Hair and Makeup from the Spring/Summer 2015 Collections


Here are a collection of our favourite hair and makeup looks from the Spring/Summer 2015 fashion shows, all the way from New York, London, Milan and Paris! A few beauty trends we noticed: glowing skin, strong brows, nude (or bold red) lips, and sleek hair. Which are your favourite looks?

Lauren Conrad Marries William Tell


Lauren Conrad tied the knot with her long-time love, William Tell on September 13 2014 in a rustic-chic ceremony on the California coastline. What do you think of her glamourous and classic look? We love the stunning gown by Badgley Mischka. Here’s a closer look:

A closer look at her hairstyle. She opted for a hair change mid day from having it 1) all down in loose waves with a broach that was attached to her veil, to then 2) a very simple, no volume, half up/half down look with it very loose towards the front & secured with another hair piece broach in the back.


The Fancy Face Inc. verdict: Although Lauren Conrad looks as gorgeous as she always does, that is exactly what we are not in love with about the hair & makeup look she went for on her wedding day. We would have loved to see her show us a slightly more fancy & glamorous side of herself! However, with that being said, the look she went for was timeless and I’m sure she will never look back in 20 years and say, “What the heck was I thinking!!?”. Overall we give her look an 8 out of 10 on this look. We love the loose waves, the blonde highlights and the dewy & fresh makeup look on her. What do you think?
