Style Like A Queen! 6 Easy Hairstyle Of Kate Middleton That Every Girls Need To Learn

Style Like A Queen! 6 Easy Hairstyle Of Kate Middleton That Every Girls Need To Learn

Kate Middleton isn’t just a royal princess who shot into the limelight with her marriage. She is a modern style icon, a celebrity who was and to an extent is, still a common every day girl at heart. She is simple in her ways, fashionable yet not so gaudy as a royal or as bland as a Jane. She is the kind of woman every modern girl wants to grow up to be. Be dresses, the way she presents herself or even the welfare programs she’s associated with – everything is newsworthy.

So, here is something that is just as gorgeous and definitely what a every young woman wants to emulate – the hairstyle of Kate Middleton. So let us look at these six super stylish yet distinctly different hairstyles that her royal highness has sported along the way.

1. Chelsea Blow Dry

    This signature style manages to make a woman look feminine and young, and feels natural as well as put-together at the same time. The style has Duchess Kate as its most famous patron, and the loose, bouncy curls with a glossy shine make a snazzy style statement. For those who want to sport a similar look, an easy way would be to use over-sized rollers to get those large wavy curls and lots of hairspray for the shine!

    2. The Demi-Chignon

      The royal wedding was one of the most watched events worldwide and the demi-chignon received a royal reception, thanks to it being chosen as Kate’s wedding hairdo. It is a whimsical version of the half up-half down hairstyle. This particular style is simple and elegant at the same time and is thus suited for all occasions – from weddings to a chic party look. Here is how Kate wore it on two different occasions.

      3. Classic Half-Up, Half-Down – Sexy And Polished

      Classic-Half-Up-Half-Down-–-Sexy-And-Polished

        The Duchess often sports this style as it confers several advantages, as it straddles the space between casual and formal styles with finesse. Wearing your hair down will give you that sexy look but won’t confer the polished vibe of an upturned hairdo.

        This is where the half-up, half-down styles come to your rescue; they keep the hair away from your face bringing out its beauty. At the same time they retain those dreamy curls that lend sexiness.

        4. Braids And Knots

        Braids-And-Knots

          Sections of hair weaved into braids will contrast beautifully against free-flowing locks of a half-up style. Bringing the side strands into a knot or a cute bow at the back through which hair cascades down, or artful placement of overlapping strands of hair to form a gorgeous pattern at the back of the head are all variants of the half-up style.

          Featured below is a simple form of half-up style worn by Kate, the side strands have been brought to the back and pinned into place with cute hairpins and the ends curled to give a wavy look.

          5. The Ponytail Look

            This ‘funky’ ponytail with strands of hair wrapped artistically around the plastic hair band is a chic look that would be apt to look your casual best for a sporting event.

            6. The ‘Princess’ Look

            The-‘Princess’-Look

              A round-up of Kate’s amazing hairstyles would be incomplete without featuring the coiled chignons and messy buns that have helped Kate look her royal best. When Kate attended the premiere of the movie Spectre, she styled her hair into an intricate chignon which complemented her bangs very well, giving a fun yet elegant look. Sections of hair have been rounded into small curls and placed in artsy design to form a bun and secured with pins to create this stunning hairdo.

              This is the most popular of them all, and has been a popular style chosen by many young women and brides as quoted here, where these collaged pictures were sourced from.

              8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

              8 Simple Mindfulness Exercises to Bring Peace and Happiness to Your Life

              In life, we all need to be conscientious of what we are doing. You don’t need to live a life of stress if you don’t want to. You can achieve peace and happiness in life by carefully building mindfulness exercises into your life’s routine.

              Exercising mindfulness isn’t rocket science and as importantly, you can do it. It will, however, take a few tries to get into the groove of things but once you get it, it is like riding a bike, you will never lose it.

              Trust me. It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. In this article, I will share with you 8 mindfulness exercises that will help you to boost your energy, vitality and live a more peaceful and happier life.

              Why Is It Hard to Live A Peaceful And Happy Life?

              Our Habitat Has Become Too Technological

              The world has accepted the idea that technology is often the cure for all evil. We have accepted, as a society, that everything technological will make us live a better life without fully investigating the many side effects that modernity brings.

              There are a number of technological side effects that have a tremendous impact on your life that the media rarely tells you about.[1] Some of them include self-harm, economic inequality, having less sex, and even suicide. The global community is becoming less happy because of technology.

              How can anybody live a peaceful and happy life when they are depressed? Technology advancements, ladies and gents, is a major reason for why we are living a poor life because it has infiltrated our lives too much.

              According to my research, Americans spend an average of 8 hours a day looking at the computer screen — The average screen time spent on smartphones alone is about 20 hours per week. That’s a lot! No wonder why living a happy and peaceful life is so difficult these days.

              Too Many People Don’t Want to Unplug

              Americans check their phones an average of 80 times during vacation.[2] Some admit to checking their smartphones 300 times every single day. In countries like Brazil, India and China, the situation is no different.

              The reality is that people are constantly plugged into technological devices and this behavior is literally making people all over the globe fight an inner war with themselves, which consequently makes them very sad. As we know, war is the enemy of peace which won’t make anybody happy.

              Listen carefully:

              We have a global anxiety epidemic because people don’t want to unplug from their smartphones and most people aren’t doing anything to fix it. It is a sad state of affairs but very real. This obsession with technology is turning us into perishable robots who live terrible lives.

