    It’s the most wonderful time of the year… No not Christmas, Fashion Month.

    Much like their fashion counterparts, the beauty looks of the shows set the precedent for the year ahead. New York Fashion Week was over in the blink of an eye, so now it’s London’s turn to show present us with the biggest hair and make-up trends 2019 will bring.

    So far we’ve seen nods to the Golden Age inspired by 1950s fashion, glitter and gold leaf, heavy heavy blusher and barnets worthy of the great Dolly Parton.

    At Ashish, enormous wigs were coiffed and blow dried into huge voluminous styles complete with bejewelled barrettes, while in the make-up department different coloured glitter was applied to the lips and eyes, catching the light at every turn. It was seriously extra and we loved it.

    Meanwhile at Halpern, bright chroma eyeshadow was applied to the lids before layering cracked gold leaf over the top for a seriously cool look.

    Hair was kept pretty natural, apart from a few marcel waves to frame the golden eyes in a nod to 1920s fashion.

    If we had to pick out one specific, wearable trend, it’d be the ponytail, which has appeared several times this season as the understated yet chic hairstyle of the day. But season after season emphasis is placed on individuality – sometimes models are even asked what look they would like.
