The Best Beauty Looks from NYFW Spring 2013

While the clothing and accessories always take center stage during Fashion Week, the visions designers have for their beauty looks are just as strong as the ones they have for their collections. Take a look at some of the most inspiring, eye-catching hair

Marc Jacobs

Guido Palau for Redken created a rock 'n' roll, "party girl" look inspired by Edie Sedgwick for the Marc Jacobs show. He pulled the hair into a disheveled, low-slung ponytail with a deep side part, and teased near the crown for extra volume. Francois Nars wanted to give Edie's classic makeup look a modern update, so he concentrated on strong, square eyebrows, pale skin (no blush or lipstick!) and lots of mascara.

We loved the colorful headscarves at the Marc by Marc Jacobs show, and Redken's Guido Palau made sure to create a hairstyle that perfectly accented them. He wanted the models to look like they'd done their hair themselves, so he simply twisted and pinned up the hair in the back of the head before each scarf was tied on.

Wes Gordon's uptown girls got down and dirty this season: Bumble and bumble's Laurent Philippon created a rough, dreadlock-inspired style that was a surprising contrast to the collection. We've never seen bedhead look so good!

The Tory Burch girl is fresh-faced and a bit bohemian this season—we love how carefree and romantic these messy fishtail braids look.

Theyskens' Theory

You may have noticed that designer Olivier Theyskens—who had become known for his signature long locks—recently chopped off all of his hair into a short, one-length bob. This could certainly be the inspiration for the hair by Odile Gilbert at Theykens' Theory. Each model in the show walked wearing a wig of the same style— but in a wide variety of colors—and each hairpiece was hand-dyed by Gilbert. She achieved the grungey look by leaving the wigs a bit wet.

Phillip Lim got a little grunge with his latest collection, which was artfully reflected in the hair for the show. The style was purposefully messy and the bedhead-eque frizz was pinned up in the back.

Prabal Gurung

We are counting the days until Halloween—actually, it's unlikely that we'll wait that long—so we can try out these blood-spattered nails from the Prabal Gurung show. Tracylee from Sally Hansen simply dripped dark red nail polish onto the models' naked nails and connected the drops at the top.

Prabal Gurung

The beauty at Prabal Gurung was ethereal and haunting—the designer wanted the girls to look like "fallen angels." Charlotte Tilbury for MAC kept skin pure with plenty of moisturizer. To amp up the spookiness, she created a very sculptural face, and created the illusion of hollowed-out cheekbones and eye sockets. As for the hair, Paul Hanlon wanted it to look a little bit greasy and lived-in—the slicked-down style was clean without being too delicate.

Derek Lam

Tom Pecheux for Estée Lauder kept the makeup light and delicate at Derek Lam, applying a romantic wash of aqua eyeshadow on each model, with a touch of white in the corners for added glow. The hair by Orlando Pita was just as easy—a side part and intentionally imperfect styling gave the models that cool, undone "urban girl" look that we all lust for.

Alexander Wang

As usual, the beauty look at Alexander Wang this season was minimalistic, modern, and slightly androgynous. But, before you get bored, remember that the designer is known for always having a trick or two up his sleeve—this season, his girls glowed in the dark!

Diane Kendal for NARS kept the face simple with moisturizer and powder foundation, but while the brunette girls walked down the runway with strong, boyish eyebrows, the ladies with lighter hair had their brows bleached for a luminous effect under the finale blacklights. For extra glow, Kendal accented these models' faces with dewy illuminator on top of the cheeks and just above the eyebrows.

Guido Palau for Redken—who claims he's always working to reinvent the ponytail—drew the girls' hair into a very low, slicked-back iteration with a center part. He highlighted the dual texture—very smooth in the front with plenty of movement in the back—and to make the classic style a bit more interesting, Palau added a strip of duct tape down each model's part. Some girls got black tape and others got white, and, as you could have probably guessed, those with the latter glowed on the runway.

rag & bone

Guido Palau for Redken went with a sporty, '90s theme for the girls' hair at rag & bone. This tomboyish look exudes easy sophistication—which could also perfectly describe the collection. Guido kept the style wet and dramatic in front, but the back was a cascade of loose, feminine waves.

It's baaaaack... rainbow hair, that is. Peter Som kept his version of the candy-colored trend messy and distressed this season. Playful pastel eyeshadows served as the finishing touch to this Crayola-bright beauty look.
