After Fashion Week, we all covet the designer clothes, and beautiful and hair makeup seen on the runways. Unfortunately, most of us “mere mortals” can’t afford the high-end fashion spotlighted at the shows. But we can recreate Fashion Week looks at home for much less. The experts at Barely Xtensions offer tips and advice to help everyone look and feel like a celebrity model – regardless of whether we’re actually strutting down the red carpet.
“Fashion Week debuts the hottest trends in clothes, accessories, hair and beauty, and we all watch with interest to see what the models will be wearing. The enviable fashion and beauty makes us all wish we were rich supermodels, but these looks can be recreated on budget,” says Nadine Mullings, National Account Manager with Barely Xtensions.
She offers the following tips to look like celebrity supermodels, even if you (sadly!) don’t have their bank account:
Get Hair Like a Supermodel
The fashion was out-of-this-world (literally—there were even some alien-inspired looks). One popular trend was super-long hair in all sorts of styles, from stick straight to luscious waves.
Extensions—like the ones offered at Barely Xtensions—can help you get those perfectly enviable long locks, no matter how long your hair actually is.
Romantic and Dreamy
Fashion Week saw trends that were fairy tale dreamy, (ethereal, high piled and flowing with flowers). Romantic looks were all over the runways, with dreamy half-up, half-down styles everywhere from Paris to London to NYC. Models were sporting all sorts of beautiful braids, including classic French, Dutch and fishtails.
Learn how to create these braids at home— your stylist can show you how to do it or watch YouTube tutorials for step-by-step instructions. Hint: braids work best on hair that’s not squeaky clean, so try this look when you’ve skipped a day or two of shampooing. Use dry shampoo to avoid the greasy look, especially at the roots.
Slick and Sleek
Hair worn slick and sleek is definitely fleek. From slicked-back down to sleek back buns were also popular on the runways. So, grab some gel and hair elastics for a look that’s appropriate anywhere — from a big work meeting to a hot night club. Buns twisted from the nape of the neck up were especially creative.
Rock the Accessories
Hair accessories are having a moment! Sparkly barrettes, glitzy bobby pins, and fancy headbands were all spotlighted on the Fashion Week runways. Luckily, this trend is super easy (and affordable) to achieve at home.
Find embellished hair clips at beauty supply stores like Sally Beauty Supply. Try layering multiple blinged-out bobby pins, rocking faux pearl barrettes or looking romantic with a soft, velvet headband, and your hair will look like a supermodel’s for less.
