Who wouldn’t want Kate Middleton’s hair! A fan of wearable styles that ooze class and glamour, none of them are impossible to recreate and all of them can be adapted to different hair lengths. It’s win, win!
Attending so many outdoor engagements, Kate’s learnt that sometimes it’s easier to keep it simple, parting her hair more towards the centre and just curling under the ends of her hair for a natural look.
A smooth and glossy look for Kate, the professional blow-dry shows off just what good condition her hair is in while tucking it behind her ears emphasises the volume through the ends.
Kate’s pillbox hat might hide the top of her head but this is a larger curl than she usually sports and it begins much closer to the root which gives her style an air of youthfulness. One approves!
A darker shade of brunette for Kate, this style looks like she’s taken her lead from Farrah Fawcett with a soft fanned out fringe and bouncy curls.
Why choose a normal bun when you can have a royal pleat. Twisting her long hair into an intricate chignon at the nape of her neck, you might need a doughnut or clip-in extension to recreate this look at home.
Usually keeping her curls to the ends, for a night out Kate lets them creep up so they start in line with her mouth and cascade onto her shoulders. Super glam.
From the front it might look like a simple half-up half-down do but from the side you can see that Kate’s backcombed her hair at the crown to give her style height and body. Now all she needs is a tiara to rest on there!
Is this how Kate’s hair would look like without the pros? Reminiscent of those pics we saw of her when she won over William at a university fashion show, Kate couldn’t escape the humidity on their trip to Malaysia, leaving her to reveal her naturally curly hair – and she still looks gorgeous.
So demure, Kate takes inspiration from the Chanel spring/summer ’13 shows and dots pretty pearl pins through her bun. Pearls, lace and tea – so quintessentially British.
Rather than just securing her hair in bands, Kate pins it so she gets more of a softer sweep that looks feminine and ladylike when paired with those loose curls.
