Kate Middleton debuted a chic, slightly shorter haircut this week, which, of course, we all noticed instantly. Now the Duchess of Cambridge’s hairdresser, Richard Ward, is explaining why she made the change.
It’s a practical style and a great option for a mom who has had long hair, who has a busy life and is short on time. It’s slightly more sophisticated but with all the benefits of long hair.”
That makes complete sense. We’ve all noticed that Kate’s really stepped up her pattern of royal engagements since returning to her duties after taking the summer off. It was considered her “maternity leave” since she gave birth to Princess Charlotte last spring.
Richard explained the practicalities of the Duchess’s shorter hair.
It’s much easier to look after and takes half the time to blow dry.”
Yet it’s not too big of a change.
It still has the feeling of long hair. It has more bouncy movement because of the long layers and shorter length.”
Kate only needs to get trims every six to eight weeks, which is even better for a mom-on-the-go! Personally, I like her hair better at this length than slightly longer, so I’m a fan. How about you?
