As New York Fashion Week comes to a close, we’ve seen a refreshing return of colorful beauty looks on the runway—a far departure from the minimalist hair and makeup trends that have become synonymous with the city’s understated aesthetic. And while clean skin, air-dried waves, and elegantly polished neutral nails remained as an unwavering runway staple, a good number of bold designers opted for a less subtle approach for the Fall 2018 season. From the neon colored bobs of Marc Jacobs, to the lavender smokey eyes of Anna Sui to the ’80s hair clips of Alexander Wang, take a closer look at the must try hair and makeup trends to sport this fall.
Neon Colored Hair:
While the majority of models sported silver hair clips at Alexander Wang, model EZ turned heads with her freshly dyed ruby red pixie courtesy of hair colorist Josh Wood. Likewise, nine models at Marc Jacobs debuted wild transformations on the runway that showcased newly chopped and dyed hair in various shades of red, blue, and purple boy-cuts and bobs. It’s a look that is not for the faint of heart—and wildly cool.
Colorful Smoky Eyes:
Model Gigi Hadid displayed at how to effortlessly rock side swept tousled waves at Anna Sui, hitting the runway with a multilayered lavender purple and hot pink smoky created by legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath, while at Carolina Herrera, makeup artist Diane Kendal created an elegantly smudged dark blue smoky eye that models paired with a swept back up-do.
Throwback Hair Accessories:
Reinventing some of the most memorable hair accessories of the ’80s and ’90s, models at Alexander Wang sported oversized silver banana clips imprinted with the designer’s name, with combed back slick up dos. At Prabal Gurung, models like Bella Hadid opted for head comb headbands, popularized by Lizzie Mcguire and other early 2000s icons, with romantically pink flushed cheeks and a hint of metallic gold in the inner corner of the eye.
