Ahhhh Kate….the real life fairytale of an ordinary girl that grew up to become a princess and one day a queen. Every girls dream come true! I believe it was a role she was destined for and fills with the utmost elegance and grace. In a world of blurred boundaries, it’s so refreshing to see a fashion and beauty icon that is truly 100% lady.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, was as usual a head-turner as she arrives at the “Our Greatest Team Rises” Olympic Concert held at Royal Albert Hall on Friday (May 11) in London, England. Kate Middleton, who usually wears her long hair down, surprised us by pulling all her hair up into an intricate updo hairstyle this time. It’s very cool and chic — just what you’d expect to see from the Duchess.
How to create:
- Pull back the top part of your hair and pin around ear-height.
- Braid the pieces on both sides of your head and cross over each other over the pins.
- Braid the rest of your hair about half-way down.
- Twist all your braids into a soft bun and secure with pins.

Kate’s signature long, luminous brunette locks never disappoint. The key to achieving hair like the Duchess is in the maintenance. Using a good quality Shampoo and Conditioner, weekly Hair Masks and and a daily Heat/UV Protectant can all contribute to revitalizing your hair. To achieve a style like Catherine, use a big barrelled curling iron like the Coriliss Magic Wand 26mm, holding for about 10 seconds and slowly releasing so curl holds it shape. The idea is for a polished curl here, so use a hairspray or wax to hold the curl once its cooled. Who says we can’t look like a princess