              The era of anxiety is here to stay. There is little doubt about it. We can, however, fight back with the best remedy of all — We call it mindfulness!

              Thank God there is an antidote to this whole technological madness. Without further ado, let’s go straight to the mindful exercises.

              8 Mindfulness Exercises to Start Practicing

              There are tons of mindfulness exercises available for you to engage with out there.[3] In the paragraphs below, I will include the best ones I’ve personally tried or have seen my close friends and family members try.

              Are you ready for it? Let’s go!

              1. Pray Daily

              You should pray on a daily basis. Why is that you may ask — Well, because science has told us to do so.

              When people pray, they feel peaceful, almost eliminating anxiety. Worries become secondary, and often gives people energy and hope to cope with the difficulties of life.

              Prayer can make you more confident and focused. Prayer also helps you with self-control, helps to control pain, and can protect you against illnesses and disorders like cancer and high blood pressure. At least, this is what researchers from Harvard Medical School have said.[4]

              Pray. You won’t regret it.[5]

              2. Pay Attention to Your Inner Thoughts

              A lot of people allow themselves to be influenced by their negative thoughts. Be different and resist believing in them. It is a bad habit that can lead to unhappiness.

              By the way, if you do feel this way, chances are high that somebody other than you put these thoughts into your head.

              Here is my secret to combat this cancer — look at things objectively. I bet that if you look at things as they are, you will realize that most if not all of your negative thoughts are only inside of your head.

              Advertising

              If you pay close attention, you will quickly realize that these voices aren’t worth your time. Believe me — Ignoring them and looking at things with objectivity is often the best course of action.

              3. Smile Often

              Smiling will slow down your heart. It will also relax your body because when you smile, your body releases endorphins which in itself has a number of positive benefits for you as a person.

              Smile often! You may want to smile early in the morning, during the day, and late in the evening. It is amazing what happens to you when you decide to smile instead of being grumpy.

              Surrender your problems to a nice smile. You will notice two things. First, most people just don’t which makes them live a miserable life. Second, if you decide to smile often, you will eventually smile unconsciously which is the ideal.

              The moment that you smile unconsciously, you then know that you are truly happy.

              4. Organize Your Working Desk

              A messy desk will make you less productive and can agitate and overstimulate you. You don’t want that.

              When you clear your desk, you engage in deep inner-thinking and your systematic decision making ends up becoming therapeutic.

              Most people realize that they are most creative when their creative space is clean and organized. The former often makes people more aware of what they are doing which lends to less stress and more productivity.

              Organizing your desk will also make you more energetic and focused because order often decreases chaos which is a condition that often slows down daily progress.

              5. Celebrate Your Friend’s Victories

              I love this mindful exercise. One of the best ways to live a happy and peaceful life is to celebrate the victories of others. When you do that, you automatically make your friends in a better mood which makes you in a better mood, as well.

              Happiness is contagious! We might as well celebrate others as much as we can. If you find out that your peer has won an award, celebrate with him! If your friend is the recipient of a local charity award, celebrate with her!

              What is also awesome is that when you celebrate with others, they often celebrate with you in return. This, ladies and gentleman, will make you feel fantastic. You can’t go wrong with this one, period.

              6. Listen to Your Spouse/Partner

              God put someone in your life for a reason. You might as well listen to him or her.

              I listen to my wife everyday. In fact, I often ask the following question to her, “Amanda, what are your thoughts about…” or “What am I missing about…” It is shocking what I hear back from her. Without her having much context and perspective, by the art of observation in my own nonverbal behavior and the behavior of others, she accurately gives me incredible insights which helps me out with living my life to the fullest.

              I’m a firm believer that spouses are supposed to engage in interpersonal communication every day. I most definitely do and will continue doing it. You should do the same.

              7. Give Yourself a Break from Technology

              You can’t be in total equilibrium if your computerized devices control your life. You must get away from technology on a daily basis.[6]

              How do you do that? This is my formula:

              First, take this smartphone control test. It is only ten questions but this test will place you somewhere in the human robot cycle continuum.

              If your score is between 25-30, take a break from the computer (or smartphone, pad, laptop/desktop) every twenty minutes and stop being on a computerized device after 8:00pm.

              If you score between 30-35, still take a break every 20 minutes but stop being on these devices at 5:00pm.

              Advertising

              If you score more than 35, you need to take action immediately.

              Limit computer use as much as possible throughout the day. Give yourself as many breaks from the computer as possible. Are you ready for the challenge?

              8. Go Exercise

              Go exercise at least three times a week. I don’t care if you need to workout early in the morning, late in the evening, on the weekends or during work days. Working out is absolutely imperative for you to live happy and peaceful life.

              The stresses of the modern world are too much for you to neglect this important mindfulness exercise. When you go to the gym, you burn calories, focus on activities one step at a time, your mind relaxes, anxiety decreases, you sweat and often think about topics unrelated to your work place among many other benefits.

              You must exercise at least three hours each week for optimum results. Why? Just take a look at all the benefits of regular exercising:

              The Bottom Line

              It’s in your best interest to learn and put these mindfulness exercises into practice. Now that our habitat has become too technological and many people just don’t want to unplug, engaging in daily prayer, celebrate your friends’ victories, and listening to your spouse are among the best ways to be mindful about what you are doing and how you are living.

              It is possible to live a happy and peaceful life. It only depends on you.

              Go exercise! Take a break from technology and invest in you! Life is too short for distractions.
