The spring 2015 fashion shows had no shortage of standout hair and makeup moments—but with the first rush of anticipation comes a burning question: Can this look really work in the real world? As much as the season’s so-slick-its-wet hair appears polished under the runway lights, its hard to picture it with what you plan to wear to work on Monday morning. Luckily, theres an almost-instant barometer for the wearability of a runway trend: models, fresh out of the shows, who pair their just-seen hair and makeup with their real life off-duty clothes. After all, if they wore it out the backstage door and onto the street, it must mean they liked it. Just look at the cool grins on two models in mohawk buns exiting Marc by Marc Jacobs. A closer study offers tips for pulling off even complicated beauty gestures: Extreme braids are brought down-to-earth when paired with ripped jeans and a leather jacket, graphic eye makeup thats smoldering on the runway actually passes for easygoing with a hoodie or a sports jersey. If you still need convincing, look no further than Fei Fei Sun wearing her elegant Dolce & Gabbana chignon with a playful bright knit after the show—proof that a statement on the runway can seamlessly become a part of your personal style.
