Looks to Fall For

The fall runways were teeming with trends, many of which seemed hard to pull off in everyday life. But there are a few catwalk looks worth considering.

Local hair and beauty experts offered their favorite trends of the season for the fashionably fearless and those looking to spice up their look.

CENTER PART AND A HAIR TUCK (left)

In the colder months, tucking one’s hair into a scarf may seem like a matter of consequence rather than intentional style. But the Calvin Klein Collection and Tom Ford runways demonstrated this look as the go-to style for the season. This unusual trend is perfect for the fashionista, who isn’t afraid to be daring, says seasoned hair stylist Matt Matyi.

“This look draws attention to your face and looks vampy, which is on trend this year. And it is an easy way to pull off a more avant-garde look in an everyday environment,” he says. “This trend is something that could easily be accomplished at home. Tease your hair for volume, center part, and tuck.”

“I don’t think big hair should have ever gone away. It can be done in the real world, it’s just how you do it,” she says. “Just pre-curl your hair with a smaller curling iron. Dust some Schwarzkopf (OSiS) Dust It (Mattifying) Powder in the hair, and use a teasing comb to get the look.”

“Oxblood is a gorgeous alternative to the classic red, and it’s a little more daring,” she says.

Forte, who has worked with a variety of celebrities from Christina Millian to the Orlando Magic Cheerleaders, offers up this tip: “The trick to wearing oxblood and any other dark statement color is to go very light in the eyes. Nude shadow, thin eyeliner, and lots of mascara are all you need.”

“The platinum eye shadow was amazing and can easily be embraced for daily wear,” she says. “Make this look your own by prepping the lids with foundation and touch of clear lip gloss with a flat concealer brush. Next, dab on the glitter or metallic shadow.”

The sultry look pairs well with the triple French nails trend that was seen on a number of runways this season. Nail artist and hair stylist Nicole Gililland says it’s a trend that anyone can try.

“It’s fun but still has some sophistication to it,” Gililland says, adding that the trend is perfect for fall when pairing with deep merlots, bronze hues, or even black.
