If you’re feeling hair envy after these stunning looks, head to an OO Salon ASAP, we’ll get you race ready!


bun hairstyle with hairband


Such a cool take on a classic hairstyle and a classic accessory. This bold style was achieved by working with a standard hairband and giving it new life. Acting as a boss girl tiara, we encased a big bohemian top knot with a cool velvet hairband. Don’t underestimate the accessories you already have at home, the possibilities are endless when you step out of the starting gate and into your creativity! This winter, incorporate pops of colour into your hair accessories. Bold colours and metallics look great with dark hair, pastels look stunning on brunettes, bright reds and cobalt compliment blondes, and jewel tones look amazing on red hair. 


hairstyle for visor

Sun protection but make it ✨ opulence! ✨

This look is totally on the right track. All you need is a beautiful visor like this one from En Pointe Collective and a BIG high pony. A sexy loose pony like this can be achieved with a luxury salon blowout and some glamour curls. A perfect high ponytail is a good bet for a race day, it can be paired with any outfit and is so flattering as it adds volume and elongates your neck. 


straight hair with clips


I can’t talk right now, I’m doing hot girl race hair.

Sleek, mod, and bold. Smoothing treatments and serums work wonders when you want to take a simple hairstyle to boss babe level. This is a style that is perfect to rock in the winter when the humidity levels are at an all-time low and you can flaunt your long locks (or extensions). We used a series of gold barrettes to embellish this healthy smooth hair as well as enhance that shine. This is a hairstyle that can both elevate a race day outfit, and make it a statement. 



up-do with bows

High fashion hair doesn’t always mean expensive hairbands, sometimes all it takes is some Spotlight ribbon and an innovational hairstylist. This stunning look was created by taking a glamour-curled head and intertwining a red ribbon throughout until it holds into a super chic messy updo. For a look like this, the messier it is, the more intricate it becomes. We’re obsessed with this hairstyle because of its versatility. Go high-end as we did by pairing a bright red ribbon with a tailored blazer outfit, or go soft and pretty by pairing a light coloured ribbon with a flowy dress. 


vintage hair

She is beauty she is grace she is going to the race. Have you seen Bridgerton? Vintage-inspired looks are so elegant for the winter racing season. Rich colours and shiny soft twists in the hair create that vintage vibe but still keep it modern. How amazing would this look with a glass of bubbly and winning bet?
