London Fashion Week: A rundown of the Spring/Summer 2019 beauty trends

711 1024 Vanity Van

London Fashion Week has officially come to a close, and with it, a whole new set of hair, make-up and nail trends to set the tone for Spring/Summer. From how to elevate a tired hairstyle with staple hair accessories, to how to rock an electric, neon nail, this season’s backstage beauty offerings definitely didn’t fall short. Vanity Van is giving you the ultimate rundown on all of the best hair, makeup and nail moments from the runways, plus our personal favourite beauty looks from London Fashion Week. 

Hair 

In case you haven’t heard, hair accessories are the styling staple to watch out for this season. From puffy headbands, to head wraps, and jewelled hair slides, London Fashion Week was dotted with signature hair accessories, and Simone Rocha is the designer that we all need to thank. The accessorising trend has been gaining momentum over the past few seasons, with Rocha’s SS18 runway playing a huge role in making the effortlessly feminine hair clip coveted by all. With designers such as Michael Kors and Anna Sui taking Rocha’s lead and giving their runway a regal vibe, the hair clip is sure to be a party season staple for us all in the Spring/Summer season.  

London Fashion Week Colin Horgan On/Off X Graphic EyeMakeup

From fresh, glowy skin to nude lips, natural simplicity is usually the go-to at London Fashion Week, but this season, it looks as though the exaggerated look is reigning supreme. With bold shades taking the spotlight on the eyes, this season’s runway looks were nothing but simple. This look from the Colin Horgan On/Off X show during London Fashion week is proving that the bold, graphic eye trend that was all the rage last season is here to stay. Give your everyday eye look a splash of the 80’s whilst keeping the rest of the face natural to create the perfect balance of minimal and daring.

 

Nails

Nail art is always a runway staple, and London Fashion Week has served up a plethora of fresh nail inspiration to obsess over. Neon is always trending in fashion, and now, it’s extending to your manicure. Nail artist, Mei Kawajiri, worked her manicure magic to create this design for the Philipp Plein show. You can achieve this neon nail look with a simple coat of electric gel polish, or if you want to put your manicure skills to the test, try out a daring nail design. Whether you’re searching for something exaggerated, playful, or daring this Spring/Summer, this energising nail trend is perfect for everyone. 

If you’re still on the search for more of the latest trends over the past year, check out our blog post on the AW18 beauty trends. Which of these trends will you be trying out this season?

H&M Beauty Tour nail treatments

Beauty experiences – how to use Vanity Van to wow your customers

1024 576 Vanity Van

With mothers day fast approaching we have busy weekend creating innovative beauty experiences for a few of our retail and brand clients helping to say a big warm thank you to their valued customers.

H&M Beauty Tour nail treatments beauty experiencesWhat do customers really want?

They want recognition, they want to feel valued by your brand. One of the easiest ways to achieve this impact is to create an experience to draw over the customers to your activation, entice them in and then make them feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

Beauty experiences are an amazing way to do this. As a brand you get the chance to personally connect with each individual who takes part in the activity building rapport and gratitude for the pampering. As a captive audience, your guests can learn about new products or the aims of your campaign in comfort. You can even dig deeper and use this connection time to ask their opinions, probe them about their likes and dislikes, find out what makes them tick.

airstream shopping centre beauty experiencesBuild it and they will come

Its important that you use the right surroundings to create this vibe. For indoor events and activities, we can create a whole impactive glamourous salon experience or a relaxing spa vibe. We are experts in pulling together bespoke looks for different themes or to work with your brand.

For large indoor events and outdoor shopping centres you need something with the WOW factor that will stand out, capture attention and draw the crowds. A double decker bus or a stunning airstream salon will do the trick and are super popular with our clients.

Branded buses are great for height for long distances and to send a message far and wide. They also have the room for bigger teams and more space customers to engage. But the airstreams are the most popular – iconic, eye-catching and kitsch they are a show stopper in terms of the crowds – especially our 1950’s themed unit – shes a beauty and always the centre of attention at events.

Vanity Van double decker bus beauty experiences

What kind of treatments should you use?

The key with these activations is high turnover but high impact. So we normally opt for express treatments tailored to suit the activations aims and the end customer. So for example for a Lynx activation in Gatwick we created a male barbering station with express moustache and beard trims, dry shaves and male haircuts. This weekend we are doing a few mothers day activities so we are focusing on express hairstyling, makeovers, manicures, brows and massages. For other events such as the Betty.Me campaign which were in a girls guide festival we conducted high speed glittering on hundreds of young girls as thats what suited the surroundings, enabled us to treat hundreds of girls and they loved it.

 

festival make up beauty experiencesTo give it that extra edge we can create special bespoke activities. For a campaign for Barbados at Westfield shopping centre who wanted to attract families, we designed bespoke firework face art carnival style for kids. For Oath we designed special nail art. For an American football tournament, we designed and printed bespoke tattoos. We LOVE to be creative – just give us some basic aims of the campaign and we will fire over a load of ideas bespoke to your requirements and incorporating the latest trends. Check our further case studies here for in-store activations, Shopping centres and brand campaigns
