A Good Hair Day at The Races


Royal Ascot is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy exciting horse racing, fine dining, entertaining, lunching and, of course, people watching!

Running over five days from Tuesday June 14th to Saturday June 18th 2022, Royal Ascot attracts large crowds and is the perfect occasion for both ladies and gentlemen to dress to impress.  

If you're fortunate enough to have a ticket to Royal Ascot this year, book your hair appointment at COUPE Salon in Sunninghill, Ascot, where we can create a special hairstyle that will look sensational with your hat? 

Royal Ascot ImageWe can create beautiful hair that can be styled to fit in with the look of your outfit and your hat.  Book your appointment now and bring your hat or fascinator into our Sunninghill salon so we can create a wonderful hairstyle for Royal Ascot.

We can suggest the perfect hairstyle depending on your Royal Ascot outfit such as a classic upstyle, a gorgeous curly look, adding some plaits or we can create an intricate plaited style or chignon.  Whatever style you decide upon, we can make sure that your style lasts well into the evening by minimising the risk of 'hat hair' where your hair is flattened after being stuck under your hat!

Top Tips For The Perfect Royal Ascot Hairstyle

If you’re heading off to a formal event this Summer, such as a wedding, a garden party or Royal Ascot, you may decide to wear a fascinator or hat (of course, if you're in the Royal Enclosure at Royal Ascot, a hat is a must!)

Finding your perfect hat isn't always easy, and then you need to choose a hairstyle to compliment your hat. This is why the team at COUPE have come up with some top tips to help you look fabulous in your race day millinery :

TIP 1:  Be sure to try on lots of styles of hat or fascinator to find one which suits your face shape, personal style and the event.

TIP 2: Find a hat or fascinator that flatters your chosen outfit style and colour.

TIP 3: Ensure that your hat is in proportion to your body type. For example, if you are very petite or have a small face, you would do well to avoid large hats. Similarly, if you have larger proportions, a small hat may accentuate this and should be avoided. 

TIP 4: Steer clear of wide brimmed hats if you have a shorter hairstyle. However, if you have long hair this can balance out a large brimmed hat and add a sense of proportion to your look.

TIP 5: If you plan to remove your hat throughout the day, your hair may end up looking a little flat. Remember to pack a miniature hair spray into your handbag so that you can nip to the ladies, revive your hair with your fingers,  and add a spritz of spray at the roots for a touch of volume.

TIP 6: If you are choosing a curly hairstyle for the day, you should consider adding the curls or waves at the ends of your hair instead of from the roots as your curls could be flattened by wearing a hat.

TIP 7:  If you decide to wear your hair in an elegant upstyle such as a chignon or ponytail, ensure that it is placed where it does not interfere with the fit of your hat or fascinator. Book an upstyle appointment with a COUPE expert on the morning who can ensure that your lovely hairstyle won't be spoiled by your head-wear.

TIP 8:  Book in with a COUPE professional stylist to get your hair looking perfect for your big event. We will discuss with you the look you want and we can create styles that will compliment your outfit and last all day! Call us on 01344 873 200 to book.

Whatever hairstyle you choose, we hope you enjoy your day at Royal Ascot!
