Blowed out Hair in Sine Qua Non Hair Salon in Chicago
Sine Qua Non is thrilled to be working with Salon Ambassador and blogger Dani of Mermaid Waves. here are her thoughts on what beauty trends are in our future!


Fashion month came and went, but what will continue to stay with us are the amazing beauty trends that made their debut on the runway. Fashion Week isn’t all about the clothes, it’s about the entire look. Some of today’s most popular beauty trends first walked down the runway. In September, beauty looks were all about the sleek center part and the bold lip, this time around textured hair and bold eyes took center stage (or runway). As a fashion blogger, I live for the pieces that make it down the runway, but the beauty looks always seem to grab my attention. Each show has a unique beauty look to compliment or contrast with the designer’s collection.

Here are some of my favorite beauty trends I spotted at New York Fashion Week, and how to rock them everyday.

Bold Lids

Blues and Reds waltzed down the runways of designers such as Oscar de la Renta, Zadig & Voltaire, and Prabal Gurung. These primary hues were found on the eyelids of each model in the form of geometric eyeliner and bold shadow. Though this trend may seem a little intimidating to wear on your next brunch date, try a subtle take on this bold look by lining your upper lid with an electric blue or red liner. The thin line is subtle enough to rock for daytime but will give your eyes a major pop.

Upside-down Eyes

I live for bold, beautiful lashes so I am all about this next trend. Upside-down eyes were seen on the runway at Jeremy Scott and Tadashi Shoji. This playful look brings all the attention to the bottom lash line for major eye-opening drama. To recreate this look at home, add a double layer of black mascara to the bottom lashes and stick to a single coat on top. For added drama, add a little sparkle to the inner corner of your eye.

Lived-In Texture

Many designers opted for a “natural” hair look to accompany their collections. Designers like Aexander Want, Tanya Taylor, and Malan Breton kept things beachy and relaxed with messy waves and “I woke up like this’ inspired locks. To achieve this texturized look for yourself, let your hair air-dry overnight in braids or twists. In the morning, brush out your hair and pop in a few loose curls with your favorite curling iron. Shake out the curls and voila– you basically “woke up like this”.
