The Five-Strand Braid That’s Taking NYFW By Storm

The Five-Strand Braid That’s Taking NYFW By Storm

Statement hair is where it’s at this season, with quirky braiding really taking the spotlight. At Marissa Webb we spotted something a bit more exciting than your averagebraid, thanks to those clever clogs at Tresemmé who created their #5StrandBraid – (yup it’s so cool it was given its own hashtag). It looks complicated but is actually oh-so simple to recreate. Watch the video to learn how.

The look needs to have volume and texture to work, so why not try the BW Weft Extensions By Beauty Works, £49, that were used for the show?

It’s genius and, let's be honest, a chic alternative to your everyday ponytail.

London Fashion Week Braids To Try Tonight

As the first day of London Fashion Week gets into full swing, we're already seeing some jaw-dropping creativity, not least when it comes to hairstyles. At Teatum Jones, hairstylists at Bumble And Bumble created an amazing updo using cornrows. Starting from the very top of the head, the team split the hair into tiny sections, braiding them close to the scalp and down towards the ends. They then lifted the braids up and tied them together at the top of the head to create a rather kooky result!

Watch the video to see the team in action.

And if you want to attempt this look yourself, use a Denman Tail Comb, £2.09, and secure each braid with Superdrug's Poly Hair Bands, £2.09.

Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser's Invisible Oil, £30

"I put a little bit of Bumble and Bumble’s Invisible Oil through the ends of my hair before blow-drying. It’s lightweight, which is good because my hair is fine so I try to stay away from heavy products."

Move Over Cara, There's A New Power Brow In Town ...

The power brow is in town

Just when you thought eyebrows couldn't get anymore statement, make-up artists at NYFW go and flip the script. Cue punk-inspired rings along each brow at Rodarte (we're confident those aren't real piercings – ouch!) and bright blue brows at Badgley Mischka.

Rather than just existing to frame the rest of the face, eyebrows are now taking on a kooky life of their own – and we couldn't be more inspired! With London Fashion Week just about to kick off, we predict a lot more weird and wacky brows on the horizon!

Stay tuned...

Farrah Fawcett: Get The Look

Your step-by-step guide to glowing skin and Studio 54 glamour, courtesy of Max Factor

An era remembered fondly for its sense of freedom and glitter-laden glamour, the 1970s remain a popular reference point for fashion designers and make-up artists alike.

"It was a decade of change in make-up," Max Factor make-up artist Caroline Barnes says. "It really felt like radiance and energy was pumped into hair and make-up, giving the 70s that feel of a new, relaxed femininity and experimentation."

Celebrating 100 Years of Glamour, Max Factor challenged its global creative designer, Pat McGrath, and beauty muse, Gwyneth Paltrow, to put a modern spin on this iconic beauty look.

Inspired by screen siren Farrah Fawcett, is Gwyneth a fan? "I LOVE this look!"

We'll take that as a yes, then! Follow our step-by-step guide to achieve it at home…

  1. Apply Whipped Crème Foundation with either a brush or sponge to achieve a demi-matte finish. This full and even coverage gives a smooth-skin look reminiscent of the 1970s.
  2. Studio 54-inspired beauty is all about the cheeks, so start by dusting Flawless Perfection Blush in Mulberry across the cheekbones using circular brush motions. Add extra intensity by switching to Classic Pink, sweeping from the apples up to the temples for that dazzling disco look.
  3. To contrast the cheeks, create a coppery explosion on the eyes by starting with Wild Shadow Pot in Feral Brown and applying it to the centre of the lids. Continue by blending in Savage Rose at the inner corners and finish with sweeping strokes of Auburn Envy at the outer areas.
  4. For extra glamour, emphasise the eyes using Glide & Define Eyeliner in Black. Draw widening lines along both the upper and lower lid rims, tapering towards the outer corners for spellbinding intensity and drama.
  5. Build up two or three layers of False Lash Effect Mascara in Black for lashes that are volumised to the max with intense length.
  6. Follow the theme of warm, vibrant tones by completing the look with Colour Elixir Giant Pen Stick in Hot Chocolate on the lips. Use the tapered end to first line the lips, then angle it to fill them in with colour.
