(Relaxnews) – Here’s our pick of the best hair and makeup trends from the Spring 2015 shows in New York Fashion Week

No makeup 
After another season featuring plenty of ‘nude’ looks all over the runways (Victoria Beckham was one of many designers to go for a ‘no-makeup’ makeup look), this fashion week took things further with Marc Jacobs sending out models without any makeup at all (admittedly, François Nars did fess up to covering the odd pimple). How to work the trend at home? It’s all about hydrating and caring for your skin for a flawless, natural look, oh and model-like bone structure and plenty of self-confidence will also help.

Slicked back hair
Gelled-back hair was the big story this season, matching the minimalist sporty trend in clothing, and the spartan approach to makeup looks. At Edun, models had scraped back locks held in place with simple black bands, while the girls at Prabal Gurung had their tresses slicked and center-parted. Suno also went all “Wolf of Wall Street,” with hair gelled into side partings. Reach for your hairbrush and copious amounts of product.

Quirky touches

With all this pared-back minimalism going on there were bound to be a few oddball ideas thrown into the mix to shake things up a bit. The rows of fake eyebrow rings applied by James Kaliardos at Rodarte were the perfect antidote to the ‘effortlessness’ going on elsewhere: somehow silly and serious at the same time. The girls at the fabulous retro-rock festival-themed show by Tommy Hilfiger also got metallic stars applied to their faces for some glamorous, quirky fun.
