Britney Williams, stylist at Bumble and bumble Downtown Salon in New York City offered her take on Kate Middleton‘s wedding hairstyle and provides tips on how to achieve it yourself.
“Kate’s down ‘do looked gorgeous – elegant enough for her big day but true to her personal style. I’ve rarely seen her wear her hair up, so it seems only appropriate that her wedding hairstyle be a dressed-up, perfect version of her everyday self.
To get Kate’s long, wavy locks, start by applying a root lifting spray like Bumble and bumble Thickening Hairspray all over damp hair. Blow dry with a round brush for a smooth foundation with volume and a bit of bend. Use a 1-inch curling iron to add wave by working around the head in sections with the same width as the barrel of the curling iron. After the curls have cooled for a minute or two, use a flat brush to loosen and soften them into flowing waves.
To enhance the definition of the waves, spray a bit of Shine On Finishing Spray ($25) on hands and gently work through the hair. Pull back the hair from the sides of the head and secure with bobby pins. Finish with a healthy spritz of Spray de Mode ($26) to give flexible hold that will last through the day without making hair crunchy.”
