We’re only halfway through February, but we’re already pumped for fall beauty trends, thanks to what we saw at New York Fashion Week. Jeweled long nails, moody, vampiric lip colors, and geometric hair — this fall is set to be one of the boldest beauty seasons in history. And luckily, the trends just keep on coming. Now, it’s London’s turn to show us what they have in store.
If New York is the bougie friend that gets photographed outside every celebrity-filled party and club, London is the friend getting invites to secret underground concerts and members-only speakeasies. Fashion week in the U.K. is innovative and just so damn cool without even trying. Last London Fashion Week alone gave us looks we’re still in love with months later. House of Holland served disco-party vibes while Christopher Kane revived our love for the “out-of-the-shower” slicked-back, low ponytail. And how can we forget that romantic low chignon at Victoria Beckham?
This year, makeup artists and hairstylists are once again bringing the heat to the runway. While minimal makeup has ruled the runway for many seasons, the mood in London was theatrical and playful with new takes on winged liner and subtle nods to punk. As far as hair goes, all shapes and textures of hair were embraced and were often accessorized with hair clips or flashes of colour, or elevated to gravity-defying heights for a sundry of bold statements.
