What hairstyle should I wear for the Spring Racing Season?
Ladies, Spring Races is upon us! And we dearly hope you have been reciting the “Two H’s” – horses and hair! We all want to be winners this Spring Carnival season, and have been organising our outfits for weeks, including finding that amazingly perfect headpiece or fascinator (a stressful saga in itself!). But have you been putting any serious thought into your hair inspiration? If not, you are not alone; many ladies let this detail slip until the very last minute, when they are faced with major hair indecision. What to go with? Sleek up styles, soft loose and bouncy, statement straight, beautiful braids, elegant or messy buns? … Pick the wrong one and you risk throwing off your entire ensemble!
Your hair is your ultimate accessory, girl, and deserves your attention! It can be utilised to complement, emphasise and complete your desired look, taking you to a whole new level of fabulosity! From chic chignons to modern messy bun, choosing a hairstyle can be overwhelming! So let’s give a hand by breaking down the five basic hairstyle trends we are predicting for this season’s festivities.
If you are feeling the Daisy Buchanan vibe and want that classic, vintage feel then finger waves are for you! This style is quite involved and can prove to be tricky when attempted solo. So calling upon your local Epic Hair Designs expert is highly recommended to get it right. And may we say, this style looks particularly amazing on any hair colour, from high shine blonde to glossy brunette. This style would be perfect for that bejewelled, old-school vibe headpiece you have been hiding in your cupboard all winter!
Sleek styles are making a huge comeback this year and will work amazingly well with that statement hat you’ve been dying to wear! Is your internal monologue raising alarms right now? Are you thinking, But I don’t want my hair to look limp, flat or wet!? Sleek hair does not necessarily equate to flat hair, ladies. Utilising added height and movement through the hairline ensures this chic style can and will suit all face shapes. Take a note out of Scarlett Johansson’s book and give it a go!
Elegant buns can never go wrong! Whether high, low, messy or neat, buns rock a versatility factor few other hairstyles can, and are simple and easy to re-create. Are you wearing a flat, hairline sitting headpiece? A low, elegant side bun will be most flattering for you! Pulling off a flower crown? Rake your hair back into a loose, messy bun, pulling a few tendrils to the front to complement the look!
Braids are on trend this season and are our everything. Take a note out of Blake Lively’s book, and rock a a messy, fun fishtail that is slicked back from the front. This style exudes femininity and fun and is perfect for those desiring a low maintenance yet fabulous look for the day! Freaking out because you haven’t had time to find that perfect piece to crown your lovely locks? This style is for you! It makes such a beautiful impact on its own, a headpiece is not necessary. If you still want a little something, the official flower for Emirates Stakes Day is the red rose. As this style is full of whimsy, incorporating the rose will be an amazing compromise and give you an individual twist!
If you are still unsure and crippled by hair indecision, soft and feminine is the way to go. Bouncy curls complement every kind of fascinator known to woman and will forever be a Spring Races staple. The va-va voom volume this style provides will always ensure you a winning place as a Spring Racing star! It also has the added bonus in its versatility to be partially pinned up to add that ever-so-chic “I woke up fabulous” style. This look will keep you looking youthful and fresh. We recommend packing a dry shampoo in your clutch for an afternoon freshen up! Our favourite is KMS Makeover Spray.
