THE UPDATE: The shampoo and straighten gives way to the blow-out and braid. "It's not about flat-ironed perfection now," says hair guru John Barrett. "Most of my clients opt for braids over straightening as it is a chic and practical alternative for today's busy woman."
HOW TO: Prep damp hair with Lavett & Chin Sea Salt Texturizing Mist and dry roughly, tong lengths with a T3 BodyWaver Curling Iron to create a natural wave, then plait and secure.
THE UPDATE: Move over foundation – it's all about the skin veil, as flawless bases were replaced by an outdoorsy, sun-blushed glow on the runway. "There was an emphasis on light," says MAC's Terry Barber. "Foundations gave way to skin that was enveloped in subtle veils, and complexions took on an ethereal glow."
HOW TO: Achieve radiance by applying highlighter to your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose, Cupid's bow and temples.
