Spring Racing Carnival Hairstyles

It’s that time of the year where I’m on the internet stalking beautiful ladies and their outfits – The Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival!! Will you be attending any of the races this year? I used to go with my bestie but the last couple of years we’ve stopped going. I blame getting old, my feet and back hurts if I stand too long. To join in on the fun, I have put together 3 different hairstyles with one simple fascinator that I would wear if I was attending the races!

Buns are super chic and looks gorgeous with any type of dresses. If you follow me on instagram, you’ll know that buns are one of my favourite hairstyles.

Note: This is good to wear on a special occasion and not for daily wear. The tighter the bun is, the more pressure it puts on your scalp. By the end of the night, my head was hurting but it was still too pretty to take out.

Excuse the lame pose, the hubs wasn’t around to help me take my photos so I had to take to myself. My fat arm is right in front of the lense.

Fish tail braid – I have always wanted to try out the fish tail braid but back then my hair wasn’t long enough. It looks quite time consuming but this only took me 5 minutes to put together because I used bigger strands of hair. The fish tail braid enables the side pony tail look more classy and sophisticated.

Soft romantic curls – This look can be achieved through a hair straightener or curling wand. A couple of months ago, I put together a tutorial to create soft curls (you can read it here). The feeling of having big voluminous hair is great. If you are wearing a strapless dress and feel like you are exposing too much skin, I recommend leaving your hair down (that’s what I do, I’m Mrs. Conservative).

I hope you enjoyed this post! I had a lot of fun putting it together!

P.S – If you are curious about my fascinator, I purchased it from Forever New last year for $5! Bargain!!

I was offered a complimentary styling at Conrad Mace (messy bun). All other hairstyles were styled by myself.

    I love all these styles, particularly the bun although I don’t feel as it would suit me because my ears stick out :( I’m still a sucker for high buns. Love the other two as well and would try these ones out on my own hair.

    The bun is my favourite! :)

    I like to choose my hairstyle based on what I’m wearing, the weather and how comfortable I am! Sometimes it’s nice to hide behind a curtain of hair. ;)

      I’m always hiding in my hair lol My skin is sensitive and I always get rashes so the hair is like my emergency cover.

    Have fun at the races! All the looks are gorge and you’d be quite the head turner I am sure!
