You've heard the news by now, Kate Middleton is preggers! To celebrate, let's discuss our envy for her full, rich, shiny hair. Yes, I'm assuming you're jealous of it too. I got the scoop from Edward Tricomi, Co-Owner of Warren-Tricomi Salons in NYC on the secret behind her mirror-like shine and how to recreate her sophisticated half up, half down 'do that's perfect for holiday parties. “Lady Kate kills it with this, taking a look that is sophisticated yet surprisingly simple to create. The off-center pin curls are unexpected, innovative and original," states Tricomi. "To get her shine, I recommend using a hair glaze to bring out the shine and richness of your color."
- After blowdrying smooth, curl large sections of your hair with a 1 1/2" iron all around your head to create a soft bounce.
- Divide your hair into two sections from ear to ear across the back of your head and brush the top section straight back.
- Take the hair from your temple and pull it away from your face, twirling it into a pin curl in the back and secure it with bobby pins that match your hair color. Repeat on the other side.
