New season means new trends not just in fashion and beauty; but hair too. British hairdressing legend Errol Douglas' team, and British Hairdressing Awards Colour Technician of The Year Ken Picton, have been predicting Spring/Summer 2013's hair trends...

Ken Picton, in colour terms, predicts a move away from the obvious contrast between shades that highlights and dip-dyeing created; and a move towards a more subtle colour look. Ombre (a graduation of colour from dark to light or vice versa) tones will still be very popular; but the blending will be a lot more subtle. He also predicts there being a trend of the super-blond shades.

Colour-blocking is a major trend in fashion this Spring/Summer, and Picton predicts that this will continue into hair; with solid strong punchy colours.

Jessica Speechly, Head of Colour at Errol Douglas, also predicts a more subtle way of having different colour tones in your hair. She says that "Hair Veiling was spotted on the S/S13 catwalks, and it's a great way to make a statement through colour. Veiling creates hidden panels of colour so that when the hair is flipped from one side to the other, it exposes contrasting colour. Instant edge that's also hidden easily".

So, it looks like a subtle mix of shades; or a solid block of eye-catching colour- what will you go for?
