A royal insider went into detail about the duchess’ hairdressing skills in an article published on The Sun on Wednesday, May 27.

The Duchess of Cambridge normally gets her cut and color done by royal hairstylist Richard Ward. But during quarantine, Middleton’s only had a “little trim,” done by royal nanny Maria Teresa Turrion Borrallo.

For hair color, as mentioned, the 38-year-old mom of three has been touching up her locks on her own. “Kate does use a home color on it from Richard,” the source told the British outlet.

“She would normally be given products from his salon between her appointments with him,” the source continued. “But for this lockdown ‘the package was rather larger than usual’.”

Besides doing her own hair, Kate’s also a master of trimming her children’s locks! “Carole [Middleton] taught both Kate and sister Pippa how to cook and cut children’s hair,” said the source. “To them, it is no big deal.”

For many celebs, cutting hair at home is, a new reality. Many of them have taken to social media to document their DIY cuts to share the success stories as well as less-than-perfect results.

We’ve yet to actually see Kate’s work on Prince Charlotte, Prince George and Prince Louis, but we’re certain it’s expert-level good.

“Kate would certainly trim George and Charlotte’s hair as she is very competent and they are used to home haircuts.” Borrallo also stands by to assist Kate because “one of her skills is cutting children’s hair.”
