Stick it on your nail and polish the surface that remains uncovered with the pink pastel nail polish Color Riche Le Vernis No 101, L’ Oreal Paris. Wait a while to dry, peel off the scotch tape and spend the rest of the claw with turquoise Color Riche Le Vernis Miss Candy No 616. You’ re done!

I’m constantly on the hunt for new ways to wear my hair. The Spring shows, as they so often do, offered up a considerable number of options—some more doable than others without the assistance of a professional—including updates on the ponytail that include the incorporation of an old favorite: barrettes. Ditto the rose gold barrettes that Adam Reed and Paul Percival used backstage at House of Holland to hold a slicked-back top section above a low pony. The best part? All you need is $3.29 to get a hold of a three-pack of the multitasking accoutrements. If only Prada’s car-embellished leather skirts were as easy to come by.
Next season’s hottest hair and makeup trends—straight from the runway
Trend: ’60s-Inspired Cat-Eyes
Pumped-up fringe and a generous coating of black eyeliner made peepers pop at shows like Louis Vuitton (shown here), Jonathan Saunders, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Trend: Statement Hair Color
Vibrantly hued powder transformed manes atThakoon (shown here) and Narciso Rodriguez, while bold streaks at Mulberry came courtesy of extensions.
Trend: Red Lipstick
Christian Dior’s orange-red pucker (shown here) is a spring standby. But, as designers Donna Karan and Anthony Vaccarello demonstrated, brownish and purplish reds are fair game too.
Faux blunt-bangs stole the spotlight at Hermès (shown here) and John Galliano; at Miu Miu, models’ own strands were molded and pinned over the forehead for a similar appearance.
Trend: Artsy Appliques
From Fendi’s gold leaf (shown here) and Givenchy’s sequins to Chanel’s pearls and Viktor & Rolf’s paper, all sorts of materials were adhered to the face for spring. Manish Arora, Mugler, and Gareth Pugh round out the creative bunch; plastic, glitter, and Minx nails served as their mediums.
Warmer weather calls for shorter hair—or at least a fake version of it. While wigs were utilized atEmporio Armani (shown here), tresses were tucked and pinned at Rag & Bone, Jil Sander, and Mark Fast.
Trend: Dramatic Navy Eyes
Creamy midnight-blue enhanced traditional black liner at Rodarte (shown here), Emanuel Ungaro, and Just Cavalli.
Trend: Retro Hairdos
The ’40s and ’50s were reference points for glamorous rolls and pinned-back waves; these styles were seen at Jean Paul Gaultier (pictured here), Prada, Sonia Rykiel, and Zac Posen.
Trend: Silvery Eyes
Etro’s brow-high dusting (shown here), Gianfranco Ferré’s circular shape, and Phillip Lim’s defined creases are proof that—no matter how you wear it—silver eye shadow is still trendy for spring.
Trend: Slick Strands
Whether dripping wet (Alexander Wang), damp (Alberta Ferretti), or half-dry (Giambattista Valli), slippery hair was popular on the spring catwalks. Translation: No blowout? No worries!
Trend: Strong Brows
Bold arches are in right now—and they’ll carry over into spring, too: Altuzarra(shown here), Moschino, and Derek Lam are just a handful of shows that embraced the eye-framing look.
Trend: Voluminous Locks
Hair was a shiny curtain of va-va-voom proportions atIssa (shown here), DKNY, and Versace.
Trend: Sun-Kissed Skin
