The major theme of most of the hair for Spring 2014 at New York Fashion Week? Low-maintenance styling. How else could you describe the headbands, low ponytails, and just-throw-some-product-in-it wet hair that we saw coming down the runways? In today's Beauty Review, we're breaking down these three trends and telling you how to wear them.
Rachel Zoe sent her models on safari for her Spring 2014 show, and they had hair to match. Lead hairstylist Antonio Corral Calero wanted to create a style that was heavy on texture but still pretty. An oversize braid with smaller plaits woven into it fit the bill. Calero added loads of texture to make it seem like the hair was full of wind and sand, as if the girls had been hiking through the desert all day. He broke down the braid and gave us tips on how to achieve this incredible style at home. Watch the video, then check out our gallery of the full beauty look to nab some serious inspiration.
Fashion Week street style is an endless source of wardrobe inspiration — some of it achievable, some if it better left to the pros. For the Spring '14 shows, we've seen ladylike-looks aplenty, plaid and leather pulled off to a grungy effect, and enough bag and shoe inspo to last a lifetime (almost). One super-cute look we couldn't help but spotlight is the off-shoulder-top — a feminine cut adding a welcome dose of pretty to edgy street style looks. Feeling inspired? Head into the gallery to shop our top ten off-the-shoulder finds.
New York Fashion Week wasn't just an all-American do — some of our greatest fashion design and modelling exports were creating a stir as well. From design duo Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke to front-of-camera favourites like Ruby Jean Wilson, it was impossible to escape the Australian influence at the 2014 Spring New York Fashion Week shows.
