Glass hair – hair so shiny it reflects light like a mirror – is the one beauty trend we're determined to nail this festive season, especially after seeing the Princess of Wales give a masterclass in how it's done.

Kate recently stepped out in arguably her best look yet, attending the annual Royal Variety Performance in London with her husband, Prince William.

Dressed to the nines for the prestigious event, the royal looked stunning wearing a floor-length teal blue gown, accessorised with diamond jewels and a matching bedazzled clutch.

But what arguably stole the show was her luxurious-looking hair, which had been styled in her classic bouncy curly blowout. Please excuse us while we fetch our sunglasses, for fear of being blinded by that shine.

Hair health has risen in popularity in recent years, meaning that so has the sub-beauty trend 'glass hair'; you can't achieve one without the other. Clearly, despite having her hair styled daily with an abundance of products and heated tools, Kate has managed to maintain the integrity of her lengths.

Of course, some are luckier than others (it's genetics roulette) but, if you're after a similarly glossy look, then listen up. Firstly, you're going to want to flesh out a nourishing haircare routine – whether you've got thinning hair, fine hair, or lacklustre hair, there's a shampoo and conditioner for all.

Then, to upkeep the shine when styling, reach for a hair oil. Finally, use our favourite Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray on damp hair before activating its humidity-proofing powers with heat. If it's good enough for Amal Clooney and Jennifer Lopez...

Et voilà! Glass hair here you come!
