A day at the races
Royal Ascot, this year on the 18th to 22nd June, always grabs the fashion headlines.It’s well known for its elegance and strict dress code - which, of course, includes hats. Later in the season, there’s Glorious Goodwood too. So how to avoid the dreaded hat hair? We recommend first choosing a hat with flair and then matching your hairstyle to the hat.
A wide-brimmed hat works well with hair left super straight and worn behind the ears. To get super straight locks start by applying a primer like Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm on damp hair to smooth the hair cuticles and banish frizz. Then, on still damp hair, warm some Smoothed, Sealed & Sensational No Oil Oil for Thick Hair between your palms and apply from root to tip. Follow with The Perfect Blow Dry Makeover Spray and blow dry the hair straight. When hair is dry, run over each section with a hair straightener. And voila, super straight hair any Royal would be proud of.
A pillbox hat works well with a low slung bun. To get the look just pull the hair back into a ponytail secured at the nape of the neck with a hairband. Twist the pony, wrap into a loose bun and secure with pins. Finish with a mist of Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray and then secure your hat into place. Super simple and super stylish.
Festival with style
If camping in the mud is not on your radar this summer, perhaps choose a festival with a difference. The long-running opera festival at Glyndebourne is full of class and style. Set in the beautiful gardens of Glyndebourne with stunning views of the Sussex Grounds the style is formal and vintage dressing is popular. It’s a thrilling occasion to get dressed up and picnic with champagne. Or perhaps you crave the laid-back vibes of the Love Supreme Jazz Festival? Either way, a wonderfully wavy style with accessories to match the occasion will work wonders and give you festival hair with class. To create an effortless wavy look apply award-winning Beyond The Beach Texture Spray to damp hair and use a tong to create waves and movement. Headbands are definitely on trend for 2019, ever since Prada put them on their spring/summer catwalk models. They would create a perfectly elegant look for the Glyndebourne festival. Bobby pins decorated with pearls or crystals are a fabulous finishing touch for a stylish, but laid-back festival look. You’ll soon be mistaken for an A-lister.
Anyone for tennis?
Wimbledon is full of top tennis action, Pimms, strawberries, and the beautiful bouncy blow dry as seen on the Duchess of Cambridge and Andy Murray’s wife, Kim Sears. Hair goals right there. To get a big bouncy blow dry try using Up, Up and Away Root Lift Mousse. Our co-founder Adam Reed says, “Big, beautiful hair never goes out of fashion - Up, Up & Away Root Lift Mousse is my product of choice to provide more hold and guts directly at the roots with ease.” Apply it to towel-dried hair by lifting in sections and spraying in at the roots. Comb it through hair before blow drying. Adam says, “Once you have achieved the volume you want, it’s important to seal it in. Finish your blow dry with a cold blast from the hairdryer and spray hairspray where the air is blowing to seal the style. Use product to maintain the volume such as our Big, Bold & Beautiful Dry Instant Volumising Spray.”
Stylish sporting events
The Henley Royal Regatta and the Cowdray Polo are both highlights of the sporting summer calendar and the social season. A ribbon-tied ponytail is a simple, classic look - just perfect when you are on the move. Get a good base by using a hair primer before blow drying, use Reassuringly Firm Session Hold Hairspray by spraying into hands and using your hands to pull your ponytail into place and secure with a band. For extra interest, you can use a heated tong to create light waves in the ponytail. Mist with hairspray to finish. Choose a ribbon to match your outfit and tie it around the ponytail to create the perfect look for a summer day out. For instant mega-watt shine just mist Eau My Goodness Shine & Fragrance Spray to your finished look.
