2012 was a year of wild experimentation in the celebrity hair world. Miley and Rihanna chopped and shaved their heads more than the paparazzi could keep up with, and pop stars like Katy Perry influenced actresses to be more experimental with their looks. But which classic haircuts of 2012 will extend their influence into 2013?
Anne Hathaway’s Les Miserables Pixie
Anne Hathaway cut her hair to play the heroine Fantine in Les Miserables. According to co-star Hugh Jackman, Hathaway requested that any real blood drawn during her hair-cutting scene be used as footage in the final film! Her haircut has become one of the most-requested of the year. Beauty bloggers see the transformation as Anne finally breaking out of the ‘good girl’ pigeonhole that has persisted throughout her twenties. Hathaway has reinvented herself as a beauty risk-taker, keeping the look after the wrap of the movie. The pixie is a wash-and-wear hairstyle, so it’s recommended for those who have little time to spend on styling and products.
Freja Beha’s Rocker Fringe
Freja is now in the category of ‘established model’, after her teens and early twenties spent as muse to people like Karl Lagerfeld and Isabel Marant. Throughout the transformations, she’s kept true to her signature hairstyle: Mid chocolate-y brown with wispy layers that make the most of her delicate, thin hair texture. She’s always rocked the full fringe, which has given her look the nonchalant cred that designers have flocked to. Happily, it isn’t the most difficult style to rock and a good hairdresser (check out a list via secretsalons London) should be able to recreate the effect of breezy layers and rich, hazelnut brown colour.
Kim Kardashian’s Glamorous Length
Haters may continue to hate on Kim, but with the announcement that she is pregnant with Kanye West’s baby, 2013 is sure to be the Year of Kim. As if we missed her before! No doubt her pregnancy style will be top of every gossip paper’s priority list. Though many think that her look is less than chic, the truth is that Kimmy has hair that a lot of women covet. We predict that her locks will continue to set trends throughout the next year, though we doubt we’ll see a drastic change. Recently Kim has hopped on the trend for a full fringe – and it looks great on her.
As you can see, there’s variety on this list. From waist-length to short and pretty, 2013 has a hair trend to offer everyone, and we haven’t even covered colour yet!
