Summer time in Saratoga Springs, NY means many things to many people but to most it means track season is upon us! That’s right, Saratoga Racetrack! Beautiful summer days spent in the sunshine watching the horses race ans watching people! We love it all. But we at Bella Nani Salon and Day Spa love the beauty and fashion of the race track!
Track opening day is heralded as a holiday for some. Traditionally, this is the day that most people wear the fanciest and sometimes funniest hat to the race track. Ranging from wondrous beauty to out of this world fun, there is something for everyone! Racetrack hats are part of the racetrack’s Victorian roots. The racetrack itself dating to 1863 is deeply rooted in Victorian history and the history of Saratoga Springs, NY. In fact, it is the history of health and horses are the foundation on which Saratoga Springs was built! History aside, our very own Marylou Whitney (aka the Queen of Saratoga) believes that the hats are as much a part of the racing tradition as the horses. She is always present to enjoy the fun and playful parade that is the opening day hat contest at the racetrack. This is surely an event not to be missed by anyone from first time visitor to seasoned attendee!
Conversely, an often necessary beauty service to schedule for a day at the racetrack is for your hair. Most women do not enjoy going out in public without taking steps to make their hair looks it’s very best and a day at the track is even more of a reason! There are many reasons one might schedule an appointment with Bella Nani Salon and Day Spa. Perhaps your hair is a touch damaged from all of your swimming pool trips and now you are going to attend one of the amazing events at the Saratoga Racetrack and you want to look your absolute best! Or maybe you just need a good deep conditioning and a color touch up before you spend the day in the Club House, enjoying the delicious treats made by the chef and watching people and ponies alike. No matter what your reason, from touchups, cuts and conditioning to spectacular updo’s for an evening at the track, Bella Nani is ready to be of service!
