The Spring Racing Carnival showcased fresh, ready-to-wear collections with a glimpse into the most coveted look for the race track.

Mist HAIR.RESORT.SPRAY on the hair. Create a centre part, and using a large curling iron, create waves in large sections of the hair using a positive-negative wave pattern.
