The Ascot Beauty Survival Guide

It’s racing season! And there’s no time to horse around with your wardrobe.

Royal Ascot is the key social event in the British sporting calendar. The event brings together sport, entertainment, fashion and royalty! It’s the creme de la creme of celebrity get-togethers with everyone from Kate Moss to the Queen in attendance (no pressure)!

We don’t need us to tell you that you’ll need to look your best on the day. But be warned, there’s a fashion code of conduct.

Ascot Rules:

  • Dresses and skirts should fall just above the knee or longer
  • Dresses and tops should have straps of one inch or thicker
  • Matching full-length trouser suits are welcome
  • Jumpsuits are welcome (but they have to be full length)
  • Hats should be worn, but you can wear a headpiece which has a solid base of 10cm
  • Strapless, off-the-shoulder and spaghetti straps are not allowed
  • Midriffs and cleavage must be covered

Phew! They’re just the fashion rules. What about beauty? Well, it’s recommended that ladies wear minimal makeup, nude eye-shadows and natural lipstick – think Jessica Alba or Blake Lively.

If you’re lucky enough to attend Royal Ascot this year, make sure your look is on point, by visiting one of our favourite salons!
