London Fashion Week Beauty: London College Of Fashion Autumn/Winter 2014

The hair and beauty at the London College of Fashion's Autumn/Winter 2014 show wasn't exactly straightforward.

Instead of just doing one look, Bumble & Bumble's stylist Lyndell Mansfield (she's the woman behind Paloma Faith's strawberry blonde hair) created six different styles for the girl models and four for the boys.

The first style for the boys was "graphic, directional and sharp". For the girls, one group was given big, backcombed hair described as "fluffy, energetic and alive." Another group was left with "romantic and serene" locks.

Mansfield varied the look by adding headbands or false fringes to some of the girls' looks. The result? No model looked the same.


The makeup was a different story.

Mac senior artist Andrew Gallimore summed up his look as "natural but with a twist." The makeup was neutral and minimal, with a "stuck-down" and slightly brushed up eyebrow.

Yes, the hair was the statement-maker here, but the skin looked flawless and serene. This was a kind of beauty look that every girl aspires too.
