Fashion exactly how to get the look: How to get Princess Kate's Modern Tiara Blow dry:Part 1: Create the front section that frames the face..."Part the hair in the centre at the front of the hairline.""Separating the first section (using a tail comb for precision) 1.5 inches away from the hairline to create a headband shape over the front of the head. (Tie or clamp the rest of the hair at the back of the head to keep clear.)""Smooth the hair around the head separating each side of the parting and following the hair down and round to the base of the skull, creating a neat and tight headband effect. Using a tiny clear hairband at the base of the skull to keep the section together, you can use flat hair grips if needed but must be hidden under the back section of hair."Part 2: Back section of the hair..."This requires teasing at the root in small sections to create volume around the crown of the head, making sure the lengths and ends are smooth and combed. Add hairspray in between each tease for maximum hold.""Once the teasing has been accomplished to the desired volume. Using a fine tooth comb to smooth the top over to hide the teasing.""The tiara would now be placed where the first and second section meets" View this post on Instagram A post shared by C L O & F L O (@cloandflo)If you're looking for your own tiara moment, you can also try try SK Hair & Beauty, founded by Stephen Casali on 161 Ebury Street in London.
