Hair up inspiration for Regatta and Festival.

One of the world’s most prestigious sporting events is taking place in Henley in only a matter of weeks; The Henley Royal Regatta commences on the 28th June and is closely followed by the black-tie arts extravaganza Henley Festival. These two high profile riverside events create a hive of excitement within our beautiful Oxfordshire town.

Every year we see new trends, colours and silhouettes worn by the swarms of visitors to both events, with all ladies making the utmost effort to ensure they wear the best dress and have flawless hair and make-up. As trends change each year, we’ve seen more ladies choosing red carpet worthy hair up styles which radiate A-list glamour.

Why not mix style with practicality? Pinning your hair or parts of your hair up not only looks ultra-feminine, it can keep you cool on a balmy day and save you from worrying about your hair going flat or frizzy in the humidity – not the desired look for Stewards or Ronnie Scott’s!  We’ve picked our favourite hair-up styles which may inspire you for Regatta and Festival this year:


Side bun

Pair this classic look with an off-the-shoulder or asymmetric neckline to show off your collarbones. This hair up style looks best with lots of volume.

Braided bun

A more playful and bohemian style for the summer, choose either thick or thin braids for your desired look. Gather hair lower down for a classic French silhouette

Half up half down

Show off your eyes with hair swept off your face but keep the length flowing for a soft, romantic look. Twist or braid the top part of the hair and simply pin back.

Messy high bun

This on-trend, highly voluminous hair style pairs well with dramatic eye make-up and a strong lip colour

Double bun

A growing trend, the double bun is a super cute way of wearing your hair up. To create a more polished result, add smooth French plaits or tease out the hair to keep a relaxed, effortless look.
