10 Highly Valuable Beauty Lessons Kate Middleton Has Taught Us Over The Years

Including the hair colour rule she always sticks to

Kate Middleton

If, like us, you're craving all things royal post Platinum Jubilee, you've come to the right place. Today we wanted to pay homage to Kate Middleton and more specifically, the make-up, hair, skincare and beauty lessons we have learnt watching her over the past few years.

Never one to follow trends, as Duchess of Cambridge, Kate is the definition of classic style. That doesn't mean she doesn't switch her look up however, especially when it comes to her hair.

From experimenting with fringes and length to a scattering of sun-kissed highlights, Kate's more tentative approach to beauty trends is exactly why she never sets a foot wrong.

As a very modern royal, Kate isn't afraid to get stuck in herself, we all remember the rumours that she did her own wedding make-up, although we think royal MUA Hannah Martin might have had a little something to do with that.

All this means that with a little bit of prior knowledge, Kate's look is actually more obtainable than you might think and thankfully for you, we are more than happy to supply your Duchess education.

You may have to master the art of the perfect blow-dry, however...

1. Remember this one hair colour rule

Like we mentioned, Kate does switch up her hair colour. In the summer she adds a few honey blonde highlights and in the autumn/winter months returns to a rich chestnut brunette. The rule she sticks to though? Never going more than two shades lighter or darker than her natural colour. This is a guide that many hairdressers recommend as not only does it ensure your colour suits your complexion, but it also prevents damage as no drastic corrections are ever needed.
