As she is carrying the heir to the throne, it’s very important when Kate colours her hair to use products that are ammonia-free and low in chemicals. Colouring Kate’s hair, we would look at using a great semi-permanent colour in a rich brown that would add lustre and a small amount of warmth to create a multidimensional look.
A great haircut will keep this style looking its best. Remember to keep long blunt layers in the hair to create the illusion of thickness and prevent flyaway ends. A styling cream is the ideal product to use in this hairstyle.
Step 1: Shampoo the hair with a sulfate and paraben-free product such as O&M’s Maintain The Mane.
Step 2: Apply a dark mahogany brown tone to damp hair in O&M’s Liquid CCT that is 100 per cent ammonia-free, minus the smell for the expecting mother.
Step 3: Always condition with a low chemical shampoo after a semi-permanent to lock in the colour.
Step 1: Liberally apply a styling cream like O&M’s Style Guru through mid-lengths and ends on damp hair. Using a ceramic brush take large sections and curl the ends.
Step 2: Apply styling cream on tips of fingers and rack through ends to create texture and break-up curl.
Step 3: Using a few drops of shine serum like O&M’s Frizzy Logic, scrunch through ends of hair to seal flyaways and set wave in place.
