All eyes were on the Duchess of Cambridge yesterday, when she presented the Queen Elizabeth II Award for Design. The eagle-eyed first, spotted that she was wearing an Edeline Lee dress, before others turned their attention to her hair.
While usually it's Kate's blow-dry that garners hair-focused attention - glossy lengths, buckets of volume at the root - the Duchess, this time around, opted for a look that was decidedly more modern. That's right, the Duchess' blow-dries have seemingly been put on hiatus. Enter slicked down, straight hair complete with a precision centre parting.

Kate's new look still has that gentle touch of volume at the crown, you'll notice.
While that classic blow-dried look is never likely to fall out of favour, this style does feel fresher. Gen Z are also in agreement. Remember when TikTokers 'cancelled' side partings? Shaking up something as simple as a hair parting can totally revitalise your style.
