After the summer vacation,Kate Middleton returned to her royal duties and visited HMP High Down prison in Surrey, England. The Princess of Wales appeared in public with an updated hairstyle. She did not radically change her image, but refreshed her look with curtain bangs and deeper hair color.
OBOZREVATEL has collected new photos of Prince William's wife and also decided to analyze how her hairstyles have changed throughout the years. Catherine has always remained true to her style, which, according to many experts, indicates the support of the future queen for her personal brand.
Thus, Middleton visited the colony as a patron of The Forward Trust. She came to check out how the charity supports those who are in correctional facilities and cope with the consequences of criminal justice.
The 41-year-old Princess of Wales is wearing a stylish dark purple suit by Alexander McQueen, which is considered her favorite brand. The trousers and jacket were in harmony with a milk top and suede pumps by Gianvito Rossi.
However, fashion experts and stylists paid special attention to Kate Middleton's updated hairstyle. They believe that the changes in the princess's image indicate her desire to follow trends, but at the same time "not to run too far ahead" of the rules of the royal family.
"The hairstyle is a little longer and has more layers. It shows trust, compassion, kindness, and a desire to show that she is like many women who can and will change over time," stylist Lisa Talbot said in an interview with the Daily Mail.
She suggests that the princess not only dyed her curls a darker shade and cut her curtain bangs, but also had hair extensions to add volume and thickness.
As for the evolution of the princess's hairstyles, since she was a little girl she wore fringes that beautifully framed her face on both sides. Kate has never had straight, thick bangs - she prefers an elongated "curtain" that falls down the sides. Although there was a period with relatively short bangs in Middleton's life when she was still a student.
Middleton's natural hair color is brown. From this we can conclude that she never experimented with her image and remained true to the trend of naturalness. The princess only occasionally made her hair lighter or darker.
In her youth, Catherine most often wore her hair loose, but after becoming a duchess, she began to try different hairstyles, including curls gathered in a low bun or ponytail in a duet with a hat, hoop or even a tiara, as well as various mallowy hairstyles with barely noticeable hairpins.
Her image has become more noble, elegant and restrained. And even now, returning more and more often to loose hair, Middleton's styling is different from what she did in her youth. Catherine's hair used to be somewhat sloppy and textured, but now it is perfectly styled large curls with a neat parting mainly on the side.
The wife of the heir to the British throne does not curl her hair from the roots, which makes her hairstyle even more natural. The slightly curled ends look elegant and well-groomed.
