New York Fashion Week is back — and if there’s anything to learn from its hiatus, it’s that there’s nothing like seeing stellar beauty looks IRL. As fashion month heads to London, see some of the most standout hair and makeup moments from the Spring 2022 shows in the Big Apple.
“Big, fun, and very camp,” is how Evanie Frausto, lead hairstylist for Bumble and bumble, described the gravity-defying hair at Christian Cowan. Complementary sheer lips and fresh complexions came courtesy of MUA and Smashbox Cosmetics lead artist Isamaya Ffrench.

Pops Of Neon
At Prabal Gurung, MUA Sil Bruinsma painted the inner and outer corners of models’ eyes with different colors (think hot pink, neon green, and cerulean). To let their eyes do the talking, he left the rest of their faces dewy and bronzed.
The Blonds are notorious for their club-ready looks. Moroccanoil artistic director Kevin Hughes crafted the glistening buns, which were inspired by “the glamor of the galaxy” and looked otherworldly with bleached brows and temple-grazing eyeshadow.
Pat McGrath gave the models at Anna Sui a pinky glow along the eyelids, with bits of metallic silver included throughout. Meanwhile, hair pro Garren served vacation-ready locks for the paradise-themed show.
At Proenza Schouler, Guido Palau, lead hairstylist for Bumble and bumble, crafted “modern punk braids,” using black elastics throughout to create a “binded-braid look.” For sleekness, the pro used a gel-oil before finishing things off with hairspray to lock everything in place.
Always one to create a spectacle, Thom Browne’s show was a true fantasy. To match the gray 3D floral designs included in the collection, Isamaya Ffrench painted silver flowers on models’ faces, while hairstylist James Pecis created tight twists.
The ’90s were out in full force at Altuzarra, where hair pro Odile Gilbert braided models’ front strands, leaving the rest of the hair relaxed and natural. Meanwhile, Dick Pagesaid he used “smudgy gray, rosewood, and [the] darkest black brown around the eyes” with a flushed cheek.

Jawara Wauchope was the force behind the incredible braids seen at Christian Siriano. With what appears to be colorful pieces of ribbon weaved in throughout, the look felt more like a gorgeous sculpture than a hairstyle.
There was no shortage of glamour and glitz at LaQuan Smith — and that includes the makeup. Crafted by Sheika Daley, the look featured dramatic cat eyes with coats of sparkly gold eyeshadow in bold colors like cobalt blue and red.
