Your guide to fabulous race day Hair.

Keep it simple. 

It's a long day. Choose a Hairstyle that is classic, and not too intricate. You want to enjoy your day, without having to worry about your Hair. 

Design your Hairstyle to match your fascinator. 

If your hat or fascinator is bold, keep your Hair simple and sleek. If your hat or fascinator is subtle, have your your hair down with beautiful curls.

Beware of Hat Hair. 

Even if you are wearing a Hat you still need to keep your Hair underneath, under control. If you think you will take your Hat off during the day, consider a simple bun or sleek pony.

Consider the weather conditions. 

Nobody has time to worry about fly aways. Check the forecast, to make sure you have it all covered. Make sure you have the products available to deal with problematic Hair.

Hands off the Hair! 

The more you touch, the more likely your Hair style will fall out quicker. Keep your Hairstyle simple and classic to avoid this.

Remember your tools. 

Keep some spare bobby pins and elastics in your bag. Find a good Hairspray you can keep in your clutch for quick touch ups.

Have fun! 

Melbourne Cup only comes once a year so have some fun. Create glamorous, statement Hair to stand out of the crowd.
