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!

The beauty industry knows that eyebrows are your face’s greatest accessory and if the catwalks are anything to go by, we’ll be seeing a resurgence in beautifully bushy brows. But where to look for browspiration? (That’s “eyebrow inspiration”, beauty fans). While Cara Delevingne may be Her Eyebrowness of 2016, there’s a new pack of stars to get to know now. And the best bit: they’re just one swipe away. Thanks to the joys of Instagram, we’re inundated with #browgoals, but the problem is where to start? Helpfully, we’ve teamed up with Jessica Vince the editor and founder of Dressr, the Instagram trends website,…View the board
Ok, I’m just going to say it. Most of the hair trends you see on the catwalk will never actually translate into real life so don’t beat yourself up when that (crimped-pigtail look) doesn’t work for you. As a seasoned beauty director I have learnt that the secret is to take details of the trend, and apply it your everyday hair, rather than trying to pull off the whole look. This week I went backstage with Wella at the Tommy Hilfiger and Preen SS/18 shows to scope out the looks all of us can take inspiration from… By Liz Hambleton Book…Read more
