Going brunette (or darker, at least) is synonymous with the Fall season. But before you venture over to the dark side, there are a few things to keep in mind. "If your hair is damaged, going dark won't make it healthier. It will just make it darker," explains celebrity colorist George Papanikolas, who has worked with brunette beauties such as Miranda Kerr, Mila Kunis, and Sofia Vergara. So how can you keep your hair healthy and achieve the right shade of brunette for your skin tone? Papanikolas schools us during our visit to the Andy Lecompte Salon in West Hollywood, where he transformed one client's hair right before our eyes.

If there's one trend emerging on the Milan runways, it's an easy, breezy beauty look, like the one seen at Emilio Pucci's Spring 2014 show. Models wore their hair deeply parted to the side, with a decent dose of tousled texture added in for a devil-may-care effect. Makeup and nails were kept neutral. It was all very wearable — just like the variety of silhouettes, patterns, and color motifs featured in the collection.
Minimalist beauty may definitely be a trend for Milan Fashion Week Spring 2014, and Roberto Cavalli is going right along with it. His models wore barely there makeup as they walked down the runway clad in glamorous fashions. Flawless skin, brushed-up brows, and a swipe or two of mascara was all it took to make their natural beauty shine. Hair was kept down and center parted and was slicked down from the part to the ears.
For Bottega Veneta's Spring 2014 show, beauty was more about subtlety than over-the-top looks. Makeup was kept surprisingly minimal, focusing on soft pinks on both the cheeks and lips. Eyes had a glossy finish to them and were framed by bold brows. As for the hair, the focus was more on what wasn't happening. Simple, straight hair with a slight bend gave off a just-rolled-out-of-bed vibe. The overall look, including the clothing collection, was super sexy, yet attainable, for Spring.

ICB by Prabal Gurung's Spring 2014 show will forever be engrained in our minds as having one of the best nail art looks on the runways.

It's so simple to re-create, so we gave it a go — in less than five minutes.
