The ombré hair color trend is still going strong with a high-contrast update. While a subtle transition from dark to light has been the ideal for ombré in the past, a new norm is emerging: colorblocked strands. Recently, celebrities have been spotted wearing a look that is more dip-dyed with an obvious division between roots and tips. Coco Rocha is letting her flaming ends grow out with her brunette color meandering at chin-length. Amber Heard's dark hair immediately shifts to blond around eye level, while Sarah Jessica Parker softens the abrupt transition from dark to light with a few blonde highlights around the face. Here's an opportunity to let your roots hang loose, and skip a few touch-up appointments.
According the New York Fashion Week runways, Fall 2013 hair trends will likely lean in the direction of braids, ponytails, and '90s grunge. In short, there's something for everyone: slicked-back ponytails like we saw from stylist Orlando Pita at Michael Kors, milkmaid braids spotted at Alice + Olivia, and plenty of grungy texture, as lead stylist Paul Hanlon created on models' strands backstage at 3.1 Phillip Lim. Not convinced you can pull any of this off? Watch our video to discover all the tricks to Fall 2013 hairstyling.
If the runway looks from New York Fashion Week are any indication, Fall 2013 will be all about the big sexy hair of iconic women like Bianca Jagger, and even designer Diane von Furstenberg herself.

As with any new year, it's out with the old, in with the new. And while you might find it hard to bid adieu to some of last year's hottest trends, there's a bevy of new styles to try for 2013. So kiss your caviar manicure goodbye, take down your topknot, and flip through to see how you can seamlessly swap out your trends this season.
Riding on the coattails of the deep side part trend, celebrities have been cropping up all over with asymmetrical hairstyles. The characteristics of this style are simple: start with a side part, slick the smaller side back, and secure with a bobby pin. A bristle brush helps smooth the side of your hair back seamlessly, while a heavy dose of hair spray keeps things intact.
The rest of the style can be done in any way you'd like. Naomi Watts added gentle pin curls for a vintage vibe, while Alicia Keys styled her hair into a side-swept updo. You can even just let the rest of your hair hang naturally, like Christina Ricci. Whichever way you decide to style your free hair, the slicked-back side will keep things looking just polished enough.
The whimsical, messy topknot was the style of the Summer. But this hair staple is getting a more polished makeover (and a shot of steroids) for the Winter months. Sanaa Lathan, Christa B. Allen, and Sarah Hyland were all spotted sporting over-the-top buns. And it's one look you won't be able to re-create without a little extra padding. Use a sock or rolled-up hair extensions to create the shape you desire. Start with a slicked-back high ponytail. Then pin down your stuffing and cover with your hair, tucking in all the ends. You can go smooth and sleek like Sanaa and Christa, or leave a few tendrils hanging like Sarah. This is one holiday hairstyle that rivals the star atop the Christmas tree.
