Races Hairspiration

With the start of racing season on the horizon, we’re on the search for glamorous, hat-ready hairstyles….

If you’re anything like us, the dress and accessories are sorted, and now all you need is a truly spectacular hairstyle that will perfectly complement your entire races ensemble!

There are many things to consider when picking your perfect style: will you have a hat or a fascinator? Will your dress feature a low or detailed back? And most importantly, what will the weather be like…?

Failsafe Pony (no pun intended)

The ponytail can be dressed up or dressed down, and is the perfect style for race day. As we all know, the longer and thicker the better when it comes to ponytails!

If your natural tresses aren’t quite living up to the dream, then help is at hand…

Great Lengths hair extensions can be blended perfectly with your natural locks, resulting in an increase in volume and length. The best thing about them is that, as the bonds are so neat and discreet they are undetectable, even when worn up. Wear your ponytail as sleek or textured as you like with a fascinator perched atop and you shall go to the ball Cinderella!

Flowing Manes

The au-natural style is big news this season and can look gorgeous when paired with a beautiful race-day dress (as long as it’s not too breezy!) Make sure your locks look extra glossy by using our specially formulated care products up to three weeks before the big day. Our Hair Mask Extra Rich in particular is perfect for rebuilding the structure of any broken or damaged hair, ensuring that it radiates health.

For those wanting to enhance the volume of their natural locks, we recommend our GL Apps tape-in hair extensions. Perfect for special occasions, they last for up to four weeks and can be perfectly blended with your natural hair to deliver a little extra OOPMH!

Glamorous Bun-dle of hay

The bun style is a favourite for women the world over and serves many purposes: it’s the perfect style for those days when those extra few minutes in bed mean more than clean hair, it’s the perfect out-of-your-face gym style and it can also look pretty stylish too.

Possibly our favourite race day hairstyle this year is the plaited side bun – it is wonderfully simple but timelessly elegant and modern at the same time.
