The strongest beauty trends at New York Fashion Week During the SS24 shows in the Big Apple, we witnessed a return of arcs and minimalcore 4.0

Although it is now quite retrograde to think that what is shown on the catwalks in terms of beauty looks will necessarily be shown next season, the catwalk shows are always a good starting point to see what is actually becoming a trend. Whether it's imitated now or next summer. After all, social media, especially Instagram and TikTok, have this exquisite power to harness everything in the here and now, even though designers are calling them trends of next spring summer 2024. But whether you're wearing these looks now or saving them for next year, we don't really care. What we do care about is a rundown of the three beauty trends that New York Fashion Week brought to the runway. You'll want to wear bows and ribbons like you did when you were a little girl, or crystals and pink eyeshadow on your eyelids like mermaids. Or, for the minimalists, looks that look sober and watery, but with attention to the smallest detail.

Bows and ribbons, in all shapes and sizes

Call it what you will, balletcore or cutecore. The fact is that hairbands are back as a trend stronger than ever. Sometimes decorative, sometimes nostalgic, they complement simple, elegant looks and enhance the charming aesthetic of satin dresses and bow tops. Sandy Liang combines them alternately with organza flowers in pink and black. Collina Stada braids them into Rasta-style micro-braids to inspire new brides. Christian Siriano uses them instead of lace to create a corset-like look under the braided crops. Alice & Olivia, on the other hand, places them like brooches directly under an elegant braided chignon.

Normcore reinterpreted

Translation: make-up and hair simple and straightforward, but with attention to detail. Starting with Michael Kors, who opts for the combination of a natural but extreme glow and a pulled-up braid. Adeam, on the other hand, creates an Italian-style hairstyle, with a low chignon and tufts framing the face, and combines it with piercings on the face. Tory Burch, on the other hand, goes for the luxe look, with very precise but natural furs and low braids held together with jewelled clips.

The mermaid style is always current

Despite making a big comeback last summer, the mermaid effect never tyres. Jason Wu and Who Decides War create wet hairstyles with fringe that looks like tentacles. Anna Sui and Mansur Gavriel go all out for the aquatic look, thanks to smokey eyes in a thousand shades of blue and teal. Tara Babylon, on the other hand, doesn't miss out on rhinestones with pearls, combined with a dusty pink eyeshadow to create a modern version of the mermaid in the city.
