The Duchess of Cambridge is famous for her glorious, thick, shiny locks. The royal is known for her perfect blowouts and wearing her long luxurious locks down for formal and sporting appearances. She repeatedly wows us with her always picture-perfect looks. Her styling choices consistently make headlines—so much so that if she wears a dress, it often sells out in mere seconds.
Editor and founder of LibertyLondonGirl.com, Sasha Wilkins, said in a documentary called “The Royals”: “I think Kate’s hair has become her badge, it’s the thing she’s most recognizable for – this perfect, glossy incredibly bouncy hair.” Ms. Wilkins went on to add: “There are rumors that she might have hair extensions but I’ve never found anyone to confirm that.
Kate’s personal hairstylist Richard Ward, put all those rumors to bed when he revealed the secret behind her glossy and bouncy locks. It turns out it’s a hairbrush called the Tangle Angel.
He told People magazine: “I always brush the hair through with my antibacterial and anti-static Tangle Angel.” He says the brush – which retails at £10.95 – builds the foundation for the perfect blow-dry and is great for “lifting the hair from the roots to really get to the cuticle”.
He said: “It’s very very important to use a real bristle brush. With this brush, the bristles lie flat and as the hair is pulled through it sits on the barrel at exactly the same time at exactly the same level, that forces the cuticles to close and that will give you the best opportunity to get the Chelsea blow dry.”
The hair guru is also a fan of rollers for an extra-long lasting blow dry and turning the hairdryer to a low setting is also essential for a frizz-free style that will last longer than the average wash and go.
He explained: “Hair should be pulled up as you put the rollers in, and it should be kept tight.” He describes Catherine’s look like a “hairstyle that is well finished” and admits it may take a couple of practices to get it right.
