A little while ago I did a no-heat Kate Middleton hair tutorial. It’s funny because you think that her hair must be this complicated thing and that you’d have to have a stylist to do it. But I am no stylist and it was easy peezy. So easy you don’t even have to use a curling iron! I personally think the style is very pretty and can be worn to a fancy night out. I hope you agree!
Luisa, the owner of a Kate Middleton fan page on Facebook, contacted me and asked me to create another Kate Middleton hair tutorial so she should share it. Then she sent me a ton of ideas to choose from! It was fun inspiration! Let’s get to the tutorial!
Kate Middleton Hair Style
If you watch the video below you can see that my hair was completely straight before doing this style. I didn’t even curl it to get the little ‘curls’ on top of the bun. It’s so easy, guys, I can’t even tell you. In fact, the video is less than 7 minutes long and I am pretty sure you could do this yourself in less than 10 minutes.
What do you think? I realize they aren’t exact. Hers is a little messier and he bun is a little lower and smaller. But I think the gist of it is there and you can adjust it as you like. If you want a messier bun, then pin the top more messy. If you want a lower, smaller bun, then roll it a little smaller, not as long like mine.
What you’ll need for this Kate Middleton hair style:
- Dry shampoo – I don’t think you really need it but I used it for holding the tease and my hair was a little dirty.
- Bobby Pins – I like these ones.
- Teaser Comb
- Hair Spray
- Tiny, thin elastic
- Thicker hair tie
- Hair spray
I’ll give you a little run down, but watching the video will probably be more helpful. By the way – do you guys prefer videos or do you like picture tutorials? I was under the impression that video is better, but I’d love to hear what you think!
Start by using the dry shampoo if you need to. Then separate out the front section of hair from behind your ears all the way up. Then tease from the crown all the way down to create the volume you want. Then tie your hair in a low ponytail with the thicker hair tie. Do a ‘topsy turvy’ ponytail where you create a hole and flip your hair under through it. Then use the smaller tie and tie up the end of that ponytail. Roll it up into a bun and secure with bobby pins. Then create the curls or messiness on top with the hair that was left out in front by sweeping it back and pinning it.
Phew! Got all that? No? Okay, here’s the video
