Hot Ideas for Your Hairstyle This Year

It seems like every year there's a new way to wear your hair and 2013 is no exception! Here are some of the hottest new trends for hairstyles.

The Hidden Braid: Made popular by Rachel Zoe, this style is subtle and sexy. Just take two inches from the side of your hair and braid it tightly with a clear elastic, then tuck it into your hair to give your simple mane a little flair.

The High Ponytail: Slick down your hair with styling gel and pull it into a tight tail on the crown of your head. Use elastic to hold the tail up and then cover the elastic with a cloth headband to give your tail its body. Flatiron the tail to finish your new look.

Rounded Bangs: With your bangs growing out, give them a good blow. Wrap them in a large Velcro roller to give them a nice Sixties-style arc and keep them out of your eyes.

The Barrette: If your hair is rough and messy, never fear! A small and chic hair clip is all you need to stay fashionable. Just add some texturing spray, drag your hair back with your fingers, and then loosely clip it near the nape of your neck.

Colors: You don't have to go for a full-dye job to get noticed anymore. Extreme colors like emerald, ruby, lilac, and copper are in so long as you do them tastefully by coloring a few strands or tips. Be sure that the color accessorizes well with the rest of your outfit.

Party Hair: You can turn the disheveled hair from rolling out of bed into a wild, sexy look with texturizing spray or dry shampoo. Twist your hair into a bun and clip it into place. After you blow-dry for a minute, unclip and shake it all out!

The Glossy Chignon: For an interesting twist, run a smooth oil through your hair to give it a shine. Then pull it all back into a ponytail. Pull the ponytail into two strands and then twist it together into a sleek chignon, held in place with bobby pins and hairspray.

The Rumpled Braid: Your braid going messy can actually be a great asset. Start with a tight ponytail near the nape of the neck. After combing it out, braid the tail loosely while squeezing and twisting to create the rumpled effect. Tie it off with a piece of elastic crisscrossed with either brown string or a piece of leather.
