BeautyStat.com’s Top 10 Beauty Secrets & Backstage Moments Revealed! NYFW Spring, Summer 2015 Trends: Cornrows, Reverse Manicures, Freckles, Facial Masks

Now that NYFW has come and gone, we’ve had some time to collect our fave hair trends for next spring! While some classics like the ponytail and faux bob remain a pillar in the beauty world, variations of some of our go-to hairstyles of choice are getting a bit edgy. Think cornrows, sleek and sweaty styles and curly hair with loads of texture. Read on to find out how to get 6 Spring/Summer 2015 Hairstyles before we wrap up 2014!

Curly Texture

Textured hair NYFW SS15 6 Spring/Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trends: Curly Texture, Ponytails, Braids, Waves, Sculpted Chignon, Sleek Normcore Looks, Cuts

When isn’t it about sexy hair? At Betsey Johnson SS’15, Sexy Hair Lead Hairstylist Rafe Hardy incorporated back-combing to each volumized curl he made, using volumizing dry shampoo at roots and spray and play on ends before curling.

Three words: Textured. Faux. Bobs. This hairstyle is still going strong, but now with a little more texture. South African designer David Tiale created a statement with a strong hair look created by Motions Salon Hair Care Celebrity Stylist Ursula Stephen. He used Motions® Shine Enhancing Pomade on fingertips while braiding to smooth hair and provide a better grip. A crimping iron added texture for a new take on the faux bob.

At Jeremy Scott, the surfer lived on with individual takes on carefree hair from braids to crimped pieces! Hair was left natural and free-flowing by spraying a generous amount of Wella Professionals Ocean Spritz for texture.

Erratic waves were seen at the Ann Yee’s SS’15 show. To coincide with the clothes that featured malleable textures and clean lines, Aveda Guest Artist Jon Reyman created a sleek style that morphed into a rhythm of fitful waves coming together briefly off center, only to expand out into a full ponytail. Aveda Light Elements Texturizing Creme gave waves definition, while also smoothing down the top of the hair.

Ric Pipino for Alterna Haircare created fuss-free curly hair at the Georgine SS’15 show. He prepped damp hair by liberally applying the Alterna Haircare Bamboo Volume 2-in-1 Volumizer from root to tip. After creating more texture and curling strands, the entire look was sealed in with Alterna Haircare Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist to the ends for a touch of shine.

Braids

Left to Right: Peter Som, Marissa Webb, Chromat, The Blonds, Maria Ke Fisherman

At Peter Som, the front of the hair portrayed a highly groomed menswear style, and from the back, a chic all-American woman was seen in the form of a braid. The sleek pompadour was achieved using Wella Professionals Extra Volume Mousse to the top layer of hair from the forehead to crown.

Marissa Webb’s SS’15 Collection was a variety of edgy, “downtown” separates for the creative woman on-the-go. TRESemmé Stylist Jeanie Syfu created 2 hairstyles that encompassed both a gritty vibe and a feminine twist. We loved the braided pompadour, which was achieved with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse and a Dutch braid (reverse French braid). The 3 braids were then gathered and twisted into a low bun, leaving ends loose.

Chuck Amos for Oribe Hair Care used a combination of Supershine and Gel Serum for his braided/top knot look at the Chromat SS’15 show. The hair product concoction helped him maneuver the hair in a way that avoided creating any bunchy braids, while the serum kept the braids together.

Get that gangsta genie braid seen at The BlondsSS’15 show. CATWALK® by TIGI® Global Creative Director Nick Irwin misted wet hair with CATWALK® by TIGI® Fast Fixx Style Prep and then used CATWALK® by TIGI® Session Series Wet Look Gel to small sections. He combed each section smooth and tight, and pulled into a high ponytail at the crown of the head.

Symmetric braids were seen at Maria Ke Fisherman, inspired by “imperviousness of innocence and youth in the fractal city.” Nick Irwin developed a strong braided look which softens through the front, speaking perfectly to Maria Ke Fisherman’s impermeable girl. Nick used a cornrow method and CATWALK® by TIGI® Session Series Work It Hairspray to get that urban look.

