kelly Osbourne Hairstyle#5 A Cool Trend for Gray Hair

One of the most popular colors for 2013 is, believe it or not, gray. On the red carpet at this year's Golden Globe Awards, Kelly Osbourne's hair was a grayish-purple color thatss been virtually unseen before. Model Kate Moss has also been sporting the gray look.

Just when you thought going gray was a bad thing, celebrities come along and make it trendy. Either dye your entire head of hair gray or opt for gray highlights, which look best on blonde hair. The boldest ladies can dye their hair stark white.

Make sure to always get a consultation with your colorist first. A good stylist will be able to tell you if the hair color you have in mind will complement your complexion. You may have to choose a different hair color or adjust your makeup to go along with your new hair color.

And oh by the way a basic tenet is that if you have to wear more make up than before after you color your hair, then you have the wrong hair color. A proper hair color should highlight your skin tone bring it alive and glowing. On the other hand, if you have made the wrong choice you will probably look tired and washed out.
