With another season of Toronto Fashion Week wrapped, we spot the standout beauty trends for next season. From edgy and earthy to squeaky-clean beauty queen, there’s something for everyone.
The Trendsetter: Jeremy Laing
Pantene hairstylist Justin German created an edgy take on an old staple: the low ponytail. A deep side-part divided playful rows twists on one side and sleek, straight locks on the other. Using two strands of hair, German created a rope effect to modernize the cornrow. “Braids have been around for so long, so it’s kind of a nice twist,” he said.
The Laidback Babe: Chloé Comme Parris
It was California dreamin’ at Chloé Comme Parris, as M.A.C makeup artist Melissa Gibson took cues from the cool crowd at Venice Beach. “She’s young and hip,” explained the pro. “Everybody looks at her and envies her, but she doesn’t look like she’s trying too hard.” Her standout feature is her flawless glowy complexion, complemented with textured, braided tresses that complete the effortless cool-girl look we all strive for after a day at the beach.
The Girl Next Door: Pink Tartan
Groomed brows, glowing cheeks, bubblegum lips and the perfect curvy mane made for a soft, feminine style. Redken hairstylist Jorge Joao described the hair as playful and vintage, as he created full, bouncing waves with a wide-barreled curling iron. The simple look has a timeless innocence and subtle sensuality, just like the girl next door.
The Busy Body: Joe Fresh
A girl-on-the-go’s beauty rule of thumb? Pull it all together in a flash with bright lipstick. Maybelline makeup artist Grace Lee created a matte pink pout to stand out against a soft complexion. Models looked bright-eyed thanks to a touch of shine in the inner corner, groomed brows and curled lashes. Just like that, she’s ready with no time wasted.
