2013 Hairstyles: A New Year – a New Style

Do you feel adventurous? If your answer is 'Yes' (with a capital Y), you may like to wear a large chignon sideways like a sailor’s cap, two colourful braids, big or kinky hair. For all you adventurous and edgy fashionados, we have some unusual, not yet established hairstyles for you to try. See how models and stars wear these new styles, which may seem slightly eccentric for now

"What is my style? Do I want to change my style this year?" These questions are commonplace around the change of years. Just for the moments around the count-down to the New Year, the chance for a new beginning seems right within our grasp. It is the time for change and resolutions. You may vow to re-invent your style and especially your hairstyle. Once you are in a re-inventing mood, you may not want to stop at planning a new hairstyle, but rather make the step to an exceptional, edgy one. This is where we come in. We like to share our hair design ideas with you.

2013 Hairstyles: Try Something New for a Change

One chignon is fine, two chignons are better! There is no reason not to wear more than one chignon. There is plenty of room for chignons on the crown of the head and in the back of the head.

Braids: Never forget this beautiful option! Braided hairstyle elements can be part of many different hairdos. Braids add new dimensions to established hairstyles. Besides, there are many braiding styles like French or herringbone braids.  

Experimentation with Shapes: Ponytails may be twisted, twirled or segmented with scrunchies. Chignons can be shaped in different ways with and without space in the centre.

Streaks: Colourful streaks add highlights to any hairstyle. Use hair chalk or hair mascara if you just like to try the look for a few hours. If you like the look, you can always switch to permanent hair colour.

Hair Jewellery: Hair jewellery is often the defining feature of a hairstyle. This applies in particular if the hairstyle is plain but for the jewellery.

The hairstyle photos in our gallery demonstrate how to apply these suggestions.
