SS23 beauty trends: from Josephine Baker-inspired kiss curls to extreme graphic liner – these are the best hair and makeup moments from Paris Haute Couture Week
We're about to say au revoir to Paris Couture Week until next season, but not before we spill the beans on all the beauty looks that left us utterly transfixed.
Make no mistake, there was an abundance of striking hair and makeup moments, and so we've collated the cream of the crop, the key trend takeaways that will help elevate your beauty game next season.
Hello! Fashion shares the five beauty trends from Paris Haute Couture Week that you will 100% want to try:
Giambattista Valli couture SS23
Giambattista Valli was all about full blown party-perfect updos – think piles of chunky braids and bow-inspired shapes. But we fell even harder for Isamaya Ffrench's frosty take on K-beauty's glass skin trend. Smashed it.
Josephine Baker-inspired kiss curls
Dior couture SS23
Paying tribute to legendary performer Josephine Baker was on the agenda for Dior, and naturally, that extended to her instantly recognisable kiss curls. Quietened glitters captured the current era’s pervasive hum of despondency (favoured over all-out opulence), but Josephine's iconic hair look underpinned the show with trailblazer spirit.

Extreme graphic liner
Valentino couture SS23
As far as makeup moments go, the vibe at Valentino was giving Black Swan meets Elizabeth Taylor's inimitable Cleopatra. Sweeping lashings of liner gave the TikTok-adored Siren Eyes trend a sharp update. Major props to Pat McGrath – consider us well and truly hypnotised.
Shiny red lips
Chanel couture SS23
High-shine candy red pouts created by Lisa Butler were all the rage at Chanel, alongside nonchalant cool-girl waves and flawless skin. We reckon the bright lip is long overdue a resurgence – somebody CC Hailey Bieber.

Alexis Mabille couture SS23
At Alexis Mabille the fascinator was given a gilded update and we implore you to take note. When floodgates open for endless race days and weddings, and know that we'll be swerving tradition and instead opting for a high drama corsage-inspired hair accessory.
