hellomagazine.comWe take a look at the Duchess of Cambridge's most elegant hairstyles, including sleek ponytails and pretty up-dos...
A true fashion icon, the Duchess of Cambridge consistently wows us with her glamorous designer wardrobe. But her style influence doesn't end there - the royal is also known for her amazing hair looks which are adored the world over.
Kate often sports her hair down in loose, cascading curls - and the iconic hairstyle is now referred to as the 'Chelsea blow dry'. Kate's hair has become a highly requested salon look, though for her official duties she'll often choose an beautifully polished up-do from side buns, low twisted chignons and sleek high ponytails. We love this chic half-up half-down style.

When Kate stepped out for a royal engagement in Canada wearing a beautiful Preen dress, she stopped traffic. She looked simply beautiful! The stylish royal's hair was neatly tied into a chignon, letting the dress do all the talking.
Kate is a fan of a pretty, low bun style - and for good reason, the look realy suits her. Attending a tea party in 2012, Kate chose to accessorise the style with some dainty pearl bobby pins for an elegant take on the classic up-do.
Attending an official engagement in India, at a garden party in New Delhi held in honour of Queen Elizabeth's 90th birthday back in 2016, Kate looked stunning with a half-up, half-down look twisted and pinned away from her face. Kate has gorgeous thick, luscious hair, so it was great to see her wearing it in this way.
Kate faced a challenge when she visited India in 2016 - it was going to be difficult to keep her hair looking sleek during official duties with the intense heat and humidity. But a low, twisted bun proved a perfect way to combat any frizz and made sure to keep her hair away from her face.
The Duchess dazzled during her North America tour in 2016 when she attended a gala reception sporting this elegant up-do. The twisted detail upped the wow factor, while height at the crown added serious sophistication. Beautiful drop earrings completed the look perfectly.
Kate chose an intricate look for a gala reception during her tour of Australia and New Zealand in 2014. Her glossy hair had been tonged into loose waves and pinned at the nape of her neck in a low bun for a glamorous finish.
The Duchess usually reserves her ponytail looks for more active appearances, but it was all eyes on the royal when she attended an exhibition in New Zealand sporting this elegant look. Extra height at the crown upped the glam factor of her sleek pony.
Kate is a huge fan of hats and fascinators, and is a dab hand at creating hairstyles to work around her pretty head pieces. The royal chose a low, twisted side bun to balance out the volume of her navy hat when she visited St Paul's Cathedral in 2015.
A fan of a chic up-do for formal events, the Duchess turned heads as she arrived for a gala reception in 2012 with her hair styled into a sleek, low bun with volume added at the crown for a touch of old Hollywood glamour. We love this sophisticated look on the royal.
