    Spring's shows have been filled with '90s references, but Matthew Williamson rewound time a bit more for his beauty inspiration. There, '70s glamour reigned supreme, with polished hair and makeup complementing the designer's signature luxe-bohemian style. "Matthew's girl is a really '70s, jet-set supermodel type," said lead hairstylist Mark Hampton. "The look is minimal, but very beautiful."

    Models wore their hair in clean side parts, with one side tucked neatly behind the ear. Flyaways were kept to a minimum by prepping hair with Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe's Smoothing Lotion before blow-drying with a round brush. Wrapping the ends of hair around a curling iron created a little kick to the smooth hairstyle; Hampton finished the style with a light misting of Toni&Guy Hair Meet Wardrobe's Flexible Hold hairspray.

    As for the show's no-makeup look? Key makeup artist Lisa Eldridge counted Kim Basinger and a young Cybill Shepherd among her references. Working with Benefit products, she created a clean, barely there face: strong brows, a hint of shine on the lips, and flawless skin. Bronzed cheeks involved layering Benefit's Hoola bronzer over Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows in My Two Cents and No Pressure. In a season of moody grunge girls hitting the runway, Williamson's '70s goddesses were a change of pace — and a sight to behold.

22 Things You MUST Do This Month In San Francisco

The best thing about October in San Francisco has nothing to do with Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Or the weirdly warm weather. Or even Halloween, for that matter. (Although, to be clear, there's nothing we love more than planning the perfect costume.) Rather, it's all of the exciting cultural events that jam-pack this month in read
