Hot Hair: Spring/Summer 2013 Trend Spotting
Believe it or not, but spring will soon be upon us! The true indicator that warm weather is on the horizon is the desire from so many of my clients to try something new. The most frequent inquiries from my impatient beauties sound something like this: “What are this year's trends?” Along with, “Can we lighten my hair, and try something new?” Absolutely. Of course. I couldn’t agree more!
I’m happy to report that I had the opportunity to work backstage for Wella Professionals at America’s Beauty Show in Chicago last weekend, where we brought to life the hottest trends for the season. ABS happens to be the largest beauty trade show in the country, and I am so excited to share some of Wella Professionals’ favorite looks for the year!

Spring is a time for change, and I am so excited to see fresh bright colors everywhere. Wella, as a professional hair color, care, and styling line, has so much to offer. Let’s start with our interpretation of the trend Decibel, a return to 70’s glam punk, with bright, brash colors, and eclectic style:
The trend Echo is a return to artistic sensitivity, a more dark intuitive style that speaks from the heart. Here we have combined two colors, copper and titanium to create a simple juxtaposition on textured hair:
Fusion is a trend that is embodied by the woman who takes a journey into the future. She is strong and of Asian descent with an “East meets West” influence:
The stylist’s favorite for the year is the trend Allegra, which brings an opulence to imperial folklore. Clad with braids, waves, and texture, this is a trend that long-haired beauties can embrace for more than just that special event:
