Now that Fashion month has come to an end for another season, here’s our edit of the best backstage beauty looks …

New season, to us, means new beauty! And what could be more exciting than discovering the new backstage beauty trends we will be adopting next winter? This season we access backstage at LFW, to discover the key beauty trends to adopt. Because, despite what the majority think, fashion week isn’t just about clothes!

Here’s a close up view of the AW17 hair and make-up trends we loved this season.

The “Androgynous Pony”



The Androgynous Pony seen at Eudon Choi, created by Stephen Low for Neville Salon using L’Oreal Professionnel. A look Low, created to compliment the straight cut tailoring in Choi’s AW17 collection, which was inspired by Aldolf Loos the Austrian and Czech architect and theorist of modern architectural movement.

We love: its versatility!

Bonus: Session stylist and creative director of Neville Salon, Stephen Low shares the step by step guide to achieving this look at home.

Step 1: Create a low side parting and comb over using Tecni Art Volume Architect.

Step 2: Blow dry through to smooth the hair.

Step 3: Use Art Fix Design through the top section with Tecni Art Liss Control + to give an extreme sheen control and hold.

Step 4: Brush Down, tuck behind the ears and secure a low pony tail with elastic.

 The “Acid bright lips”



The Acid bright lips designed by Adam Decruz at Eudon Choi using Mac Cosmetics. To achieve this look, which varied slightly from model to model, Adam mixed two shades of retro matt liquid sipco with some Genuine orange pigment. This enabled a welcomed variation of matte and velvet finishes on the runway.

We love: The balance between the textured eyebrows, fresh face and bold lip. All hail the tango lips that complimented the utilitarian clothing, styled by Nobuko Yannawa ,to perfection. We can’t wait to start wearing the trend this summer.

 The “Saville Row wave”





The “Saville Row” wave seen at Daks, created by Stephen Low for Neville salon using L’Oreal Professionnel. Following creative director Filippo Scuffi’s brief, Low chose a soft, fluid and feminine wavy look that inspires effortless sophistication but encompasses a combination of femininity and androgyny.

We love: How effortless and sophisticated it looks!

Bonus: Session stylist and creative director of Neville Salon, Stephen Low shares the step by step guide to achieving this look at home.

Step 1: Prep the hair with French Girl Hair Messy Cliché for a matte finish

Step 2: Blow dry the lengths using fingers to smooth and keep ends straight.

Step 3: Use a large tong to create barely-there bends, leaving ends natural and straight.

Step 4: Shake Tecni art Super dust onto roots and lengths and gently massage the top section to create natural bedhead texture.

 The “Relaxed skin”



The Relaxed skin is an innovative and fresh new trend discovered at Daks, created by mua Maria Comparetto using Suqqu. This look was designed to meet the needs of sophisticated business women. Why relaxed? Each model was privy to a Suqqu signature Gankin massage backstage before their make up was applied. The award winning Japanese Cosmetic brand designed this massage technique to help stimulate the bones of the skull and enhance its curative powers. Combined with Maria’s classic make-up, we get a look which is both smart and assertive.

We love: Backstage beauty with a twist and especially if it involves a massage!

 The “love messages


The love messages seen at Sabinna

We love: Anyone who is a helpless romantic. So this “I still love you” message combined with playful outfits and vibrant colours get our seal of approval.
