Kate Middleton’s new hairstyle has been revealed as "gringe" or a grown-out fringe. The hairstylist behind the Duchess of Cambridge’s new look Richard Ward shared the details of the cut on “This Morning” that was aired on Tuesday.
Middleton sported the new hairstyle when she visited the Crathie Kirk church in Scotland for Sunday morning prayers. It was the first time in two months that she returned to spotlight and impressed with her chic 70s hairstyle. She turned to her trusted hairdresser Ward to make the change.
“Fringes are really versatile – they are a great way of updating your look without doing anything too drastic, and there’s a style to suit every face shape. A fringe makes an instant style statement,” the stylist said, adding that it can add structure, soften the face and highlight or define features and looked youthful.
Ward, who has earlier transformed Middleton’s brunette tresses into the glossy blowouts, said that the long fringes are not too bold, but can change the look completely. Also, he said that there is no additional worry of losing the length of the hair and it is also easy to grow. Ward added that the style is “timeless and ageless” and never go out of fashion.
According to the hairdresser, the long fringe is the best way to experiment with style, without risking a complete new style. Ward said that it suits most people as they are extremely soft and feminine and work well whether a person has long or short hair. Even if the tresses are tied back or styled into an up "do," it makes the style look far less severe.
“This Morning” host Holly Willoughby tried the new look for herself on air, she received a makeover from Middleton’s hairdresser. The 34-year-old presenter spontaneously asked Richard to chop her blonde locks live on air. But, she warned him not to cut it too short.
After the makeover session, she looked thrilled with the result. But, she was clearly not happy with the name "gring" and wanted Ward to change it. The hairdresser also carried out makeovers for three other women from the audience.
