Hair Care Fit for a Queen: The Secret to Kate Middleton’s Gorgeous Locks
Deep down, every woman longs to have a smooth and sleek tresses fit for a princess – Princess Kate Middleton to be exact. The world fell in love with Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, during her slow-growing romance and highly anticipated wedding to Prince William. As Kate crossed the bridge from “commoner” to royalty, she quickly became known for her fashion savvy and unique style that has been emulated by women all over the world. But, while many of us appreciate Kate for her stunning good looks, timeless grace and iconic style, we all simply LOVE her hair! And recently Kate’s stylist, James Pryce of Richard Ward Salon and Metrospa, has spoken out on how her tresses’ tonal color and simple long layers can be replicated with the help of a professional hairstylist or colorist.
If you want to achieve a look befitting Kate Middleton, you will need to rethink your daily hair care regimen. Princess-worthy hair requires serious conditioning. In order to keep your hair in tip-top shape, be sure to visit your hairstylist frequent. Kate Middleton has been visiting the same salon for eight years and has developed a strong relationship with Pryce, who travels with her for public appearances and other occasions.
If women want to keep their hair smooth and sleek, they may want to think about switching to a sulfates-free shampoo. Shampoos that use sodium lauryl sulfate in their formulas can strip the hair of its natural shine and contribute to frizz. To ensure princess-worthy shine, wash with a sodium sulfate-free shampoo.

Conditioning and Straightening
Considering Kate’s body and shine, it’s no wonder why many women are interested in Kate’s hair. It has been reported that Kate achieves her beautiful hair texture and distinctive shine through the use of keratin treatments. Keratin treatments have been gaining a lot of buzz with women who are looking for a more permanent solution to achieve radiant hair. Made popular in Brazil, keratin-based conditioning and straightening treatments work to replenish keratin, a protein naturally found in hair. As the keratin is absorbed into the hair, it fills in the damaged hair cuticle – leading to smoother, straighter hair.
Keratin-based treatments last for two months and can cost upward of $300 in a salon setting. Women can opt for a cheaper DIY keratin-based conditioning treatment by using silk protein masks on the hair. For best results, leave the protein masks on the hair overnight.
Whether or not you were like us and tuning in at 4 AM last spring to catch all of Kate and Will’s wedding festivities, you can’t deny that the Duchess has fantastic hair. And now, thanks to Pryce, we know how to try and duplicate it.
