With Melbourne Cup just around the corner, it is to prepare and plan your race-day outfits and hair styles –and fortunately L’Oréal Professionnel is here to help.

From following dress codes and respecting tradition to acknowledging current trends and attempting to look unique, styling yourself for the races can seem like an impossible task. Luckily L’Oréal Professionnel  has come to the rescue with these on-trend ‘dos and styling products to ensure you stand out at the races this season.

Tousled waves

To achieve this voluminous look, blow dry hair with L’Oréal Professionnel Dual Stylers by Techni.Art. With a curling tong take wide sections and curl away from the face, taking care to start the curl at ear level or below. To set the tousled style, scrunch through L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Wild Stylers Powder-in-Lotion for a light powder finish with medium hold.

Spring bunches

Prep the hair and blow dry straight with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Dual Stylers Liss & Pump-Up. Create a centre part and apply L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Super Dust to the top section of your hair, tease sections gently to create soft volume. Pull into two bunches and twist and secure into two buns with a few bobby pins. Finish the look with a spritz of L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Fix Anti-Frizz and you’re ready for a day of punting!

Swinging ponytail

To achieve this race-ready sophisticated look, straighten your hair and pull into a low ponytail. Smoothen with a few drops of L’Oréal Professionnel Mythic Oil Nourishing Oil. Taking a small section of hair, wrap it around the top of the ponytail and fasten with a bobby pin. To create the braid, take thin sections from underneath the ponytail and secure within the middle of the ponytail with a bobby pin. Repeat six times on each side. Set the style with L’Oréal Professionnel Infinium Pure Hairspray, the brand-new hypo-allergenic hairspray with just four ingredients.
