We take a look at the brilliant beauty and hair moments that took place during the spring/summer 2016 runway shows from New York all the way to Paris. This season hair and makeup looks embraced individuality and celebrated unique styles. A few of my favorites included bold blue eye makeup, fringe effects, and decorative hair accessories.
Below are 14 major beauty trends that were all over the spring/summer 2016 runways.
