Tip # 2  PREPARE YOUR HAIR

The first key to having great looking hair is healthy hair. So plan ahead and do a few deep conditioning treatments and a tidy up on those ends to have beautiful glossy hair. Also worth remembering, your colour is at its best after a few shampoos, so try book in for your colour at least a week before any special event. We recommend Alfaparf Illuminating Mask for beautiful shiny hair

Tip # 3  LET YOUR HAIRDRESSER DO THE WORK

Fascinators and hats aren’t the easiest of thing to attach without messing up your beautiful hair do. So if you’re heading to the salon to have your hair done, be sure to bring your hat/fascinator with you and let your stylist fit it for you.

Tip # 4  CLEAN HAIR ISN’T ALWAYS BEST

If your hair is thick and luscious and you’re going for a lovely soft blowdry, then clean is definitely best. But if you want a curl and your hair generally drops out quickly or you’re going for an up do then we always recommend you shampoo your hair the night before. This will leave the hair less slippery and will hold anything we put in the hair a lot better. If in doubt always give a shampoo the night before and we can decide on the day if we need to give it another wash.

Tip # 5 WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?

If your hat or fascinator is over the top or bold, keep your hair sleek in a high or low pony for a sexy modern look. With a prettier or more subtle head piece go for a more soft look of hair out and curls. Take this into consideration when selecting your hat or fascinator how you generally prefer to wear your hair. Not all hair styles suit all fascinators.

Tip # 6 LAST THE DISTANCE

Race days can be long days so be sure to pop a purse sized hair spray in your clutch for touch ups. We recommend Alfaparf Illuminating Hairspray, available in convenient 100 ml purse size.
