Kate Middleton has the best hair in the business and here’s how to get it!

There are currently a few things running through our mind… Where are Prince George and Princess Charlotte hiding? Where’s Kate Middleton’s gorgeous coat from and the most important, how can we achieve The Dutchess’s bouncy hair at home?

Kate, 33, has some of the most amazing hair. You can’t deny it. It’s just so glorious and shiny! So we’ve contacted Marc Trinder, Art Team Director at Charles Worthington so you can recreate this look at home. Happy Friday yo!

Marc’s given us his step by step guide to recreate Kate Middleton’s luxurious bouncy blow dry, as seen at the Dundee Rep Theatre today.

The secret behind Kate’s luscious locks? Marc says ‘it’s her down to her natural thickness’. However, do not despair if you weren’t blessed with the same amount of hair as Kate there are numerous products on the market to help you add a little oomf to limp locks!

Mark also recommends “going for a blunt cut to make the ends of your hair appear fuller. At Charles Worthington Salons we recently launched a new cutting service called the ‘cross shake’ (from £45) which creates bespoke texture and gives fullness and relaxed movement by slicing sections generously cross-ways from left to right, then top to bottom at specific points in the hair.

Here are Marc’s tips to re-create Kate’s bouncy blow dry:

  1. Add a spritz of oomph – To start with wash your hair with a volumising shampoo and conditioner and before blow drying add a thickening blow dry spray or serum. We recommend the Charles Worthington volume and bounce shampoo and conditioner, £5.99 each from Boots and Boots.com
  1. Blow dry with a big bristle brush – The secret of creating Kate’s bouncy curls is creating natural volume and bounce with the big bristles of a good brush. Marc recommends using a GHD Ceramic Vented Radial Brush (Size 4) on hair that is about 70% dry, before sealing it with a shot of cold air. “Use rollers on your fringe and parting to add more volume from the root, and if you don’t feel the curls are big enough at the bottom go over using a GHD curve.”
  2. Hold with hair spray – “Always finish a bouncy blow dry with a strong hold hairspray. I also tell my clients to spray their hairspray on to their hairbrush to brush away any flyaways through the day too”. Marc recommends giving the blow dry a more natural feel by tucking one side of your hair behind your ear. We think that the Charles Worthington volume and bounce texturising spray, £6.99 from Boots and Boots.com is perfect for this.

And there you have it! Try out Kate’s bouncy blow this weekend and let us know how you get on by tagging us on Twitter or Instagram. Can’t be bothered to do it yourself? Book in for the ‘Kate’ at The House of Charles Worthington, 28 Great Queen Street, London WC2B 5BB (020 7831 5303)
