The easy trick Kate Middleton uses to keep her hair looking polished

·2-min read

Any time you spot the Duchess of Cambridge out and about, you’ll agree that she always looks so… poised. From her incredible monochrome blazer/trouser combos to those super chic midi dresses, she always gets a big tick in the fashion department.

But then, there’s her incredible beauty looks, too. Of course, Kate doesn’t switch it up too often. She tends to stick to the same makeup look, which typically involves fresh skin, a nude/pink lip and eyeliner.

But sometimes, just sometimes, the Duchess gives us an absolute serve with her signature bouncy hair – and she isn't afraid to mix it up, as shown by a new hairstyle Kate has been sporting recently.

Before we get into it, here’s a reminder of how the Duchess has usually worn her hair over the years: signature curls, lots of volume and usually sitting in front of her shoulders:

Yesterday, though, while visiting the Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, Kate tucked her hair behind her ears and pushed the lengths behind her shoulders – something she has started doing more often.

When doing this, Kate relies on a super easy trick to give her hair a more polished finish. She does a middle or side parting on only a small section at the front of her hair. These sections are then tucked neatly behind her ears and the rest of her hair is brushed backwards – vitally, with no parting – for a touch of volume.

Basically, it’s a great way to keep your hair looking neat from the front without it seeming totally flat. And if you give this a try, we recommend using bobby pins to keep your hair tucked behind your ears.

It's a technique, she also used at the Top Gun: Maverick premiere:

If you’re after a bit more volume, feel free to slightly backcomb the back zero-parting section for more oomph. But be warned: brushing out backcombing can be a right pain. Literally.
