New York Fashion Week: Six of Our Favorite Hair and Makeup Looks

Designer: Tadashi Shoji

Photographer: Jane Kratochvil

There’s nothing we love more than a creative hair look, and Rodney Cutler’s romantic side braid and roll combination was especially beautiful. Inspired by a girl running through the woods, it’s an easy style for anyone to achieve at home.

Designer: Diane Von Furstenberg

Photographer: Lucia Cannonieri

It may be freezing in New York, but that didn’t stop Diane Von Furstenberg’s make up artist James Kaliardos from wishing for warmer days. The iconic designer sent models down the runway with a spring-inspired hot pink lip, a refreshing change from the mulberry mouths that have been dictating trends lately.

Designer: La Perla

Photographer: Adam Lerner

Who said lingerie had to be paired with Victoria’s Secret style waves? At La Perla, models sported bold red lips and elegant French rolls. To make it more interesting, Heather Packer’s French rolls were created on either side of the head (rather than one in the back), and were inspired by 1930’s Spain. Ensure your rolls have plenty of volume by applying Redken Rootful 06 Lifting Spray  [] before starting.

Designer: Jason Wu

Makeup artist Diane Kendal is known for her flawless beauty looks, and the blue/lilac, velvet-y looking eye she created for Jason Wu’s show was definitely a show stopper. In fact, Wu had Kendal match the shade to a fabric swatch from his collection. Keep your eyes out for the hue, which is part of Wu’s new collection for Lancôme.

Designer: Rita Vinieris

Photographer: David Gibson

For Rita Vinieris’ first evening wear show, Franco della Grazia created a stylish, elegant low bun was the perfect look. The trick to keeping it modern? Smooth back your hair into a ponytail before twisting it into a bun, but don’t slick it. And to ensure it all stays in place? Spray some hairspray on your ponytail before the twist.

Designer: Alice & Olivia

There’s nothing better than a little glamour during fashion week, and the gilded gold lids and deep mulberry stained mouth at Alice & Olivia was just that. Makeup artist Sarah Lucero created the iridescent shadow by tapping (real!) gold leaf onto model’s lids with her fingers, and coated lips in a deep, wine colored lip gloss that’s launching in Stila’s new fall collection.
