Talk about surreal: This year the global economy was in free fall during the spring 2009 collections, but rather than being cowered by grim news, the world’s leading hairstylists and makeup artists unleashed their imaginations in a riot of color, shape and texture. The result is a season strong in trends, from the resurgence of superstraight hair to the new glam-Goth eye ringed in layers of black and charcoal. If, as in past eras, beauty remains recession proof and women actively seek affordable indulgences, there should be more than enough to inspire them in the months to come. Here, spring’s key beauty trends from the runways of New York, London, Milan and Paris.
