Her beautiful, bouncy locks are always admired at every official Royal engagement, so it was no surprise when the Duchess of Cambridge left the hospital with her newborn son that her hairstyle looked immaculate. With soft waves, enviable volume and a healthy shine, the question on many people’s lips was, ‘How can I get Kate’s hair?’

Even after pregnancy and labour, the Duchess of Cambridge’s locks looked in tip top condition. With this in mind, The Sloaney has created a one-stop guide to help you recreate the trademark hairstyle exhibited by Kate.

Step 1

Before you begin any styling it is really important that you prepare your hair well. We recommend giving it a thorough wash with the Bumble and Bumble Shine range. The Shine range is available in a travel pack of three that also includes a finishing spray that adds some extra dazzle to your locks at the end. However, before reaching this step, first start with the cleansing shampoo and conditioner. It will help create a glossy look right from the beginning.

To make sure you hair is in the best possible condition, we recommend following your wash with a special treatment. The Aveda Remedy Dry Treatment Masque is formulated with a patent-pending deep moisture complex that penetrates hair to deliver lasting and intense moisture. This hair treatment hydrates, conditions and detangles to improve dry hair by up to 63%.

Gently dry your hair with a towel and whilst it is damp add some Michael Van Clarke thickening blow dry spray. This will ensure you have the best possible chance of holding a voluminous look.  Unique thickening agents with flexible memory will make your hair feel instantly fuller. Once you have sprayed it generously onto your hair, then you should start blow drying using a large brush. However, don’t finish your blow dry completely as the next step is crucial for recreating Kate’s style.

The Babyliss Big Hair Hot Brush has been designed to give a salon blow dry finish at home. Whilst it may be more difficult to use this on completely wet hair, it is the perfect accessory for the final stages of perfecting your style. The rotating action of the brush, combined with the hot air helps to give a real sense of fullness and body.

Once you have finished the styling, try to position your hair exactly as you would like it to look around your face. For example, if you would like a fringe a certain way, or one side to be swept off your face, position the sections accordingly. Then give your hair the once over with Big Sexy Hair’s Hairspray. This product is incredible for providing invisible hold and is by far the best hairspray on the market for setting a certain look.

Now your ‘Kate hair’ is nearly complete. The final step is to return to the Bumble and Bumble Shine set to apply a modest layer of the glistening mist. It is really important that you don’t go overboard with this product as it gives brilliant results when used cautiously. Too much and you could ruin the style with over shine.
