Spring/summer 2013 is all about off-duty style. All the key trends across the board are relaxed, informal and care-free, which is fantastic when temperatures are rising. The last thing any woman wants is to get hot and bothered in the middle of a heat wave, trying to do a fancy braid or a pristine up-do.
So good news ladies; all the hairstyles featured on the designer catwalks this year, including the likes of Chloe, Balmain and Roberto Cavalli, all adopt a ‘less is more’ attitude.
Here are the top 5 hair trends to jump on board and imitate:
Messy knots, twists and loops
Being intricate with your hair doesn’t have to result in a lot of effort. Many of the designers have adopted looped, knotted and twisted hairstyles as a great alternative to traditional up-dos. Ponytails were looped back on themselves at Chloe, Chanel twisted their model’s hair and at Marni, hair was loose and knotted. (Image courtesy of Vogue.co.uk)
Two-in-one hair texture is back with a vengeance to make hair look fresh and modern. Designers such as Rag & Bone, Derek Lam and Giambattista Valli have all featured the classic look, which is slicked back on top and tousled below. The ‘wet look’ is perfect for the beach!

As previously stated, this season is all about simplicity and ease. The bun has been a hot favourite at many shows for some time, but this year designers are rebelling against the slick, unspoiled bun in favour of a messier style. At Bottega Veneta, the buns had a centre parting and were disordered, whereas at Ralph Lauren and Valentino, they paired the models’ anti-ballerina buns with side partings. If it looks like you have done it yourself, then that is perfect! (Image courtesy of Vogue.co.uk)
Wrap it up
The spring/summer season can bring blustery gales, which is why this trend is ideal. A lot of patterned silk headscarves featured at Dolce & Gabbana this year, making it this year’s must-have accessory. If the weather is giving you a bad hair day and you still want to look on trend, wrap it up in style with a headscarf. (Image courtesy of Vogue.co.uk)
Sixties is back
All the best fashion crazes are reused from past eras and 2013 is all about swinging back to the classic sixties. Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton and Moschino all had their collections influenced by the iconic beehive. You too can imitate the style but think retro, not Snooki from Jersey Shore.
