NYFW Beauty Tricks, Courtesy Of Our New Pinterest Correspondent!

PowerPinner
With Fashion Week, Valentine's Day, and the beginning of spring on the horizon, we're always looking forward to February. But, the real reason we're giddily waiting for the tents to open is because it marks the point at which our entire beauty regimen will be revived. New riffs on smoky-eyed favorites, nail concepts we never could have dreamt up ourselves, the color we'll be, um, dying to dye our own hair — NYFW provides a wonderland of looks, and ones we can actually attempt to copy, thanks to a few fairy godmothers guiding us along the way.
One of those helpful beauty obsessives? Stephanie Brinkerhoff, the Utah-based hairstylist, beauty blogger, and makeup artist, who has made a name for herself on Pinterest, where nearly five million people keep tabs on her inventive twists and effortlessly romantic coifs. The whiz kid behind Hair And Makeup By Steph is a bona fide beauty expert, which is why we're beyond excited to announce she'll be joining us at Fashion Week as our Pinterest correspondent! Whether we're in the NYFW trenches reporting on glitter-tipped manis or cobbling together a tutorial on how to remake runway hair our way, she'll be along for the entire behind-the-scenes ride. And, better yet, she'll be taking snaps of everything, from backstage babes to beauty on the street, and sharing it all on her must-follow page.
While Stephanie has made a name for herself with easy-to-follow tutorials and perfectly picked inspiration, she never expected the site to actually change her life. "When I originally joined Pinterest, I had no idea that it would be of any help at all to my business," she explains. "I was so wrong! Not only has it brought me tons of new clients locally, it has exposed my work to an international audience, opening up tons of new doors and opportunities for me."
With jaw-dropping braids, showstopping buns, and countless of other tricky styles already under her belt, Steph's always looking for new, fashion-forward looks to try her hand at. And, with monotony never threatening to bring her down — "If I can't be creative and push my limits, I start to go crazy!" — a peek behind the curtain at what the greats are creating should do wonders for her already phenomenal styling tips.
Get stoked to see one-on-one advice for how to look like you're fresh from Phillip Lim's runway, and in the meantime, check out her Packing for NYFW board to see what she might wear — or not! "I know exactly how I'm going to do my hair and makeup, but I haven't quite decided what I'm going to wear yet," she admitted. "The clothing part intimidates me!"
If her style is anything like her beauty skills, though, this Pinterest star's got nothin' to worry about.
