How to look your best at the July

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS - STAFF RE­PORTER

HORSE rac­ing in Dur­ban doesn’t get much big­ger than the Vo­da­com Dur­ban July, and with the big day ap­proach­ing, the per­fect out­fit and im­por­tant de­ci­sions about make-up and hair need to be fi­nalised.

The July is a classy and el­e­gant af­fair, so whether you are wear­ing a hat or not, you can wear your hair up or down – but re­mem­ber to wear it to suit your over­all look and per­son­al­ity.

The theme for race day, “The Colour of Magic”, pro­vides the per­fect in­spi­ra­tion for an el­e­gant up style.

Be­spoke’s hair styling team, which styled all the mod­els’ hair for the Vo­da­com Dur­ban July Fash­ion Show­case pre­sented by the Dur­ban Fash­ion Fair, pro­vided a few style op­tions (see be­low) to con­sider for race day.

“You can adapt the looks to suit your own style and per­son­al­ity. Don’t be afraid to play around and try al­ter­nate styles with your out­fit on,” Be­spoke Hair stylist Claire Swart said.

“We’d love more peo­ple to pay at­ten­tion to their hair at this year’s Vo­da­com Dur­ban July. Just re­mem­ber to not over-style it. Keep it beau­ti­ful,” stylist Lynelle Maistry added.

Plaited bun with a twist: A side bun looks su­per chic and tidy es­pe­cially when you wear a hat. This style can be in­tri­cate or sim­ple, with plaits added or su­per curly.

The Dur­ban July is renowned for be­ing quite windy and cold later in the day and this style will stop your hair from blow­ing. A def­i­nite show stop­per. Iconic movie star: Think Au­drey Hep­burn meets Lady Gaga – this style tri­umphs over all buns. This is the ul­ti­mate movie star of the 60s look.

Low curly bun princess loop: Up dos are not only prac­ti­cal but also re­mark­ably stylish.

Per­fect from wed­dings to for­mal events.
