Autumn/Winter hair trends 2013

Autumn has well and truly settled-in, and winter is making its blustery way here. Seeing the new trends for the season always cheers me up.

Fresh off the plane from London, David Gillson from Carlton Hair gave me the low-down on the hottest hair trends.

“This season sees a more grown-up feeling than seasons past. The trends are not vastly different, but just toned-down, more sophisticated versions. Ponytails are still the look du jour, but centre partings, messy up do’s and dip died hair are all still around. Colour returns to a more natural tone, with the exception of platinum blondes. Even the ombre and dip die effects are muted,” explains David. “Think of it as a move away from bubblegum hair and half shaved heads towards a more understated and glamourous finish.” Follow David on Twitter and Neofundi for more trends.
