The Duchess of Cambridge's best hairstyles: from elegant updos to *that* flawless blow-dry

Since the Duchess of Cambridge married Prince William, and subsequently joined the Royal Family, eight years ago, she’s learnt to master the art of dressing appropriately for every occasion.

The attention to detail in her outfit planning, from the designer’s nationality to the length of the skirt, is considerable - and always complimented perfectly by her hairstyles.

The handiwork of her hairdresser, Amanda Cook Tucker, Kate’s hairdos tend to be big news. A chic chignon will often make headlines and even the news that the mum-of-three’s had a few inches chopped off can land a national newspaper’s front page.

Tucker has worked with the 38-year-old since the 2012 Diamond Jubilee tour of South East Asia. While Chelsea’s Richard Ward is responsible for Kate’s colour, it’s Tucker that styles and teases the Duchess’ hair into iconic updos and *that* flawless blow-dry for events and engagements.

Kate’s trust in Tucker isn’t misplaced: the Duchess’ has become quite the hair muse. While her romantic wedding hairstyle might have gone against tradition, it sparked a huge increase in half-up, half-down looks for brides globally.

And we hazard a guess that desire to copy Kate’s hairstyles hasn’t lessened. From relaxed ponytails to elegant side buns, her hairstyle portfolio boasts looks we can all copy - whatever the occasion.
