Carmen Marc Valvo’s Spring 2015 collection was inspired by 1950’s Hollywood glamour a la Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis and even Cary Grant. Reminiscent of the cinema, the collection featured classic silhouettes with subtle details in shades of silver, black and white.

Summer is almost over, but the arrival of fall is a great excuse to encourage your clients to refresh their beauty look. Below, Jill Marcordes, Executive Director of Cosmetology & Nail Technology at Tricoci University of Beauty Culture, highlights two hot hair trends for Fall 2014.

Edward Tricomi of Warren-Tricomi Salons created a sexy, messy, undone hair look, reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot and Charlotte Gainsbourg, to complement the Hanely Mellon Spring/Summer 2015 presentation at New York Fashion Week. Playing off of the exotic travel theme of the collection, this look can be achieved quickly and easily.

Nate Rosenkranz for Alterna Haircare created two distinct looks at the Deola Sagoe and Clan Classics S/S 2015 shows at New York Fashion Week. The inspiration at Deola Sagoe was classic, 1940's glamour, while 90's club kid/rave girl looks ruled the Clan Classics runway.

OPI created a rich gold nail look for Clover Canyon’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 runway show on Wednesday, September 10 at Lincoln Center. Lead nail artist Miss Pop transformed nails and toes using OPI with a Nice Finn-ish, a coppery gold hue that gave the look of jewelry against the collection’s bold prints and bright colors. 

On Thursday, September 11, OPI joined J. Mendel at Lincoln Center for the brand's Spring/Summer 2015 presentation. Lead nail artist Miss Pop created a natural, minimalist manicure using Matte Top Coat on a clean, lightly filed nail. This look highlights the matte nail as a new nude for spring, allowing beautiful natural nail tones to peek through.[Images courtesy of OPI]
