With it being almost a year since the royal wedding, we thought we would honor the royal anniversary by taking a backwards glance at some of our fave Kate Middleton hairstyles; we’ll also be telling you how to get Kate Middleton’s hairstyle at home.
Kate Middleton's hair is all about thickness and volume; she may be lucky enough to have been blessed with uber thick hair, but it’s possible to achieve a Kate Middleton hairstyle, even if you have finer hair, by using your Dirty Looks hair extensions.
Clip in your hair extensions to create a super thick base before you start any styling; we would recommend using the full head set for the Kate Middleton look (even if you generally don’t use the full set), and if you’re feeling adventurous, you could add an additional Quad Weft too!
We usually see Kate Middleton’s hair worn down with movement and body through the mid-lengths and ends of the hair. The Duchess is renowned for this hairstyle and it’s easy to see why: the style is effortlessly glamorous and works beautifully with fine formal attire and evening gowns.
We recommend using a large barrelled tong or jumbo rollers to achieve this look; add root lift to the crown of your head, but focus the styling on the mid-lengths and ends of the hair to achieve the fabulous movement that Kate Middleton’s hair always has.
This HAS to be our fave Kate Middleton hairstyle; it works so well for the Duchess, and we’re so used to seeing her hair styled this way, but we love it when she does something a little different with her hair too!
Kate Middleton’s hair is sometimes styled half-up and half-down; this was the hairstyle choice for her wedding day too. The body and movement is generally kept to the ends of the hair when styled this way and sections of Kate’s hair are pulled to the back of her head to finish the style.
Again, you want to use your large barrelled tong to create those voluminous curls; don’t brush them through too much or you’ll lose bounce!
This Kate Middleton hairstyle looks super glamorous when worn with hats and hair accessories!
Kate can sometimes be spotted with her hair all up, but this is fairly rare … we don’t quite understand why as an updo looks gorgeous on Kate; it really shows off her features and works well for glamorous appearances.
We've seen Kate Middleton’s hair styled into a super cute ponytail on occasion too; this style still keeps the natural waves of her hair through the ends of the ponytail and a small section of hair is wrapped around the ponytail to disguise the elastic. A ponytail looks oh-so-girly on Kate … we love!!
So, Kate, we've adored following you and your glamorous hairstyles over the last year, but we want to see a few more updo’s in the coming months please!
And ladies, if you want to create your own Kate Middleton hairstyle, don’t forget to stop by Dirty Looks first to pick up a super thick full head set of clip in hair extensions … then get styling!!
