Beauty aficionado’s the world over won’t be disappointed when it comes to the hair and makeup at Milan Fashion Week this Spring 2018.

Here, 9 breathtaking hair and makeup moments from Milan Fashion Week that you’ll want to incorporate into your beauty routine now.
#1: The Middle Part Takes Center Stage at Bottega Veneta
At Bottega Veneta, the middle part made its mark. Kaia Gerber, Emily Ratajkowski, Sara Sampaio, and Binx Walton took to the runway with sleek lengths, tucked neatly behind the ears and parted down the center.
#2: The Everyday Ponytail Gets an Easy Update at Alberta Ferretti
Model’s hair at Alberta Ferretti was secured into a low ponytail before being wrapped with an elastic that criss crossed all the way to the end of the tail. Curly wisps of hair framed the face, adding a romantic touch to the look.
#3: Missoni’s Cool Girls Wear Pastel Liner
Inspired by photographs taken by Craig McDean, makeup artist Lynsey Alexander gave each model graphic, flicks across their lids in pastel blue, mint green, and soft lilac shades.
#4: Colorful Faux Bangs Match the Cat-Eyes at Fendi
At Fendi, mega models Kendall Jenner, Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, and Kaia Gerber were nearly unrecognizable with the addition of sea-colored, architectural bangs dreamed up by Sam Mcknight. The sideswept fringe, which came in varying shades of blue, was paired with a bold, matching feline flick.
#5: Gucci Goes All-Out Glitter
There was a wide spectrum of bold beauty looks at Gucci’s Spring 2018 show courtesy of industry legends Yadim and Paul Hanlon. Think: Smudgy red lipstick, glitter-encrusted eyelashes and eyeshadow, barely-there brows, hip-grazing waves, and crystal embellished hair barrettes.
#6: At Tod’s, Windswept Hair is a Beauty Win
At Tod’s, hair was pulled back and secured into a low ponytail at the nape of the neck. Each of the models— including Kendall Jenner, Yasmin Wijnaldum, and Vittoria Ceretti— sported an effortless, halo of face-framing wisps for a pretty, windswept feel.
#7: Prada Goes In With a Bang
For Spring 2018, Miuccia Prada sent her models out sporting matching, pageboy bangs that conjured tough, but still feminine.
#8: Jil Sander Reinvents the Braid
Backstage, hairstylist Eugene Souleiman dreamed up a lineup of head-turning braid styles. There was corn-rows, fishtails, and an intricate five-strand plait that started at the nape of the neck and fell beautifully down the back.
#9: Max Mara Proves That Inclusivity is the Best Beauty Statement
Hijab-wearing model Halima Aden made her runway debut at Yeezy Season four, before going on to walk for Max Mara’s Fall 2017 show last season. Now, the Italian designer has included the Somali beauty in his Spring 2018 show. Sporting a slick of red lipstick, her black hijab, and versatile daywear, the model proved that inclusivity is no fleeting trend.
