Hair envy! From bouncy blowouts to pretty much perfect ponytails, Duchess Kate is known for her luscious locks. Because let’s be honest, the 39-year-old royal has some seriously shiny strands.
From the second she stepped into the spotlight, her tresses were all anyone could talk about. Because whether she was rocking loose waves, bangs or her go-to half-up half-down do, the Duchess of Cambridge has a good hair day, everyday.
The Hold Still author’s signature look was looks waves and a side part, but following her wedding, where she wore her hair in a demure half-up half-down style, she switched things up a bit with face-framing layers.
She went on to experiment with blonde highlights and even brought back her bangs in 2015. Somewhere along the way, she switched over to center part, staying true to the trends.
While her hair is down majority of the time, the duchess has done her fair share of updos. And let Us just say: they never disappoint.
Take her 2012 tour of Malaysia for example. The royal had quite the intricate chignon, complete with pearls pinned into the loops. She also donned a gorgeous ballerina bun for a reception at the Government House in Australia in 2014.
More recently, the Duchess of Cambridge has been rocking longer locks, in part because getting a haircut during the COVID-19 pandemic wasn’t all too easy.
But here’s the good news: the royal is pretty handy with some sheers and at-home hair color!
Last year, a source told The Sun that the duchess not only took a stab at dyeing her tresses during lockdown, but she also frequently gives her kids, Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis, a trim.
“Kate does use a home color on it from Richard,” the source said at the time, referencing royal hairstylist Richard Ward. “She would normally be given products from his salon between her appointments with him. But for this lockdown the package was rather larger than usual.”
And it seems like she did a standup job, because Kate’s hair as of late has looked more beautiful and bouncier than ever. Earlier this month, she stepped out with a blowout that was debatably her most voluminous yet.
Regardless of the length or hue, Duchess Kate always looks polished to perfection — not a split end in sight. To look back at her best hair moment through the years, keep scrolling!
