Races hairstyle tutorials
1. Beach glam textured hair with a flower crown headpiece
Oversized accessories are the way to go this season. Perfectly worn with beachy glam textured hair, achieved by setting your curls in alternating directions and top off your perfectly brushed waves with texturising and volumising powder. Pair this look with a bold red statement fascinator from Morgan and Taylor.
2. Twisted braid hairstyle with a hair scarf accessory
Make the most out of your day-old hair with this super chic and easy hair tutorial! This style is a play on the normal braided hair but enhanced with a hair scarf accessory to add dimension to your race day look. For a subtle look, pick a scarf that blends with your hair. But we recommend going bold with your race day look! We love this emerald green hair long-tail scarf by Morgan and Taylor.
3. Braided ponytail finished with a crown headpiece
We love this look for Spring racing. This pony looks a lot harder than it is. Simply 3 small plaits turned into one big plait. This hairstyle is quick, easy, and super effective, especially for ladies who have thin hair to add that extra amount of volume! Pair this hair look with a gold floral crown or check out our Eve Til Dawn headwear collection; a brand that offers more delicate and elegant headpieces.
4. Polished s-blend ponytail hairstyle with a bow accessory
The hair equivalent to the ‘no-makeup’ look, we’re loving this effortless races hairstyle by Natalie Anne! Start by slicking your hair back into a mid ponytail. Struggle with flat hair? Add volumising powder to create instant volume, texture, and root lift with a matte finish. Bonus: It’s also good at absorbing oils! Natalie Anne’s tip to remove those flyaways is strong hair spray and a toothbrush to polish. Keep your S-blend soft using a straightener to create the wavy pony and keep it in place with hairspray for extra volume. Complete with a large bow accessory and sunnies.
