9 Runway-Approved Hairstyles to Wear to the Races
Spring racing season is essentially the party season before party season. When else can you put on a look-at-me hat or headpiece, and stand around drinking champagne at 10 a.m.? As fun as this brand of dress ups can be, it comes with the potential for beauty-related anxiety. (No, you’re not the only one who finds the concept of styling their own updo, intimidating.) Working out how to wear your hair to suit an accessory can be tricky, but there is a way to guarantee a win—looking to the spring shows for styles with a proven track record. Keep scrolling for nine runway-approved hairstyles you can wear to the races.
These soft and ethereal twists were wrapped with gold thread for a clip-like effect. Work dry shampoo through clean hair for grip, twist small sections and pin, then add Mimco's The Fling Haircharms ($60) for a similar vibe.
From the moment we clapped eyes on Chanel's double-ponytails (or pigtails) we've been on the hunt for an occasion to wear them to. The perfect partner to a boater-style hat, add a pair of barrettes to complete the look.
Chanel's show was fit to bursting with beauty inspiration and we love this hairstyle for naturally-curly strands. Apply a curl cream (like Moroccanoil's Intense Curl Creme, $48) for definition, add two metallic headbands and go.
Another simple style to copy at home, the models at Gucci wore their hair loose, centre-parted, and accessorised with a floral clip. Go for a design like Asos' Vintage Flower Hair Clip ($9) and position it just over your ear.
