Horse racing this July doesn’t get much bigger than the Vodacom Durban July. With the big day fast approaching, this means sourcing the perfect outfit, makeup and hair decisions that you are going to make.
Remember the July is and will always be a classy and elegant affair, so whether you are wearing a hat in the day or not, you can wear your hair up or down but remember to wear it to suit your overall look and personality.
The theme “The colour of Magic” promises to mesmerize at this year’s event at Greyville Racecourse which will be celebrating its 121st year. The theme is the perfect fit for the posh elegance on the day.
The team from Bespoke provides some examples of general styles of how to look your best and showcase your crowning glory this race day.
Some examples below:
1) Plaited Bun with a Twist – A side bun looks super chic and tidy especially when you have a hat. This style can be intricate or simple, plaits added or super curly. The Durban July is also renowned for getting quite windy and cold later in the day and this style will stop your hair from blowing. A definite wowza!

2) Iconic Movie Star – think Audrey Hepburn meets Lady Gaga – this style triumphs over all buns. It gives an iconic new look and make you look like a star. This is the ultimate movie star of the 60s look.

3) Low curly bun Princess Loop – Up dos are not only incredibly practical; by having your hair off your face. They are also remarkably stylish at the very same time – which is precisely why they’re becoming more and more popular! From weddings to formal events, it’s just perfect.

“With all the above looks, you can adapt it to suit your own style and personality. Don’t be afraid to play around with different looks with the same hat and try alternate styles with your outfit on,” states Claire Swart from Bespoke Hair
“We’d love for 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.” Add Lynelle Maistry and Sally Clauson from Bespoke Hair.
