How you too can get 'the Kate'

28 JUNE 2012

Tidy and controlled yet showing off her beautiful mane to perfection, it’s no wonder the half-up, half-down do is the Duchess of Cambridge’s go-to hairstyle.

It fits perfectly underneath the array of fabulous hats and fascinators that she dons for official events, as demonstrated at the Diamond Jubilee pageant with her fire-engine red headpiece.

And it strikes the perfect balance between demure and daring, allowing the Duchess to show off her girly side while remaining modest and elegant.



For those of you wanting to recreate a similar stunning style, celebrity snipper Richard Ward has given us a step-by-step guide.

"This style is a great way for those with thick, luscious locks to show off their healthy mane," he says.

"And it's a simple style to recreate."
