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
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
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
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.
