The Melbourne Cup may be the race that stops the nation, but it heralds only the beginning of the spring and summer racing season. With The Ascot Racing Carnival hosting nine race days from October to January, you can take your pick from the bevy of races on offer and extend the fashions on the field all summer long. Here are our top tips on getting race ready.

How to prepare for spring racing season - Kinks Hair & Beauty

Organise your spray tan

Never underestimate the transformational power of a tan, and spray tans are the perfect way to achieve a natural bronze without the UV damage. At Kinks Hair & Beauty, we use Naked Tan, the original two hour rapid tan, to ensure a perfect streak-free glow. We recommend scheduling your spray tan for two days prior to your event to ensure that you are the perfect shade of bronze on the big day.

Treat yourself to professional hair and make-up

As much as we all love channelling our inner beauty vlogger, there is nothing quite as luxurious as having your hair and makeup professionally done; this rings particularly true in the case of the spring races when you never know what the elements will throw at you. Thankfully, professional hair and makeup will ensure that your look lasts all day long. Whether you’re after a natural glowy look or something more dramatic, our experienced makeup artists at Kinks Hair & Beauty will have you feeling fab all day long.

Decide on a hairstyle that complements your headwear

The races are the perfect time to explore your headwear options, so why not go all out? After you have chosen your statement fascinator or headband for this year, we recommend choosing your hairstyle based upon this. If you have chosen a feminine, Grecian-inspired headpiece, go for romantic waves or a braided updo. However, if you have opted for more modern and geometric headwear, why not a more sleek, dramatic pony?

Recover the right way with a facial

Post-races recovery is just as important as preparation. After all, a day of sun and champagne is bound to take its toll on your skin and leave you feeling slightly worse for wear. To ensure that the return to the office come Monday is smooth sailing, why not preemptively book a facial to pamper and rejuvenate your skin? At Kinks Hair & Beauty, we offer DermaQuest enzyme treatments and resurfacing peels to ensure that no race will get in the way of you and your dewy glow.
