If you’re anything like me this cold weather has got you dreaming about sunshine and spring… and that means SPRING RACING – the best time of the year! Especially for those of us crazy about Fashions on the Field. The Melbourne Cup Carnival is the pinnacle of racing and along with that comes the most glamorous fashion you will ever see.

Cue panic stations! Have you got any idea what you’ll be wearing yet? Where to stay, if you are travelling from interstate, or where to get your hair and makeup done?

I’m a bit overwhelmed by everything that I need to get organised before I head to Melbourne from Adelaide in November, but one thing I don’t have to think about is my hair and makeup. It’s already booked in with the fabulous team from Spring Racing Glam Squad (S.R.G.S).

This group of trained professionals are not new to the makeup and hair game so I know that I am in good hands, which is why I had no hesitation in booking in as soon as I saw their new account pop up in my Instagram feed.  I know you are going to love this idea as much as I do, simply because it’s everything you need in the most convenient location.

Who are they? Professional Makeup Artist Alarna Bell from Kolorz and Klawz is heading up the finest collective of award winning experts to get you looking your best for Spring Racing. Alarna has over 20 years experience in the industry and is the National Director of Makeup for Miss Universe Australia and I am SO excited that she will be doing my makeup on Oaks Day! I’m also booked in with Bre for my hair and after stalking her Instagram I can’t wait for her to work her magic on my hair. Scroll to the end of the blog if you’d like to check out all the team members.



What do they do? A designated professional will do your hair and/or makeup from 6am til lunch time. Makeup includes full face application with contouring and eyelashes. Hair includes headwear placement too… sometimes this can be the tricky part when you do you own hair. These ladies have got it covered for each major race day during the Melbourne Cup Carnival!



Where are they? (this is possibly the BEST part) They will be located in the apartments directly across from the Flemington Racecourse… it could not be any easier to get glammed up and arrive looking super fresh at the track!

How much does it cost? $120 for each service with a non refundable $10 deposit required when booking.

Where can I book? The best way is to call them on (03) 512 62300 to discuss your needs. They are so helpful if you’re unsure of anything. Be quick because their books are filling up.

Also, for those of you who love to plan… here’s the link for a checklist available from Winning Post Boutique that you can download and print for free. I made it for myself along with an outfit planner because it helps to put everything down on paper. I hope you find them handy too.
