How to get Kate Middleton's Diamond Jubilee hair

Thursday June 07, 2012 - 16h05

Kate Middleton looked every bit the princess at the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

The beautiful Duchess always looks stunning in her chic vintage outfits and true to form she wore an elegant cream long-sleeved lace knee-length dress. She teamed it with nude court shoes, pearl earrings, a sparkling ring and another one of her trademark fascinators. She's been rocking fascinators all week; we saw her at the garden party at Buckingham Palace in a pastel pink one and earlier this week she sported a red one.

Kate's Chestnut tresses

She went for natural makeup as usual and her flowing chestnut locks were in a pretty half up half down chignon style. William's wife sticks to simple yet elegant hairdos and still manages to look gorgeous. Her long chestnut tresses have a natural wave and soft bouncy curls and this timeless style helps show off their beauty and highlights her beautiful face and stunning smile.

The Duchess Of Cambridge has added her own twist to the royal dress style and since marrying William her look has blossomed from reserved and safe to elegant and gracious like any princess. But her glowing tresses remain the same long beautiful and glossy.

Get your own Duchess 'do

Section off the top half of your hair using your fingers to trace a line from the top of your hair on both sides going back now spray hairspray directly onto a hairbrush and brush back until smooth. Next tie off with a small elastic creating a small ponytail. Wrap the ponytail around its base to create a bun and secure with another elastic or several bobby pins.

Diana stole the nation's hearts and we have no doubt Catherine will do the same and with your own Duchess style you might even steal a few hearts yourself this summer.