Carefree Waves

Natural Hair SS15 NYFW 6 Spring/Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trends: Curly Texture, Ponytails, Braids, Waves, Sculpted Chignon, Sleek Normcore Looks, Cuts

Left to Right: Narciso Rodriguez, Coach, Victoria Beckham, Kate Spade

Narciso Rodriguez‘s SS’15 runway show showcased effortless waves for the young, free and liberated woman. TRESemmé Lead Stylist Paul Hanlon sprayed on TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray all over to prevent damage when he used a ceramic plated straighter – like TRESemmé Salon Professional Flat Iron – around the hairline to achieve a flattering wave. He finished the look with TRESemmé Smooth & Silky Anti-Frizz Secret Crème and a misting of TRESemmé Climate Protection Finishing Spray for flexible hold.

Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a cool, ’70s-inspired hairstyle at the Coach SS’15 show, playing up the retro-inspired collection. The hair was kept as natural as possible, using guts 10 and wind blown 05 to create great texture with a little bit of lift. A low side part over one eye, and the other side tucked behind the ear, gave a cool boyish look that was still very soft and feminine.

At Victoria Beckham, Guido created a very easy and undone style that gave way for a more modern feel. Hair dried naturally with a messy side part created using fingers. Redken’s NEW! wind blown 05 dry finishing spray texturized and lifted the roots a bit; a wide-barrel curling iron was used to bend random clumps of hair for added body.

The hair at Kate Spade was supposed to evoke a fresh start. Garnier Celebrity Hair Stylist Tommy Buckett used a curling iron wand to create soft and natural waves in the hair. He then applied Deconstructed Texture Tease Dry Touch Finish Spray from the root to the mid-shaft
for tousled, airy fullness. He then rubbed Deconstructed Pixie Play Crafting Cream on the ends to define them and give a piecey effect.

Ponytails

Ponytails NYFW SS15 6 Spring/Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trends: Curly Texture, Ponytails, Braids, Waves, Sculpted Chignon, Sleek Normcore Looks, Cuts

Left to Right: Jason Wu, Cushnie et Ochs, Pamella Roland, Diesel, Katie Gallagher

For Jason Wu, Odile Gilbert for Kérastase Paris made a side-part low ponytail using
Mousse Bouffant and Ciment Thermique. He used a paddle brush and blow-dried in a backwards motion for more volume. Baume Double Je was added as the finishing touch to prevent fly-aways and secure hair in place.

Antonio Corral Calero, Moroccanoil Global Creative Director, created a look inspired by Cleopatra in the desert sunset for the Cushnie et Ochs SS’15 show. The simple, sleek ponytail with a twist was created by taking 1” section of the ponytail and spraying it with Moroccanoil Heat Styling Protection for long-lasting hold. He then wrapped hair around the elastic and secured it.

Pamella Roland drew inspiration for her SS’15 Collection from The Gardens of Kyoto, Japan. To complement the designs, Lead Hair Stylist Ted Gibson created a modern hair look that paid homage to the fierce spirit of Japanese warriors and delicate beauty of Geishas. Ted created a deep center part, starting at the forehead and continuing to the crown of the head. He then applied L’Oreal Professionnel Gelée Cashmere to the front of the hair, along with L’Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert Perfect Shimmer Shine Illuminating Mist for added high shine.

Inspired by the modern day woman, Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a polished, modern ponytail for Diesel’s SS’15 show. Guido achieved this classic ready-to-wear style using Redken satinwear 02 prepping blow-dry lotion to blow the hair out straight, then combed it back into a smooth, low ponytail with a deep side part. To add a futuristic feeling, he finished the look with a liberal misting of Forceful 23 super strength hairspray to create a lacquer-like effect.

Katie Gallagher’s SS’15 Collection was inspired by the idea of ‘sad romance.’ Inspired once again by Katie herself, CATWALK® by TIGI® Global Creative Director Nick Irwin developed an airy, romantic hair look that spoke perfectly to Gallagher’s effortlessly chic girl. He sprayed the ponytail with CATWALK® by TIGI® Session Series Transforming Dry Shampoo and scrunched with fingers to buckle the hair, adding movement and additional texture.

