AUTUMN/WINTER 2016/17 BEAUTY TRENDS

GLITTER AND GLEAM

Go glam or go home was the memo from catwalk kings Burberry, Kenzo and Oscar De La Renta who fully embraced all that glitters. Ensure your party look is on fleek with subtle flicks and bold eye shadow popping with glitter, sparkles, sequins and studs.

WAVE AFTER WAVE

From a gentle ripple effect to glamorous lacquered curls, Stella McCartney, Dries Van Noten and Marc Jacobs took it back to the 1920’s and rocked the retro finger wave hairstyle. For smooth, frizz-free locks try a Keratin treatment for the perfect finish.

RAISED BROWS

With Dsquared2, Moncler Gamme Rouge and Givenchy making bleached brows a runway staple, it’s time to lighten up and dare to bare. Book in for beach brows to highlight your facial features.

READ BETWEEN THE LINES

Phillip Lim, Laquan Smith and Taoray Wang were united in their love of nail art for Autumn/Winter 16-17, which saw simple lines separating autumnal block hues among other designs

THE DARK SIDE

If there was one beauty trend that dominated the catwalks this year, it was the dark lip. Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Rodarte pioneered dark pouts rocking plum, rouge and noir shades.

GO WITH THE FROW

After once holding one of the top hair spots of the 80’s, crimped hair is back with a bang – but this time it’s bigger and bolder than ever before. Follow in the steps of Gucci, Alexander McQueen and Rene Furterer, and pump up the volume for Fall.

A SILVER LINING

Molten metallics made their mark this season with Creatures of the Wind, Jill Stuart and Roland Mouret leading the way with the newest talon trend. Gigi Hadid was an early adapter with her Dhs7,000 mani wrap ­– get the look with your favourite TITO shade.
