Anna Heinrich’s best hairstyles to copy this spring racing season

Anna Heinrich’s Best Race-Worthy Hair Looks

So many looks to try!

Beauty Crew Junior Beauty Writer / October 03 2019

Spring racing season begins next week, so it’s time to start planning out your beauty looks. 

One of our favourite things about racing season is getting to try new hairstyles. Like all those ones you spotted on the red carpet that are just too fancy for work or the weekend.

In case you haven’t already got a Pinterest board full of race-worthy hairstyles, we’ve found some for you. And they’re all courtesy of Australian media personality and local beauty muse, Anna Heinrich.

Here are some of Anna’s best hairstyles for spring racing season.

Sky-high topknot

A tried-and-true hairstyle for every girl on the go, if you’re short on time to get race day ready, try a topknot. Besides being a snappy hairstyle to throw together, it has the added bonus of lifting and accentuating your facial features.

Brushed-out curls

If you’re after a classic, retro vibe, Anna’s brushed-out curls and tucked-under ends nail the brief. Add a red lip and you’re good to go.

Voluminous curls and an ornate hair accessory

Hair accessories are a staple for any spring racing season and they’re an easy way to glam up an otherwise-simple beauty look and outfit. We love how Anna’s deep part draws attention to her golden hairpiece.

Sleek chignon

For a polished look, try a sleek and smooth chignon like Anna’s and pair it with a big pair of statement earrings for a bit of fun.

Half-up, half-down waves

This is an elegant hairstyle that never goes out of style. Give your ‘do a little extra volume by backcombing the section above your crown before securing it back.

Messy bun with curtain-bangs

You don’t actually need a curtain fringe to pull off this look. Simply secure your hair in a high, messy bun while leaving two front sections loose. Add a soft curl to make the pieces appear shorter, and to get them to softly frame your face. Gorg!

A glammed-up Alice headband

Glammed-up Alice-style headbands were HUGE last racing season and they’re not going out of fashion anytime soon. They’re the easiest way to give any hairstyle a spring racing upgrade.