Sculpted Chignon

Updos NYFW SS15 6 Spring/Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trends: Curly Texture, Ponytails, Braids, Waves, Sculpted Chignon, Sleek Normcore Looks, Cuts

Left to Right: Novis, Carmen Marc Valvo, Alice+Olivia

A sculpted take on a classic chignon was on display at the Novis SS’15 presentation. Aveda Guest Artist Frank Rizzieri created a sculptural knotted bun to coincide with the details and distinction of the collection. He blow-dried hair straight to help expand the volume while also creating sleekness; a light misting of BrilliantTM Spray-On Shine added a touchable sheen.

Ted Gibson and team styled the hair for Carmen Marc Valvo’s 25th Anniversary NYFW show.  “I knew I wanted to make this season’s hair super-special, so I thought it would be chic to incorporate a silver streak into the hair look for a 50 Shades of Gray moment,” explains Ted. “I knew that this soft, side-swept chignon for the women was perfect to bring out that Old Hollywood glamour of the collection, with the silver streak bringing it into the new millennium!”

Alice+Olivia featuring Michael Dueñas for OSiS+ braided a silk scarf into a classic chignon. Hair was parted in the middle and controlled using OSIS + Grip Extreme Hold Mousse from scalp to ends. A low, tight ponytail was made and secured with an elastic. A scarf was then pulled  through the elastic. The ponytail was sectioned into 3 braids and wrapped in with the scarf. A tight bun was secured with large pins at the back of the head.

Sleek Normcore Hair

Sweaty Hair NYFW ss15 6 Spring/Summer 2015 Hairstyle Trends: Curly Texture, Ponytails, Braids, Waves, Sculpted Chignon, Sleek Normcore Looks, Cuts

Left to Right: DKNY, Zac Posen, Thakoon, Alexander Wang, Creatures of Comfort

The look at the DKNY SS ’15 show saw the brand revisiting its ‘90s roots, with a take on the diverse New York urban youth culture of that time. Using a tint brush, Eugene Souleiman, Creative Director at Wella Professionals, applied Wella Professionals Sculpt Force Gel to  the roots of each wisp of hair, then worked the gel through the length of the hair with his fingers.

At the Zac Posen SS’15 show, Lead Artist Odile Gilbert for Kérastase created a glossy feminine pompadour using products from the brand’s Couture Styling Collection, including Forme Fatale blow dry gel, NEW! Laque Noire strong hold hairspray and NEW! Kératine Thermique thermo-protecting primer.

Lead Artist Odile Gilbert for Kérastase created a glossy, just-out-of-the-water hairstyle at the Thakoon SS’15 show. To achieve the look, Odile used stylers from the brand’s iconic Couture Styling Collection and the NEW! Kératine Thermique thermo-protecting primer.

Redken Creative Consultant Guido brought sophistication and sportiness to the Alexander Wang SS’15 runway. Putting a twist on the classic low ponytail, Guido created a modernly futuristic feeling with a very sleek, sporty-inspired pony. Using hardwear 16 super-strong sculpting gel and Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist, Guido changed the effect of a simple hairstyle with contrasting wet and dry textures.

At the Creatures of Comfort SS’15 show, the hair evoked an effortless, modern look with an emphasis on different textures. Esther Langham for Beauty.com used Alterna Haircare and T3 Tools. Alterna Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray was added to the roots and combed through the hair with a large comb. Once hair was dry, Alterna Bamboo Style FreeStyle Flexible Control Gel was applied from the front of the hairline, directly above the forehead, to the back of the head until the hair sat flat on the head with a wet look.

Loreal GLosy Balms Review, Swatches: How To Get Glossy, Pigmented Lips With L’Oréal Colour Riche Glossy Balms!

It’s a little weird to think that every time September rolls around, the back-to-school jitters hit me hard. Maybe it’s the hustle and bustle of #NYFW, or perhaps that eerie feeling caused by the changing of the seasons. But whatever the case, I find the best way to wash away those anxious feels is through brand-spanking new makeup, of course.

If you too find it extremely hard to part with the playfulness of summer beauty, no need to freak out. L’Oréal Paris has recently unveiled the NEW! Colour Riche Glossy Balm, which helps you transition from that summertime gloss to a more pigmented-rich color balm.

