If you’re heading to The Royal Ascot this weekend, here are our top fashion, hair and beauty suggestions to get you ready for five days of pageantry, and Pimms!

Frills and flutes


This years Royal Enclosure style guide will tell you that strapless, off-the-shoulder, halter and spaghetti straps are a no-go. Luckily, the fashion favourite this racing season is the statement sleeve; we’re talking frills, flutes and lots of fun. Straps aside, the dress code has entered modern territory this year, with trouser suits and jumpsuits both now welcome attire in the Royal Enclosure – this navy Reiss all-in-one is perfect for a day out in the sun!

Head Pieces


Expect the unexpected – gone are the traditional emblems of Royal Ascot headgear, and in our neon-pink tie-dye effect feathers, and voluminous headpieces in kaleidoscopic, hand-painted abstract prints. Designer Noel Stewart translates high fashion into occasion wear from his small studio in cosmopolitan Dalston, stating “Royal Ascot is one of the few occasions where you have an opportunity to do something daring, and to express your personality. I like making people feel like a more brilliant, exciting, chicer version of themselves.”

Bring the Beach


This year, it’s all about ‘natural’ waves (with a little help of course!). Artfully tousled, just-off-the-beach hair can be yours with a little help from Oribe’s Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray, containing a mix of oils and plant extracts that provides a lustrous shine and a sultry, wavy texture perfect for wearing underneath a hat or fascinator at the races.

Naked Nudes


When it comes to makeup on days out during the summer, dewy soft skin and natural hues are a must. Charlotte Tilbury’s Instant Look In A Palette is a great go-to compact for a fresh-faced look on-the-go. It features seven glow-giving shades, including the iconic Swish and Pop blushers and signature Eye Smoke.

Colour Splash


If you want to add a colour pop, a vibrant orange is always a fun shade to try, and it works well with brighter summer hues. If MAC’s creamy ‘Morange’ lipstick isn’t a summer staple of yours already, then it will be after today!

Festival Ready

Festival season is well and truly underway – dust off the wellies and the bum bags ladies and gents! With Glastonbury and V-Fest just around the corner, it’s time to embrace this season’s biggest hair and beauty trends. Think bold; think irreverent, and keep scrolling for our favourite festi-approved trends to try out this summer.

All that glitters

All that glitters

It’s hard not to over do the sparkles at a festival, but for a modern, edgier look, keep it simple and highlight your cheeks by strobing your cheek bones with a thin layer of Vaseline and patting on a glitter of your choice. For something more dramatic, go for glitter lips that were seen on the Fendi and DKNY catwalks during fashion week in February. You could be covered in glitter for days after but who doesn’t need a little twinkle on a Monday morning?

Shine bright


Yes that’s right, we’re talking bold, bright and beautiful hues. When else would neon be acceptable? For heavily saturated brights, try Urban Decay’s newly released Electric Pressed Pigment Palette. This is the only time we’ll tell you to close the naked palette, and unleash your inner colour junkie!

Twist & turn


Braids are always a go to for festivals, and not just because you’ve ran out of dry shampoo! With the likes of Zoe Kravitz and Cara Delevigne rocking braided styles this year, we advise you get yourself to any on-site braid bars and have them give you an all-in up-do that will last the whole weekend. For a cheaper alternative, take a look at youtube tutorials and have a whirl at playing hairdresser.

Go gold

Hair rings

To keep your festive chic look going strong with 4-day old hair, spruce it up with some golden hair threads or hair rings, which can be wrapped and clipped in to your hair. Loved by the fashion set of late, this bargain accessory can be picked up for just pennies at your local haberdashery, or from stores like ASOS.

Floral delight


It’s all about the intricate floral face tattoos (temporary, of course) around the forehead and temple. We’re talking boho, hippie chic, step away from the metallic arrows and triangles, and trial these Topshop wildflower tattoos.

Fight manicure boredom with this season’s latest varnish releases, the must-have manicure shades inspired by the spring/summer fashion runways. If you’re a girl that mixes and matches her mani according to your mood and the weather (yep that’s us) its time for a flattering new shade. Hello, spring colours.


Laid back meets polished, grey looks chic all year-round go with a cool variation during the warmer months for a spring-y feel. Opt for a blue toned pastel grey as seen at Monse and Brock.


Gucci splashed this never boring cobalt shade across its runways and we love it. Go big or go home! We’re wearing this shade on the weekend.


Neutrals are back on trend and white nails are feminine and surprisingly sophisticated. Think you can’t pull off this all white look? Our manicurists tip: it’s all about choosing the correct off-white shade to suit your skin tone.


Splashes of neon: this trend is making us dream of summer already. Whether you go for a Dior inspired bright citrus shade on short, square nails or a neon french over a neutral base, this bold hue will look uh-mazing, especially with a bronzed summer glow.


Don’t store that black away just yet, Vera Wang proves that with a simple negative space design, black is back on the menu for spring/summer 2017. Bare or cut out moons alongside minimalist black accents steal the show!


We’ve got all the latest spring shades in our professional kits. Let our Sparistas ensure your hands are perfectly polished. Book a Spa Mani & Pedi, starting from £68. Download the USPAAH app from the App Store or Google Play.
