With the New Year in full swing, update your new season look with the hottest beauty trends seen backstage.
Whether you blow dry it straight, slick it back with some gel or even tie it up in a pony – make sure you work in the on-trend single braid that’s been hot all over the biggest runways. Take a cue from Proenza Schouler, Celine and Public School with the twisted tails. We especially love how easily hairstylist Anthony Turner prepped damp hair with some thickening spray, finger dried it to give some texture and created it low ponytail before braiding it clean at Proenza Schouler. At Public school we saw an ultra-cool twisted ropey braid, which will take some practice to get right. Till you get the hang of it, and nail the hard to maneuver style, we recommend leaving your locks in the trusted hands of our amazing braid experts at Marquee to copy the bold braid right off the runway.
Return of the nail art
As nail junkies you can imagine how excited we were to hear that backstage beauty brings back nail art this season. We’ve seen some amazing looks, like the new take on classic French manicure at Tibi, the mod look at Jonathan Simkhai and the chic nude glam at Sally LaPointe but our favourite show. We’ve taken our nail inspo from the ready to wear styles seen at the show to create some seriously stylish nail art looks we know you’ll be dying to flaunt on your tips this spring and summer. Take for example the textured nail art focus – we’ve got an edgy mirrored look, a cool Stop Play Record nail art and some chic beaded tips. The others include classic and graphic prints – there is definitely something for every fashionista and beauty maven so get booking, take some cool pictures and don’t forget to tag us on your preferred social media so we can see how well you wear the look!
The bold and beautiful brows
Big brows have been a big thing for a while now but they really made a big comeback when Cara Delevingne hit the scene and took over the backstage back in 2014. Two years and this recurring and coveted brow trend is everywhere from backstage at big name fashion houses like Givenchy, Christopher Kane and Balmain. For those ‘On fleek’ brows – head over to TNS and get them framed by one of the brow experts. Whether you’re in for a clean up and threading, or tint – the technicians will leave you with gorgeously groomed brows that perfectly frame your face. And if you’re struggling with scanty brows then invest in Skin Research Lab’s neuBROW brow enhancing serum. In just 60 days the amazing keratin enriched formula and combination of amino acids, Biotin and Apple Extract help enhance the appearance of brows so they look thicker and more defined – just make sure you apply it to your brow line morning and evening.