To apply, simply work your way from the center of your lips then outward, giving your lips unbeatable shine. And with a variety of different shades, there’s one for every mood or personality.

It was a whirlwind of hairspray, fashion, lipgloss and nails… but we managed to survive another Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week! Our fab beauty editors divided and conquered to bring you all the backstage access of some of our favorite designers, hairstylists and makeup artists. Whether it was seeing models wearing hydrating facial masks for supple skin or stopping by a new beauty bar, we rounded up our Top 10 Moments From NYFW SS’15!

1. We stopped by the Maybelline Lounge Penthouse at Milk Studios and hung out with Makeup Artist Melissa Silver. She showed us just how easy the NEW! Master Kajal Eyeliners are to use for fall. Beauty Editor Mandie Williams took a break in between shows to retouch her makeup and sip some Maybellinis.

2. Cornrolls and ponytails. Senior Editor Erin Sutera made her way backstage at the Edun S/S’15 show with James Pecis for Beauty.com using Phyto and T3 tools. He created a modern pony by prepping the hair with PHYTO Phytovolume Actif Volumizing Spray from roots to ends and using the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i. PHYTO Professional Glossing Cream was combed through the hair with fingers to give texture and separation. As the hair was tied into a low ponytail, it was secured with a black band at the crown. The tail was then sprayed with PHYTO Professional Workable Holding Spray and tied into a Zulu knot. The finished look was neat, funky yet not too done. As an added touch, James added tiny cornrows at both temples to secure the headband.

Tadashi Nails 2015 BeautyStat.com's Top 10 Beauty Secrets & Backstage Moments Revealed! NYFW Spring, Summer 2015 Trends: Cornrolls, Reverse Manicures, Freckles, Facial Masks

5. Neutral nail art. Beige, taupe, off-white… a neutral nail is what we can expect for the springtime. But of course, we can all benefit from a little bling. Nail art will be taking a more subtle approach with smaller accents, like a thin strip of gold found across the nail. Katie Jane Hughes painted our pinky nail as she did for the models backstage at Tadashi Shoji, where nails had one coat of NEW! butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in High Tea (available 2015) to create a clean, nude base; butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in The Full Monty was applied with the Striping Brush (available in the butter LONDON Colour Hardwear Nail Art Tool Kit) to create a diagonal mesh-like pattern.

6. Embrace your freckles… or just draw them on! Mark Carasquillo for Beauty.com used Keyvn Aucoin for a look that evoked an English Girl sitting by the seaside. Skin was evened out using the Sensual Skin Enhancer where needed; The Creamy Glow Duo to give a sunkissed glow. Eyes were minimal, curling the lashes and applying a dark brown mascara. The key to this look was the penciled in freckles, placing them differently on each model.

7. The reverse manicure. Nails were equally as neutral as soft. Katie Jane Hughes of butter LONDON for Beauty.com said she wanted to give a reverse paint job with the nails. The nail techs first used a beautiful taupe in Yummy Mummy and THEN used the Nail Foundation over the polish to take it back a notch.

10. Skincare backstage. Before the models were poked and prodded with liner and lipstick, makeup artists relied on some deeply hydrating skincare to help models get a healthy, makeup-free glow. At the Rag & Bone SS’15 show, Celebrity Makeup Artist Gucci Westman gave the models a radiance boost with Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid or Ceramidin Cream to moisturize and soothe irritated skin. At Opening CeremonyNEW! Dr. Jart+ Water Replenishment Mask soothed and moisturized the skin.

Eye Patch NYFW 2015 ss BeautyStat.com's Top 10 Beauty Secrets & Backstage Moments Revealed! NYFW Spring, Summer 2015 Trends: Cornrows, Reverse Manicures, Freckles, Facial Masks

Tired eyes are inevitable for a model. The Patchology Energizing Eye Kit came to the rescue at the Tadashi Shoji SS’15 show. Celebrity Aesthetician Eileen Harcourt and her skincare team applied Patchology Energizing Eye Patches under each models’ eyes upon their arrival backstage. The gel was first applied to each patch before being placed on the models’ skin, offering a wonderful cooling sensation upon application. Containing micro-current technology, the patches deliver today’s most effective hydrating ingredients to the skin in a way that regular creams and serums cannot.
