Kate Middleton Cut Her Hair, Here’s Why It’s Worth Copying


There are two types of girls in the world, the ones who frequently change hair color and effortlessly transition from waist-length beach waves to a cropped pixie cut, and those who consider a trim to be a major commitment. Given the amount of fire Kate Middleton comes under for something as simple as an above-knee skirt, we’re not surprised to learn that she is of the latter variety, as evidence by her most recent 3-inch trim. What we will say though, is that this kind of choice (versus a Kim Kardashian-level bleach moment), is the reason why her locks are so impossibly vibrant. Unsure of your next hairstyle? We suggest following in the Duchess’ footsteps and opting for a healthy trim. By the time festival season rolls around you’ll have envy-inducing strands just begging for flower crown. Recreate her style with these tips.

Gentle Shampoo

Don't strip hair of natural oils, instead, opt for a gentle formula.

Hydrating Conditioner

High-shine strands don't happen by themselves. Use a hydrating formula for added lustre.

Volumizing Mousse

Create youthful volume by applying a mousse to damp hair.

Large Round Brush

Use a large round brush to blow dry your locks for bouncy results.
