red hairBig turning point in your life? Old hair colour grown out? Or just want a fresh new look? Whatever your reason, changing the colour of your hair can be a big decision and knowing the upcoming hair colour trends could help inspire you to make the big change!

Remington has helped us out by passing on the expert advice of two-time Australian Colour Technician of the Year Matt Clements who tells all on the hues to choose for 2013. As this also coincides with the release of the new Remington Colour Protect Therapy straighteners which help to protect and prolong your dyed tresses, there has never been a better time to embrace changing your hair colour!


For the lovers of a fiery mane, Matt predicts that the upcoming year will see favoured shades of titan coppers, rusty hues and scarlet reds. Think Christina Hendricks, Julia Roberts and for the brave, Florence Welch. Matt advises that for reds, ‘2013 will be all about balancing intensity with depth and richness’.


If you’ve been considering a lighter change, then for blondes Matt sees a movement to ‘ice shades that embrace cool, crisp and clean tones’. Use Claudia Schiffer as your hair inspiration. And for those feeling adventurous, Matt recommends making ‘a return to the toneless hues of white blonde’. If you’d prefer not to take your look to Nordic extremes, he advises opting for ‘warmer shades of soft marigolds and honey hues’ which will also be big for the coming year.


Take a walk on the dark side with Matt’s forecast for the deep, rich hues that are set to play a rising force in 2013. Use the locks of Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox as a guide, with Matt recommending ‘hues of rich chocolate, deep burnt caramels and inky petrol blacks to bring on the New Year with increased depth and texture’.


2012 saw Hollywood come alight with candy inspired pinks and blues, however for those looking for a fun twist for the coming year Matt sees this trend ‘replaced with softer iridescent powder pinks, blue-greens and buttery yellow golds’.
