Hat Valet

811x260-hat-valet

Virgin Australia’s Hat Valet services will transport racegoers and their most important accessory, the head piece, from Sydney to Melbourne in spectacular style during the upcoming Spring Racing Carnival.

Located in the airline’s Sydney Lounge, the Hat Valet service ensures premium handling of head pieces from the moment they arrive at Premium Entry in Sydney until they are hand delivered in Melbourne.

To celebrate one of the most popular sporting events in Australia, Virgin Australia is also offering guests a number of pre-flight pampering options in the Sydney Lounge, including professional blow-dries and styling, make-up appointments and ModelCo take home kits.

Racegoers will be offered sparkling wine on arrival and a range of delicious canapés created by the Virgin Australia chef. Male guests travelling to Melbourne can also utilise a shoe shining service from social enterprise, Buffed. 

These services are available to Business Class guests and Velocity Platinum and Gold members travelling on selected flights from Sydney to Melbourne between Friday 28 October and Saturday 5 November 2016.

Guests using the Hat Valet, hair and makeup services can also take a photo in front of the flower wall in the Sydney Lounge and use the tag #virginaustraliahatvalet on social media.
