Kate Middleton’s hair routine is a mystery but celeb hairstylist Richard Ward is only party to it. However, he is not allowed to speak about the Duchess of Cambridge’s hair secrets. But he said that getting the same look as Kate’s glossy, bouncy and perfectly coiffed long locks are possible with a hairbrush.
The hairstylist has been styling Kate’s hair since the time she was in university at St Andrew’s. According to Ward, Kate’s famous Chelsea blowdry is possible with the help of his own hair brush — Tangle Angel that costs only $13. The hairstylist combs wet hair with the brush.
The Tangle Angel helps to “lift the hair and really get to the cuticle.” Ward told not to be afraid to try out twirling with the adorable pink brush in heart shape. However, it is not known whether Kate actually uses the brush for her hair regimen.
Meanwhile, Ward gave some hair advice to not use too much product, and not “zhuzhing the hair too much while blowdrying to avoid frizz.” The hairstylist has been styling the Middletons for over 12 years. Kate has been visiting the same salon since her university days, while her mom Carole Middleton also visits Ward.
The hairstylist has his eponymous salon off London’s King’s Road. He was also the one jointly responsible (alongside his former employee James Pryce) for Kate’s famous wedding day demi-chignon. Kate’s blow dry was nicknamed by the U.K. media as the Chelsea blow dry and later trademarked by Ward.
“It's not just about Kate's hair — it is beautifully finished, frizz-free, shiny hair. It's a hairstyle that is well finished,” said Ward, talking to People in March about Kate’s hair. The stylist now has a team of more than 90 people, who look after the hair of more than 1,000 clients at his newly revamped salon every week.
