Let us tell you about a little something called “hat valet”. Sounds a bit ridiculous, doesn’t it? But really, Virgin Australia is just answering our spring racing prayers in the form of premium fascinator handling.

The airline will have porters on standby for those travelling from Sydney to Melbourne for Derby Day and Melbourne Cup, offering eligible guests a personalised hat valet service which ensures safe handling of your fragile race headwear.

But that’s not all. Eligible guests will also be treated to a range of pre-flight pampering, like blow dries and hair styling, shoe-shining services, and ModelCo makeup kits, to make sure you arrive race-ready. You’ll have to be one of Virgin Australia’s Business Class guests, Velocity Platinum, Gold and Lounge members, though.

Dannii Minogue is a Virgin Australia Platinum Velocity Frequent Flyer, so naturally she supports this whole hat valet thing. She says in a news release, “Racing headwear is one of the most valuable pieces of any race day outfit, and the Hat Valet and unique styling services offered by Virgin Australia are a fantastic way to support fashion-savvy race goers as they make their way to Melbourne for the Spring Racing Carnival.”

All the hat valet, shoe-shining, hair-drying fun will be available at Virgin Australia’s flagship Sydney Lounge from October 31. If you’re keen on some pre-racing pampering, check out the available times below.
