Now that NYFW is over and the shows in London have started, we've rounded up our top ten predictions for next season's beauty and hair trends. We can't wait to try some of these looks!

1. Emerald Green

Named Pantone's color of the year, expect to see this color everywhere. If you're having trouble picking out complementary shades and textures from your makeup collection, try a handy palette such as Maybelline's Eye Studio Color Explosion Eye Shadow in Forest Fury, $10.99, available at Ulta.

2. Matte Lipstick

In bright and bold colors, this velvety look is beautiful for spring. If matte lips leave you parched, try Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color in Heart, $24, available at Nordstrom.

3. Neutral Nails

Nail art and stickers in all kinds of designs are still widely popular, but patterned nail art built upon a neutral foundation is starting to take hold. For those who prefer a more minimal nail, this look is easy to adopt for spring when running errands leaves little time to switch nail colors. Try Essies' Nail Color in Sand Tropez, $7.79, available at Target.

4. Bold Brows

If you're always on the go, try a combo pencil that comes with a bonus brush to save on space such as MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, $19.50, available at MAC.

5. Pink

Popping up in blush, lipstick, and eyeshadow, pink is making a comeback. For ladies who want to ease into the trend first, try Fresh Sugar Petal Tinted Lip Treatment, $22.50, available at Sephora.

6. No Mascara

Breaking up completely with mascara is a daunting challenge. For this trend, try switching to a lengthening and separating mascara, rather than a volumizung one like BareMinerals Remix Trend Collection Flawless Definition Mascara, $18.00, available at Ulta. Clear mascaras such as Maybelline's Great Lash Clear Mascara are another great alternative, $5.49, available at Ulta.

7. Face Oils

The ultimate in moisturization, face oils rose to the top last season as winter's approach brought on woes of dry, chapped skin. This season, expect these oils to stay popular as some have anti-acne benefits great for skin that gets irritated in the spring. Try Tarte's Pure Maracuja Oil, $46.00, available from Sephora.

8. 1940s Waves

Veronica Lake-esque waves are back for this season and are totally doable at home. With a hair brush and a large curling iron such as the CHI Air 1 1/2" Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron, $59.99, available at Target, you'll be a Hollywood star in no time.

9. Black & White

A popular runway color combination for clothes during NYFW, black and white also appeared as a beauty trend. If you're sporting grey or blond locks, play up on the bold brows trend for a contrasting look that will bring out your best features.

10. Sleek Straight Hair

Kate Moss' iconic look is back on the runways this spring for those who prefer a more minimal look than waves or updos. To keep your strands slick and tame, try a defrizzing cream such as Straight Blow Dry, $29.00, available from Bumble and bumble.
