Hair stylist Sam McKnight (@sammcknight1) kept it simple at Burberry by styling models hair into low slung ponytails. To the untrained eye the hair almost looks wet, but as Sam revealed with his telling hashtag (#modernhairspray) it’s all down the power of the right styling products.
She’s the queen of high fashion nails and she also takes a pretty good picture. Marian Newman (@mariannewman) has made us fall in love with nail art again with this girly creation. Using freshly pressed flowers and a pealy, pink nail shade it's pretty perfect if you ask us.
ES magazine Beauty Editor Katie Service (@katieservicebeauty) captured this backstage snap of the extreme lash look makeup artist Val Garland created at Gareth Pugh. Now, we’re huge fans of lash extensions here at Treatwell but we will be adding this look to our treatment menu? Possibly not…
Fun! Mixing makeup and crayon time together can only be a good thing in our books. Makeup artist Andrew Gallimore (@andrewgallimakeup) snapped his own very creative approach to makeup. We heart.
This is Spring makeup at it’s very best. Glowing skin. Check. Pop of coral on the lips. Check. Makeup artist Lyndsey Alexander (@lyndseyalexander) perfectly captured the upbeat mood backstage at the show. We think her makeup is enough to make anyone smile.
Flat, is the new name for the french plait according to hairstylist Syd Hayes (@sydhayeshair). In this picture taken moments before the girls walked out onto the catwalk, you can see just how striking it looks on all hair colours. Practical and chic.
Fuschia coloured hair plus a ‘crimped hair stamp’ (it’s the latest thing don’t you know) make for one very striking picture. Snapped by Syd Hayes (@sydhayeshair), it’s more proof that the pink hair trend is not going ANYWHERE…
The front row couldn’t get enough of the beauty rebels at Versus. Here, Grazia Editor Natasha Pearlman (@natashagrazia) snaps Bella Hadid showing off the dishevelled beehive and graphic black eyeshadow beauty look that sent the show viral.
More evidence that we’re going to have to practice our plaiting skills come Spring next year. Swedish hairstylist Ali Pirzadeh (@alipirzadeh) pulled out all the stops with an oh so intricate piece of braid work at Hyein Antwerp. Replicating this look on over 20 models is no mean feat.
Another mega Marian Newman nail moment. This time it was statement nail chains backstage at Ryan Lo Studio. Already trending on Instagram, this is one trend to watch for the very fashion-forward. Word to the wise, Marian advises nail chains are only compatible with acrylic nails, not natural nails so please don't attempt to DIY this look!

Mums. What are they on about, your skirt’s too short? Don’t they know that’s cool to wear like, tonnes of bronzer? But the older you get, the more you realise you probably should have taken their 'mum beauty' advice about not plucking your eyebrows into millimetre-thick lines, or straightening your natural curls into a poker-straight sheet. Don’t worry - ignoring all your mum’s advice is a rite of passage - but so is the inevitable acceptance that they were probably right (about beauty tips, but also about that one boyfriend who was truly bad news). In honour of those special women…Read more
Unless you’ve been living under a rock these past few months, you’ll have noticed that the fashion world has gone a little holographic crazy as of late, with psychedelic prints and products popping up just about everywhere (not least in your social media feed!). Well luckily for us, it hasn’t taken long for the beauty world to follow suit, with the same mesmerising shine infiltrating into our beauty products now too - and we’d by lying if we said we weren’t just a little bit obsessed. Inspired by futuristic runway looks and street style icons, this meeting of the minds between…View the board
As lighter nights and sunnier mornings feel just a hop, skip and jump away, it's time to welcome in the new Spring beauty trends with a bang. Fresh faces, fun fringes and a colour palette that'll lift the spirits, the big beauty picture for Spring is anything but boring. Now, if you're anything like me, your feet might still be firmly stuck in cosy, sheepskin boots but that's no reason not to let yourself dip a toe into what's to come. Here's my edit of the trends that will transport you... By Liz HambletonRead more
