With the 2014 Fall Fashion Week in NYC wrapping up just as I write this and cabin fever from this winter storm setting in, I was inspired to refer back to the 2014 spring shows from this past fall to get in the mood for brighter days ahead. Fashion Week is such an exciting time for me not only because I’m a fashion junky, but also because I love love love watching the new trends in hair in makeup. Here are a few of my very favorite beauty looks for spring 2014!
Makeup artist Diane Kendal designed this look by using a bronze shadow across the lid complemented with a dusting of rose gold glitter in the center. Long pony tails with a center part finish this elegant look.
Braided halos were created by hairstylist Jeanie Syfu by roughing up hair, plaiting three different pony tails, wrapping them around head, and pinning them in place. Hair was then pulled to loosen braids and give a messy undone look.
Dry hair slicked back with a wet-finished gel puts the face front and center, allowing the lips to bring in a bit of drama to this look by using a “diffused blotting of a matte stain” in red.
A deconstructed French braid designed by Antonio Corral compliments the free yet girly makeup. Hair was braided and pulled apart to create a frizzy, fuzzy, imperfect look.
A rough and knotted pony tail with a braid wrapped around the base of each to add dimension was the perfect contrast to fresh skin and popsicle-stained lips. Hair was created by teasing the Mohawk section hair, smoothing it over, and pulling it up in a pony tail. More texture was added by teasing the base of the pony tail again.
After reviewing the Spring 2014 Fashion Week I am excited about warmer weather and a new season. This one promises to be a good one, with lots a style ahead! Reoccurring beauty tends we can certainly expect to see this spring are lips with a bright pop of color, faux bobs, undone updos, and soft touchable ultra sexy hair. Think grunge meets glamour.
Wishing you many good hair and makeup days ahead!
