You've found your perfect race day outfit – complete with a headpiece to match. The question is, how should you style your hair to suit your chosen hair accessory? Giddy up with these ideas.

The Graphic Fascinator

Statement headpieces are perfect for spring carnival – particularly on Melbourne Cup day. But if you're taking the bold fascinator plunge, you'll need an equally dramatic hairstyle to match, like a voluminous, textured up-do. Plenty of backcombing and a good hairspray like L'Oréal Professionnel Infinium Lacquer are necessary to ensure this high impact style stays put and goes the distance.

The Flower Crown

A florist-designed fresh flower crown guarantees you a one-of-a-kind spring carnival head piece. In order to make the blooms the star attraction, you need a simple hairstyle canvas. Loose and straightened hair is the perfect backdrop as it will allow the flower crown to shine. Just be sure to keep any flyaways at bay by using a serum like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Liss Control + Serum.

The Romantic Headband

Whimsical headband-style head pieces are perfect for a more feminine race day look. From a styling perspective they also offer the practical advantage of ensuring your hair stays put. Try brushing the hair back and waving the lengths of the hair - then simply push in a headband to hold the style in place. Too easy!

The Boater Hat

A half-up half-down hair style is ideal for wearing underneath a classic boater because the softened hairstyle complements the more casual vibe. Create a faux side sweeping fringe with a few sneaky bobby pins and then sweep the front sections back into a low sitting half pony tail before topping it off with the boater.
