Ditch the fascinator for Ipswich Cup


“Sticking with the traditional fascinator may be a safe option but why not try something bold, and new.”

70’s Curls:

Curls like Zendaya rocks but it’s not a hairstyle for the faint hearted – it’s for the girl that’s not afraid of a few stares, is a little bit wild, unkempt and loves to break the rules. How to get the look?

1. Rinse strands with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.
2. Once hair is completely air-dry, wrap 1-inch sections of hair around a 1-inch iron.
3. Gently comb out coils with a boar bristle brush for added definition.
4. Pair with a sexy silk number that lets the hair do the talking.

In fact, anything retro:

Angular hair cuts and styles are so 2017; we love Margot Robbie’s retro take on the bob by adding a curl underneath rather than keeping things dead straight. Fly aways, messy fringes and centre parts are just simple ways you can incorporate this trend into your raceday look.


Models on the runway for the past year have all been adorning one thing – braids.

The fun thing with braids is that there’s no right or wrong way to rock them; messy, polished, fish tail braids, knot braids etc.

Not only this, but they’re almost a fascinator within themselves – braid a ‘faux headband’ for something extra special.

Accessorise with a headscarf:

The headscarf is perfect for those who can’t let go of the humble fascinator, but want something a little more modern and fashion forward. Weave it through your plait or braids, wrap it around your ponytail or even pin it in your hair – the opportunities are endless!
A headscarf is also a great way to introduce bold colours and patterns if your outfit is a little more simple.
