While New Yorkers are saying hello to fall, this past week fashionistas were saying hello to Spring 2014. Beside the celebrities, parties and of course clothes, the makeup and hair was what everyone was talking about. Beauty is what brings the collections together and helps the clothes to make sense.
It seemed like many of the runway looks included shiny rhinestones, glittery pins and barrettes for the hair, as well as clean flawless skin with pink lips and metallic eyes.
Take a look at a few of my favorite beauty and hair styles from the Spring 2014 runways.
Do you think you will try any of these looks next year? Leave a comment below and tell me why or why not.
