Every fashion month, I look most forward to London Fashion Week. Though it’s the shortest, I find it to always be the most creative in terms of fashion and beauty. Designers in London actually take chances, creating avant garde looks that are incredibly inspirational and actually exciting to look at. For me, even more exciting than the runway, is the backstage. It’s a great look at the beauty process and gives you an insider view at what it takes to put together an amazing look.

If you’re already sick of the ‘70s, get excited because there’s a new decade on trend––the ‘80s. In London, at J.W. Anderson, the clothes and the hair took some guidance from the early parts of the decade. Backstage, the beauty pros went new wave by saturating models hair in whip and twisting and pulling it into a chignon. To finish the look, they secured the bun with a cheap plastic comb often found in London’s discount stores. This “I’ve-have-been-partying-all-night” hair was well aligned with the ‘80s great taste/ bad taste mood of the show and a certainly a stand out in the sea of ’70s waves. Excited about this look? Get yourself a plastic comb and dance to Wham! See the best looks from the show in the style notes. –– Michelle Rotbart

tom ford

Tom Ford kicked off London Fashion week in none other than Los Angeles, so it’s no surprise the beauty looks in his Fall ’15 collection pulled inspiration from Old Hollywood –– as well as his usual sex appeal. Per, the inspiration for the hair was a lot of volume on top, like Tippi Hedren, the Hitchcock heroine. To create the looks, the beauty team slicked strands back and off the face and teased the crown, blasting it with a texturizing spray. After pulling hair to one side, extensions were added and braided into a bun. The final look was prim, but not entirely proper––a great interpretation of what Tom Ford sees as LA beauty.
