Her Royal Highness, Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, really knows how to work a crowd with her fabulous creative hair styles. Check out her romantic interpretations with tips on how to get the look from Edward Tricomi, co-owner of the prestigious Warren-Tricomi Salons.
“This look is elegant, charming and surprisingly easy to achieve,” said Edward.
First, begin by parting your hair where it would naturally fall. This look is started with a very basic French braid at the back of the neck. Be sure to braid very loosely. This will keep the look modern and effortless.
Once your braid reaches the top of your back begin to twist it into a bun. The bun should be more oval in shape as opposed to round and should sit right at the base of your neck. Secure with hair pins.
Kate’s Half Up, Half Down Style
“Lady Kate kills it with this, taking a look that is sophisticated yet surprisingly simple to create. The off-center pin curls are unexpected, innovative and original,” Edward said.
Start by setting your hair with a curling iron in large sections until your entire head is curled. This will give it a soft bounce.
Divide your hair into two sections from ear to ear across the back of your head.
Brush the top section straight back (this look is achieved with no parting). Take hair from your temple and pull it away from your face, twirling it into a pin curl and securing it with pins at the crown of your head and repeat with the remaining side.
