Kate Middleton: Hair Icon and New Mother to the Royal Baby

The anticipation and arrival of the Royal Baby has swept the globe by storm. In honour of the newest Prince (George Alexander Louis, to be exact!), we would like to take a closer look at his iconic mother, Kate Middleton. Rather, we’d like to take a sneak peek into her hair care regime.

It is no secret that Kate Middleton has won the hearts of the masses worldwide with her sparkling, easy smile. But let’s be honest – while her popularity is known among all – what is the secret to her coveted tresses? No matter the in-climate English weather, or the excruciating pain of childbirth, Kate’s hair remains smooth and glossy, tumbling over her shoulders in deep brunette waves.

A mere 24 hours after giving birth, Kate greets the crowds, her hair a vision of absolute perfection.

While we all wish that we were privileged enough to have a personal stylist on hand daily, today I would like to show you how you, too, can achieve Kate’s signature ‘do with the appropriate products. ELLE UK revealed some of the secrets to Kate’s hair and beauty routine here. Online celebrity beauty blog, Handbag.com, also affirmed here that the Duchess of Cambridge does, indeed, use Kerastase products to attain her gorgeous blow-out.

Let’s take a closer look at Kerastase, specifically Kerastase’s Bain Satin 2 shampoo (Kate’s favourite).

We, at Grotto Hair Studio, are privileged to be a Kerastase salon. Kerastase is a luxury haircare and styling line, designed to specifically target the needs of men and women with guaranteed results. Bain Satin 2 shampoo is a daily moisturizing shampoo which promotes softness, nutrition and shine into dry, sensitized hair. Kate, like many of us, colours her hair – a process that should be followed up with proper hair nutrition to prevent drying out of the hair fibre. As well, weather in England is known to be harsh and windy. Kerastase’s Bain Satin 2 will aid in preventing wind damage.

Kerastase also offers in-salon treatments to direct guaranteed results according to the client’s specific needs. These treatments can add volume, repair, add density, protect colour, restore protein, and much more. At Grotto Hair Studio, we are excited to also have the Fusio Dose Home Lab kits that are available for clients to purchase and use at home in between appointments.

Let’s take a closer look at some of Kate’s most iconic hairstyles:

Typically we see Kate with her hair down, however, she looks just as stunning with it swept into an elegant updo.

While it is apparent that the majority of us do not have our stylist on speed dial, armed and ready with a host of products and tools for our every hair inspired whim, it’s encouraging to realize that Kate’s hairstyle is something that we can achieve ourselves! True, we may not be able to relax daily with a cup of coffee and magazine while someone else primps and preens our locks, but we will be able to step out in public with hair that is equally as radiant and healthy.
