It goes without saying that your hairstyle is an extension of your personality, and with Spring Racing Carnival looming in our sights, it’s time to start planning your perfect hairstyle. Whilst there are never any rules when it comes to individual style, some guidance can go a long way.
So you have the perfect race day outfit, complete with a headpiece to match, but the question remains – how should you style your hair to suit the accessory? This spring you can ensure everyone will be looking your way when you take heed of these 5 amazing hair styles.
If you love being completely unique and enjoy the look of naturalism, a florist-designed fresh flower crown guarantees you a one-of-a-kind headpiece. But to make sure the blooms are in partnership with your hair, it’s necessary to integrate it with a simple hairstyle.
An up do will give your look a romantic feel, such as milkmaid braids with a twist, and roping the plaits on top of your head. Or for a more sophisticated look, try a retro rolled up do, pinning the rolls towards the front of your head and then tucking the hair in small sections into the back of the crown.
Generally, fascinators tend to look best when they are worn to the side or the back of the head. The best hairstyles to compliment your stylish fascinator include the donut bun (which is easy and sleek), textured buns for volume, ponytails and just simply wearing it out.
Short hair, bobs and long hair can all look great when in amazing condition and styled to be sleek and shiny.
With or without a hair accessory, this is a great way to add interest to your hairstyle this spring carnival season. A simple braid, even two, from the crown of your head sweeping down one side and finished with a messy bun is eye-catching and elegant. The texture of the braid, or braids, compliment headpieces, and it will mean you’ve provided a balance between the fascinator at the front of the head, and a beautiful hairstyle at the back.
A favourite amongst many during Spring Racing season is the elegant French roll, or chignon, as it never dates and is quite functional with or without a headpiece. Tease the hair slightly beforehand for added depth, and if you’re going for a more natural look, add small flowers to the roll or even a bedazzling hair clip to add a touch of bling.
If you’re still unsure and crippled by hair indecision, soft and feminine is the way to go. Bouncy curls complement every kind of headpiece and will always be a Spring Racing Carnival staple. The volume this style provides will always ensure you a winning place as a star on the field, and has the added bonus in its versatility to be partially pinned up.
Bouncy curls work with almost everything, from flower crowns to fascinators, clips to headbands.
