Royal Ascot is less than a month away (June 16th-20th), and if you’re lucky enough to be attending, then you’ve probably started thinking about what you’re going to wear – either that or you’ve had it planned for months. It’s practically the only excuse we’ve got to wear a fancy hat, so take this opportunity to pick a standout piece. Hats come in all shapes and sizes, but whatever your choice, you can be assured that there’s a hairdo to go with it. Here are our suggestions for hat-hair (the good kind)…
With this look, let the fascinator take centre stage by keeping your hair pared back. Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Keep everything in place with a plaited creation; from milkmaid braids to french plaits or loose pigtails, take inspiration from the catwalk. After all, don’t let your fascinator be the only talking point.
2- Wide Brim
A wide-brim hat sure is attention grabbing, so make sure you don’t overdo with a look-at-me hairdo. You’ve got two options here: go for a sleek blow-dry and leave your locks loose, or sweep your style back into a low pony or chignon. You don’t want to be fiddling with bobby pins or grips beneath your hat, so opt for something a bit simpler.
Now, if you opt for something floral to adorn your head, just remember you’re not at a festival. We love a floral crown as much as the next person, but this field requires a much smarter dress code. Nevertheless, keep an element of boho chic with wavy locks that frame your face.
