Catwalk to Sidewalk: Hair & Makeup

By: Kaitlin Jahn

The transition to fall is dreaded by some: kissing summer goodbye, packing away swimsuits and buying school supplies for back to school. However, fall also brings chilly weather, hot coffee, changing colors on the trees and the start of the holiday season. For the fashion industry, fall marks the start of a new season of styles and trends. While you’re bundling up in your favorite Burberry trench and Hunter boots, you want your hair and makeup to look just as in season as the rest of your outfit.

One fall beauty staple this year is berry colored lips. In this photo from Dolce & Gabbana’s Fall 2015 show, the model is wearing a bright raspberry hued lip color. Breaking from a traditional red, or even the recent dark lip color trend, this trend keeps a splash of color from summer year-round with bright, statement lips. You can try this look out at home by grabbing a Clinique chubby stick, a long lasting lip stain. Another option is to keep your summer lip color, but switch it up for a matte version.


Taking a note from the red carpet styles of the recent Emmy awards and Met Opera, what’s in for hair this fall is a shoulder length style with subtle waves and a middle part. This natural look is subtle enough for every day, yet styled enough to look effortlessly glamorous and put together. It looks amazing on short hair, long hair and everything in between. You can use a wide barrel curling iron on low heat to create gentle curls. Run your hands through your hair to create a slightly messier, effortless look.

The newest trend in nail color is using thinner lacquers in order to create a delicate watercolor effect on the nails, called jelly nail polish. This style of nail art thinly veils the nails with polish for a quick and put together look that also shows the natural nail underneath. This trend allows you to wear dark nail polish throughout fall without it looking too harsh.
