October 14, 2021

Hair guru, Spring Fashion Stakes judge and all-round nice guy. This week we caught up with Peter Thomsen to get all the tips and tricks for ensuring our hair is raceday ready!


1. What is the favourite thing about your career?

I love the diversity of my career, the creativity and the connections I can make with others.


2. What is your favourite thing about a day at the races?

My favourite thing about the races is the energy, especially all the fun people have with their fashion, the Champagne and of course the adrenaline you get when you pick the winning horse!


3. What are your tips for a lasting raceday hair style?

My tips for hair styling on a raceday is to keep it simple and clean. My go-to style recommendations are a tidy low bun or a high pony. Both styles are classic, understated and allow fashion to be the highlight.


4. is there a product you can’t live with out?

I cannot live without my Dyson Corrale™ straightener. As with all Dyson technologies, it’s engineered for consistent high performance. Plus it’s cordless, so I can take it anywhere to create incredible styles on all hair types, from beautiful waves to elegant smooth glass hair. The Dyson Corrale™ straightener allows your hair to be smooth and shiny with less hair damage, quicker – it’s a winner for me. It’s also the perfect tool to touch up your High Pony throughout the day – just pop it in your bag!


5. what are your best tips for getting your hair through lockdown?

Best tips for getting your hair through lockdown is giving it a rest. Use this time to really look after the condition of your hair make sure you’re using good quality cleanser treatments. Don’t over shampoo, allow the hair to breathe and don’t use product to allow your natural oils to come through. Make sure you drying your hair with a tool that prioritises hair health – the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer is my go-to for a fast, flyaway-free blow dry, without extreme heat damage.


6. if you were a racehorse, what would you be called?

Never sleep – that’s works for me


7. who is your pick for the tab Everest?

I like the sound of Classique legend
