Hair Trends for 2013

Just like fashion, the new year brings with it a whole host of new hair trends for 2013.

Our stylists have picked out their favourite catwalk trends for the next twelve months as well as what to expect to be big in the hair world this season.


Rock n’ Roll Waves

From Versace to Calvin Klein, Rock n’ Roll Waves have been an iconic look on many catwalks this season. A huge trend for 2013, taking inspiration from 90s grunge, gives hair a tousled effect that hints at a natural ‘no-effort’ style. In reality we know better and creating this look takes some practice!

Curling the hair around a pair of GHD‘s or a curling wand can create this style as the curls are then brushed out with the tips of your fingers leaving a messier and softer feel. Voodou’s 2-Go service from just £22 can create this look for you and there are step by step video to help you copy the look at home


With a Colour Specialist Salon on Bold Street and 4 Wella Colour Masters through the company we are always on the look out for the hottest colour trends. Last year Ombre had a huge influence on our clients and this year it’s only going to get bigger. Caroline Flack’s iconic ombre hair is a gorgeous example but it’s not just natural colours that are in for 2013 but also pastels and bright hues too.

If you’re looking for a change and fancy an ombre look visit one of our salons on a Half Price Colour Day for a free consultation-  our expert stylists will be sure to find the look to suit you.  Want something a little less permanent? Directions Semi Permanent hair colour can be mixed with each other so you can create your own unique shades. Even less committing is our range of chalking products from COLOR.BUG and COLORSMASH which rub on with hairspray and wash out for an instant flash of colour.

The Fringe

Thick, blunt, and long is the key to a fringe in 2013 – preferably sweeping the top of the eyes.  With a messy, textured, bohemian edge or an aura of ’60s glamorous nonchalance – both looks have been seen in collections from US Vogue’s January ’13 edition.

Getting the right fringe for your face shape is key, so book in with your Voodou stylist to discuss your options. As a regular client all fringe trims are FREE from your stylist – making sure your gorgeous new look doesn’t get overgrown! If your not sure whether a fringe is practical for you why not do a Kim Kardashian and fake it, with our range of Beauty Works hair pieces from Voodou’s Colour Centre salon.

Extra Long Hair

Like the classic bob, extra long length is  a great way for a hair cut to make a big impact. The trend on the runways for 2013 suggest a hair length that just reaches or covers the breasts – think mythological, ancient goddesses and mermaids!

If you’re lucky enough to have this sort of length already then very long hair in 2013 can be cut in two main ways: blunt, or layered. Honestly both can work equally well so have a chat to your stylist to see which one will suit your hair type the best.

If you want to add length to your life then Voodou’s range of hair extensions include Dianne Marshall and Easilocks which are quickly becoming two of the most popular brands on the market. Easilocks extensions use 100% human hair and no heat, glue, braiding or sewing the individual extensions feel lightweight and natural as they are evenly spread across your head.

The Modern Man

It’s no secret that men have become just as interested in how their hair looks as women – and the changes over the years to our Voodou For Him salons are a huge example. Men’s hair trends differ from womens as they are much more classic and long lasting compared to womens which can change every single season. They key to a great hair cut is keeping the style well-groomed and choosing products that compliment the style you have gone for.
