For her last day in L.A. (July 10), the Duchess wore her hair half-up, only she went with a dressy bun instead of a standard ponytail, which gave the style a more sophisticated look.
While at a polo match in Santa Barbara, CA on July 9, she went for a voluminous version of her signature style. To get a similar look, “start blow-drying your hair after letting it air-dry 80% and use a real bristle brush,” her stylist Richard Ward tells
“If you’ve got a client like Kate who’s going to be photographed as much as she is, to have naturally beautiful hair is great,” says Ward.
Half-Up With Volume
For her last day in Canada (July 8), the Duchess wore a red coat-dress and pulled her hair into a sleek half-up style with height in the front and loose curls at the ends.
Even princesses wear ponytails! When Middleton arrived in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on July 3, she sported this simple, yet pretty style.
The secret behind the Duchess’ always-shiny strands: a holding serum. “We have one in the salon called Richard Ward’s Couture Hair Memoriser Holiding Serum,” says Ward. “It not only takes out the frizz and makes it silky smooth, but it actually holds the curl.”
