Spring Racing Hairstyle Inspiration: Toni and Guy Georges Event



Last week I attended a media event at Toni and Guy Georges, where we heard all about the hair and makeup trends for the upcoming Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival. Salon owner and Style Director Jo Smith talked through the Spring/Summer trends in hair; and the team from Napoleon showcased the makeup tricks of the trade for the races.  The 10 media attendees were treated to a blow wave and a Napoleon makeover (instagram pics below) to demonstrate how the trends would work on each person.

Here are some images I took on the evening, and a breakdown from Jo Smith on how to achieve each look. Enjoy!
